Rotten Rejections: Moby Dick

“We regret to say that our united opinion is entirely against the book as we do not think it would be at all suitable for the Juvenile market in [England.] It is very long, rather old-fashioned, and in our opinion not deserving of the opinion which it seems to enjoy.”

Excerpted from: Bernard, Andre, and Bill Henderson, eds. Pushcart’s Complete Rotten Reviews and Rejections. Wainscott, NY: Pushcart Press, 1998.
