What can I say--I'm a fan of the 'other' Jack. London's writing is kind of like a hybrid of Kerouac, Thoreau, Krakauer,and Twain. His stories are gathered from true accounts to fictitious stories based in the far-off places he's had adventurers. I love his early stuff--the short stories.

Fast 1000 pages.
like with hemingway, i'm not into london's novels as much as i'm into his short stories. i'm from minnesota, so there used to be many a snowy night i would read london and imagine that i was really in alaska.
