Moby Dick, or the Whale
It’s not often that literature is categorized as being truly unique, but this genuinely is; Moby Dick is unlike anything written before or since.
The novel is primarily about the obsessive hunt by the crazed Captain Ahab of the book’s eponymous white whale. The novel is far more than this, though. The story is filled with interesting tangents, paradoxes, philosophizing and a display of literary techniques so ahead of their time, that many have quite rightly referred to the 1851 book as the first “modern” novel.
