Reading progress update: I've read 206 out of 752 pages.

Moby-Dick (Barnes & Noble Classics Series) - Herman Melville

Moby Dick finally got name-dropped on page 201. His name is not hyphenated in the text like it is in the title. Because reasons. I guess. 


Ahab has revealed that he's abusing his position and the trust of the ship's owners in order to turn this commercial whaling venture into his own personal revenge cruise, and all those poor widows with a stake in the profits be damned. (Well, not in so many words, but still.) Most of the crew is surprisingly okay with this. Those expressing uneasiness are basically being charisma'd into submission.


I can practically see Yojo rubbing his little wooden hands together with glee.
