I can’t believe it. Call of the Crocodile is the modern day Moby Dick.

>Both have a protagonist (Captain Ahab in Moby Dick and Joe in Call of the Crocodile) who have been hurt somehow by a beast in their past. Captain Ahab with his leg and Joe’s son was eaten by the crocodile.
>Both are very troubled and go through similar arcs
>Both novels carefully build up the creature who harmed them as dangerous and really menacing to mythical proportions
>Moby Dick and the crocodile are both revealed about halfway through the book.
>Climatic encounter with said beast and unexpected results.

Even the fucking covers look similar with the whale/crocodile on the lower left corners. Who else caught this?
