One of London’s best.
I have been a loyal fan of Jack London since I read “The Call of the Wild”, since then I have read his works prolifically. I would say that with the exception of “Martin Eden” this is his best work, incredible imagery and the signature London tale of a man finding his way and becoming something more.
Adventure on the high seas
Once again Jack London spins a yarn that has you gripped from beginning to end. A master class in storytelling
The Ultimate Maritime Villain
Captain Wolf Larsen! You can’t help fear and love him.
Great story of misfortune after misfortune for hero ‘Hump’ Van Weyden. How will it all end for hero and villain?
Well worth reading.
