really liked it
Read from April 12 to 14, 2012 — I own a copy

A post-apocalypse novel from the early 20th century. This novel holds up quite well against the current crop of zombie apocalypse novels being published today. The hero of the story is an ex UC Berkeley literature professor. The obligatory alpha male makes an appearance. What's fascinating is how close Jack London was able to guess the worlds current population.
