A classic tale of adventure at sea, tells the story of the naïve young Humphrey van Weyden, whose ship is wrecked in a terrible storm.
An allegorical tale for the younger generation of Americans facing a hostile primal world.55
What a book! High adventure on the high seas. Deep psychology. And what a dark, twisted nemesis in Wolf Larsen. Unforgettable.55
It is a book with the same thing happening over and over again it is so boring and I didn't want to read it but I wanted to see if it got any better it didn't they just went through a storm someone died or a story was told and someone gets punished over and over again it happens to every chapter do not read it trust me on this one.15
Very inticing, recommend it, to all readers young no old.55
The book was a great pleasure to read in the comfort of my own home when all hell was breaking open to Hump. I had a mere taste of this in Navy boot camp. Good twist adding Maude, and a great end. As in the books I have already read from him, the weakling becomes a man in the end. Makes you feel good. Thanks, Bob55
Jack London is a great writer and THE SEA WOLF is an excellent book, deeper than his other great books but I think that WHITE FANG and THE CALL OF THE WILD were better. Nevertheless THE SEA WOLF was fascinating; a great read, with interesting philosophical perspectives on life, and ahead of its time in how he presents men women and the relationship of how people interact with each other in the struggles of life. I highly recommend this book as a must read!55
The book was all right I like the last couple of chapters. But this book was not my cup of tea.15
