This book is brilliant, however I have given it a one star review and will never read this book again. The reason for this is because London's writing is so emotive and the story is heartbreaking I found it really difficult.

Don't get me wrong this is an important story that we should all read and it will stick with me for life but it was so challenging emotionally that after each chapter I would find my dog's and cuddle them for at least 15 minutes.

I don't need happy endings but when I read I don't want to feel utterly depressed and that is what this book did. I can't fault his writing, characters or anything.

It's not you, it's me
