Maybe I’m the last one to find this, but I just had to share. If anyone is an audiobook fan, be sure to check out http://www.mobydickbigread.com/ to listen to Moby Dick for free.
Each chapter in this massive undertaking is read by a different person of interest – authors (China Miéville), actors (Benedict Cumberbatch), even Prime Minister David Cameron reads a chapter.
You can listen to each chapter online, as a podcast, or download them from iTunes. There is also some great art inspired by the novel included on each chapter’s web page that’s worth checking out.
I’ve only managed to get 5 or 6 chapters into Moby Dick, so I think I’ll give it a try this way!
