The Sea Wolf by Jack London
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a mighty book. It is a brilliant, heart-stopping combat between man and nature but more so a rage-filled clash of good and evil. The language is so beautiful and the battles and contentions are perfectly constructed. How can you not want to read a book with quotes like this:
~ Do you know the only value life has is what life puts upon itself? And it is of course overestimated,
for it is of necessity prejudiced in its own favour.
~ (Man) sadly overrates himself. There is plenty more life demanding to be born. Had he fallen and
dripped his brains upon the deck like honey from the comb, there would have been no loss to the
world. He was worth nothing to the world. The supply is too large.
Ever wandered what kind of life is lived by a man without a heart? He lives on the pages of this book through him you can learn how evil explains itself. I think that is a useful thing to know.
Ever wondered what a good man does in the face of monstrous depravity?
Do you think about eternity?
Read this book.
