The Sea Wolf | [Jack London]

The Sea Wolf

Humphrey Van Weyden finds himself the captive voyager aboard the Ghost, captained by the brutal and barbaric Wolf Larsen.

Almost immediately, the slave plots his freedom - and must confront the weakness in his soul, mind and body.

Publisher's Summary

"The danger lay in the heavy fog which blanketed the bay, and of which, as a landsman, I had little apprehension." This is the first line that the listener hears in this tale of a man uprooted and thrust into the unfamiliar and dangerous world of the sealing sailor. Humphrey Van Weyden, a San Francisco sophisticate and an intellectual finds himself the captive voyager aboard the Ghost, captained by the brutal and barbaric Wolf Larsen. The desperate character of Van Weyden's voyage is defined by the fact that he is out of his element, in unimaginable peril, and the slave of this cynical and wild soul, Larsen. The rights of man vanish as the coast of California vanishes over the horizon.

Almost immediately, the slave plots his freedom - and must confront the weakness in his soul, mind and body.

Generations have been spellbound by this harrowing story of danger on the sea, psychological confrontation, and the dual nature of humankind.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "Intense reading"

    This book was quite intense. It kept me going back to my iPod. I thought the narration was excellent and the story quite amazing. I wasn't sure at times if the book could end on a good note. I was glad I pushed through the more graphic times. I wouldn't give this book to a child to read alone. I think this book needs some adult discussion along the way, not only to understand the human mind, but to relish the fact that we all make choices. Good for family reading with older children (tweens to teens, but not younger).
