really liked it
Recommended for: Manly Men Doing Manly Things
Read in January, 2007

Anyone who needs a good shot of testosterone but thinks the movie 300 was a little to homo-erotic should read the Sea Wolf. This book makes Hemmingway run off like a little girly man. The main character is a woosy book-worm literary critic who gets press-ganged into a sealing crew led by the cruel and rutheless Wolf Larsson. Larsson is one of the greatest villians I've had the pleasure to read--he's intelligent and brutal, but at times you even sympathize with him.
By the way, I especially suggest this book to people who consider themselves vikings.

Alia Makki I googled Jack London's sexuality after reading that part where, for a second time in the book, the Wolf was called "Handsome" in that oh-God-has-made-you-well way.
