    He is a man capable of abandoning two sailors in an open boat, yet he is an avid and thoughtful reader of the moral philosophers. He is Wolf Larsen, captain of the seal-hunting Ghost and the unforgettable protagonist of one of the world's great sea novels. Tormented by his own convictions, Larsen is an enigma both fascinating and repellent to his reluctant crewman, Humphrey Van Weyden. Throughout their long and perilous voyage together, the captain's ruthless belief in the survival of the fittest is pitted against Van Weyden's "civilization".

    Stephen says: "Excellent rite of passage"
    "Spellbinding!"
    Overall

    I recommend this book highly. London's story is spellbinding and his writing, while somewhat formal and Victorian in feel, is very accessible. The narrator does a good job. The only complaint one might note is that the narrator's pronunciation of nautical terms is sometimes incorrect. That is not a major criticism, however, and this is a very enjoyable listen.
