From the author of In the Hurricane's Eye and Valiant Ambition, the riveting and critically acclaimed bestseller and a major motion picture starring Chris Hemsworth, directed by Ron Howard.
 
Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson star in a film based on this National Book Award–winning account of the true events behind Moby Dick.
 
In 1820, the whaleship Essex was rammed and sunk by an angry sperm whale, leaving the desperate crew to drift for more than ninety days in three tiny boats. Nathaniel Philbrick uses little-known documents and vivid details about the Nantucket whaling tradition to reveal the chilling facts of this infamous maritime disaster. In the Heart of the Sea—and now, its epic adaptation for the screen—will forever place the Essex tragedy in the American historical canon.

 

「艾塞克斯號」是一艘老舊的捕鯨船,排水量兩百三十八噸,雖然不大,卻是南塔克特島人口中的幸運之船,也是多數捕鯨水手渴望登船大展身手的夢想之船。1820年,艾塞克斯號載著二十一名船員在眾目凝視下從南塔克特島港口揚帆啟航,氣勢高昂地展開捕獵鯨魚的遠洋航程。
 
只是,這艘「幸運之船」似乎並不真的如此受到幸運之神的眷顧。在出海的數日後便遇到暴風雨襲擊,偏偏因為船長的傲慢而下達不當指示:調轉船身,不頂風,致使像艾塞克斯號這樣的小船無力及時避開暴風。霎時,風帆狂亂地拍打、撐索桅桿機嘎機嘎響,船體開始傾斜……接下來,到底是該返航修船?還是繼續前行?最後,決定還是繼續往前推進。任誰也沒料想到,這個決定竟將艾塞克斯號上的21名船員推向悲慘痛苦的命運!!
