Autumn of Dick - Weeks 7 & 8

Once again, I am impressed with the quality of Melville's writing, but wish he spent more of it describing action - a plot of any kind, instead of describing whales, the jawbones of whales, the legends surrouding whales, etc. I am consistently impressed with the quality of his writing, but, to quote an old friend, who became mired down in an unabridged copy of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables, I am badly in need of some bridges.

Your thoughts?
