All his best work in one spot. This collection goes beyond his life in Alaska and Call of the Wild. It also includes my favorite, "John Barleycorn." That novel was about London's life long fight with alcoholism starting with downing a small bucket of beer as a small child. ( )

Ever since I read The Call of the Wild and In a Far Country, Jack London has inhabited my imagination. Not long ago I visited Alaska a few times, both in winter and summer - though winter was undeniably a special time for me since it brought back all these memories of reading Jack London as a teen back in hot, steamy Brazil. Funny how life turns out. I love this book and highly recommend it. ( )

Reading these stories is like being stabbed by your best friend. Over and over, fresh with each new story. His writing compells you to read, but he always manages to leave you feeling hopeless and dirty by the end of the story. I didn't read them all, because I understand why he wrote that way. It was the way he felt. He had a great mind, but instead of dedicating it to God and receiving hope and light from Him, he took hold of man's philosophy, eliminated God, and found only despair.
"Martin Eden" was the last book I read, and it is my favorite of all his works because it shows clearly the end result of man's reasoning without God. It makes me so sad to see how close he was to the truth, yet because of his spiritual blindness, he never saw truth clearly. He never saw that the gift of his mind and genius was from God. The "humanness" of man is that which God placed in us, and it sets us apart. It is not something which has occurred because of time and chance, or because of our own struggles. It is the spark of the divine.
In spite of their excellence, I am tired of being stabbed by his empty philosophy, so I shall stop reading his works, but I am glad I stopped after Martin Eden, it was a most wonderful look inside the heart and brain of a great, yet "hope" less author. I've kept White Fang and Call of the Wild on my shelves. ( )
