“Well, Lets just say I am not a huge fan of Melville. I first read Bartleby for my critical thinking and writing class and finished the whole thing asking myself, What is he trying to get at? When my Literature teacher told me we will be reading Billy Budd I thought to myself, maybe this will be different. That was not the case. Billy Budd was a story with so much momentum build up but no action of fireworks that make you say, that's why he went on and on about this. My best friend warned ,me after reading the book that it was no my kind of book but still I had to read it and be disappointed.I will probably not read many more books by Melville because the ones i read have left me feeling unsatisfied.”
