- I might be biased, because this book is one of those spell-binding gems that stole my heart when I was a kid
- Who doesn't like a tale of adventure and treasure seeking? This book right here has it all, including secret passages, deadly traps, old map... Indiana Jones, eat your heart out
- London writes great women. Considering that the novel was published in 1911 both Leoncia and the Lady Who Dreams feel modern, and there is practically no sexism so typical in literature of that period. His her

One of the best adventure novels I've ever read! Got acquainted with it sometime in early teens, and the favorable impression still persists... Can not say for sure whether re-reading will improve or even maintain this perception, but definitely a great reading for formative years.

Loved this book as a kid.. While I read it in Russian. Loved it even more now as an adult in its original language!

The story got away from the author at points but the enthusiasm and romance never falters. Not especially 'kewl' for today's readers but I was immersed.

4.5*

'Hearts of Three' by Jack London is an adventure story that contains almost everything you need for a great adventure story: treasure, high-minded protagonists, beautiful woman, Indigenous people with their rituals, devious antagonists, triumph of justice, etc. Although I put only two stars for this book, I'd like to mention that it does not mean that I did not like the book, beacuse according to Goodreads rating system two stars mean the book was ok. So, yes, this book was just ok.
To my mind,

Една от любимите ми приключенчески книги. В нея има всичко необходимо за страхотен филм - търсене на съкровище, загадъчно племе, любов, битки, обрати... Ако киното беше на днешното ниво по времето на Джек Лондон, със сигурност щяха да я филмират със съответните специални ефекти в 3D, след което щеше да оглави боксофиса. Изключително добре написана и разтоварваща история.

Classical adventure story, containing all parts you need for it: treasure-seeking, love triangle, noble protagonists, beautiful women, indigenous people with their rituals, exotic places, triumph of justice.
3 stars because I'm obviously too old for these adventure stories, right time for this would have been over 20 years ago.

Jack London's novelization of an early series of adventure screenplays. Nonstop action of the ridiculous and debonair kind (and somewhat racist in that written-by-a-white-guy-in-1916 way). Indiana Jones owes a debt to the Messrs. Morgan. I feel like I should have worked a lot of exclamation points into this review.

Great book! Really enjoyed reading it, which was a surprise for me. At first, I thought it was going to be boring, but after reading 3 chapters I could not stop reading. It was such an interesting and fun book to read that I feel like I want to read it again soon.

Доста по-различно от това,което досега съм чела на Лондон, но и той сам си го казва. Изключително интересна книга, има малко мелодрама, но нещата са представени по възможно най-добрия начин, самия превод също мн ми допадна, точно в негов стил. Препоръчвам.

“Cînd adîncimile albastre se zbat şi gem înfiorate
Si-a mării spumă vînturată ne este-n faţă azvîrlită,
Alături de catargul mare nepăsători stăm spate-n spate
Si stăpînind ca şi doi demoni, întreaga hoardă razvrătită.”

Три зірочки лише тому, що я вже виросла з таких книжок. Підлітково-романтичних. Та все ж отримала велике задоволення від перекладу та видання українською мовою. Тішуся, що вона є на моїй книжковій полиці.

Для Джека Лондона очень слабовато. Мыльная опера, родство главных героев угадывалось.

Fine book if you'd like just to sit back and relax a bit. You deeply immersed in the strange world of adventure, romance, and treasure hunting -- time will fly ;) So, be warned!

Jack London was an American novelist, journalist, social-activist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was largely self educated past grammar school.

London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent ti
