"I mean, it's a book about a dude obsessed with a whale. A whale. A whale which may or may not actually be a metphor for a vagina. And it's, like, five hundred pages long!! And NOTHING HAPPENS. There was a man, he had no leg, there was a whale, there's some racism, a big storm kills some people and then the whale shows back up and we learn that you shouldn't be obsessed with whales/vaginas and then THE END. There, I just summarized the entirety of Moby Dick in, like, two seconds AND I mentioned the word vaginas and YOU ARE WELCOME, teenagers. Erin is here to help you."
Personligen tycker jag att vi hade alldeles för lite required reading i högstadiet men visst, på gymnasiets läslista skulle jag gärna ha bytt ut en eller två böcker... (Yasar Kemal I am looking at you.)
