That's a cultural thing. Americans can say the same thing about Dickens (wrongly I believe): A massive rambling jumble of wordiness that certainly captures the essence of life sucking in Victorian Britain.

tbf melville is a completely different kettle of fish to dickens. dickens would be indistinguishable from every other victorian melodramatist if it weren't for a knack for quirky characters and a socialist stick up his arse. it is good quality plot-driven narrative fiction and nothing more. moby-dick, on the other hand, is timeless; it's not something you read but something you live. it has more in common with paradise lost than great expectations.

"bartleby the scrivener" and "billy budd" are classics in their own right, too.

i read it once. i enjoyed the first third, it was creepy and seemed to be leading somewhere interesting, but then the pacing just ground to a standstill and the plot seemed to completely fizzle out . . . that is, until the child orgy. suffice it to say i've not bothered checking out any of his other work.

Bear in mind I appreciate both Melville and Dickens. I'm just pointing out how the perceptions of them can be culturally driven
