A whale of a tale.
There’s more than one ending. From Wikipedia:
Reviewers in Britain were largely favorable, though some objected that the tale seemed to be told by a narrator who perished with the ship, as the British edition lacked the epilogue recounting Ishmael’s survival.
But with either ending, the whale wins.

Ahab wasn’t too thrilled with the ending.
I never read the book as a youth. But after references to it in Star Trek II and Star Trek: First Contact, I decided to read it.
Now let’s hear the story about that little wooden boy….
I never read this book as a youth. I decided to read it after references were made in Star Trek II and Star Trek: First Contact.

Better than that scary story he told involving a bowl of petunias.
Every time he reads Moby Dick, it brings Ishmael to his face.
