I found the whaling parts of Moby Dick to be fascinating. I've since purchased several books on whaling and even tracked down an old movie which was shot on an original whaling vessel.

Although I love the Hemingway style of not putting too much detail in a book, I also love when an author spends some time explaining something that I would not otherwise know.
