    By Bettyboop100
    This Jack London classic was full of action and intrigue. I would rate it PG 14 due to the violence and gory details depicted within. This ocean adventure was hard to put down, with edge of your seat action and wonderful romance. I highly recommend it and was sorry to see the end.

    What a book! High adventure on the high seas. Deep psychology. And what a dark, twisted nemesis in Wolf Larsen. Unforgettable.

    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, Bob

    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!
