Having read the book, I can say that this sums it up pretty well.
I just need more of it now.
This one's on my Classics Club list, and these excerpts make me want to push it up on my TBR. Can't wait for hundreds of pages about whale oil.
I must just be in the mood for this lately. Or maybe I just love snarky texts?

I think I'd prefer the Jane Eyre one, but in either case it is kind of funny and a great commentary on our society.

Given that Jane Eyre is in my top five books ever, I think I would too. But the Ahab thing had me laughing. I'm easily amused, though, so make of that what you will.
I'm on the hold list at my library for this. I can hardly wait!
I put a hold on it, too. If I completely love it, I'll have to buy a copy. Too cute.
