    1. This is a thick, long, clunker of a book and you know what That s awesome I wish it had another 1,000 pages Not only would an additional 1,000 pages written by one of the best authors ever be an absolute joy, but I could also use it to help me reach the upper shelves in the kitchen cupboards You go Jack London, you go


    2. I found this very thick book over a thousand pages to be a great book to keep by the bed I would read a short story or two, or a chapter or two, each night before going to sleep, and enjoyed my reading While this book does not contain all of London s fiction it would take several thousand pages to contain all of his novels and stories , it contains the cream of the crop, about 2 3 ice and snow in the frozen Yukon, and 1 3 on the ocean sea in the Pacific.After an introduction by the Editors, Par [...]


    3. A friend gave this to me in elementary school she knew I loved this author and I enjoyed and recommended it so much that I eventually, inevitably, let someone borrow it years ago, and it has not come back I don t regret it, though I hope it goes on to be a favorite somewhere else Well worth reading and re reading Jack London isn t subtle, and his large themes are predictable, but I think there s something refreshing in that, and even so in his really fascinating details Very few are so realisti [...]


    4. If you ve never read Jack London you should and if you haven t read him in a while it s time to get reacquainted one of my favorite authors of all time.



    5. Nature has many tricks wherewith she convinces man of his finity the ceaseless flow of the tides, the fury of the storm, the shock of the earthquake, the long roll of heaven s artillery but the most tremendous, the most stupefying of all, is the passive phase of the White Silence All movement ceases, the sky clears, the heavens are as brass the slightest whisper seems sacrilege, and man becomes timid, affrighted at the sound of his own voice Sole speck of life journeying across the ghostly waste [...]


    6. I read the story White Fang I thought this books was very interesting This book is unique because it lets the reader see things from an animals point of view The overall plot was pretty good but it did have some flaws such as not describing the surroundings enough Its was a fairly easy book to read but it does switch from White Fang s point of view to Scott s This could be confusing at times because you didn t know who was talking and thinking Overall I d say this book was pretty good and I woul [...]

    8. I ve read many Jack London stories in one form or another over the years I lost many of the books Somewhere along the way, I got this collection I think maybe I m drawn to Jack London s work and life because of the similarities to Ernest Hemingway I ll expand on that as I move forward with reading and or re reading his stories.


    9. I gave this book a five star rating because, it is a really adventurous, and fun filled book There are many stories inside of this book that are very fun to read and will keep you turning the page I would recommend this book to other kids who like action and stories of people in the wilderness It may be a long book but after awhile you will really get into the book and the pages will fly by.


    10. My favorite works of Jack London are Tales of the Fish Patrol, based on the teenage London s experience with the San Francisco Fish Patrol in going after fishermen breaking game laws.



    11. Adventure and drama Man pitted against elements greater than himself where the smallest mistake can be fatal The inability to build a fire, a frozen death Don t forget the Sea Wolf.
