The Sea-Wolf

Jack London - The Sea-Wolf
The Sea-Wolf is a 1906 psychological adventure novel written by Jack London. It is about a literary critic, survivor of an ocean collision who comes under the dominance of Wolf Larsen, the powerful and amoral sea captain who rescues him. Franklin Walker calls The Sea-Wolf "one of the wolrd's great sea novels." The cover you see here is the version my grandfather gave me in the mid 80's. I never got past the second chapter until I downloaded the audio book from a public domain website and read along while on tour a few years back. I've read it twice since then without the audio book, and its become a book I like to recommend. The voice is pretty monotone, but if you can get past the first chapter you'll be ok. A great listen while on a bus or subway, or as I mentioned before if you're on tour or driving long distances.
