I listened to this book three times to get the complete enjoyment of it. The reader does a great job with the voices! Be warned "Jimmy legs is against ye".

While I couldn't even finish the first disc, the story itself seems like it's a good and well-written story. The description that Melville uses is very rich. The reader of this audiobook is fairly decent. My main problem is that I felt that this is book that I needed to actually sit down and read rather than listen to if I'm to get the full experiance.
