I was impressed. I expected an engaging story with some element of struggle. But this work, published originally in 1904, adds philosophical insight and a concise demonstration of literary techniques. The character's basis in London's own biography as a writer is interesting. I was originally drawn to this book upon having read about it while on the ferry to San Francisco.
