Novel by Jack London, published in 1904. This highly popular novel combines elements of naturalism and romantic adventure. The story concerns Humphrey Van Weyden, a refined castaway who is put to work on the motley schooner Ghost. The ship is run by brutal Wolf Larsen, who, despite his intelligence and strength, is antisocial and self-destructive. Hardened by his arduous experiences at sea, Humphrey develops strength of both body and will, protecting another castaway, Maud Brewster, and facing down the increasingly deranged Larsen. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

I heartily recommend this book. It's a rich tale of broken people, some of whom find growth and redemption of sorts. Others only find payment for a lifetime of twisted thoughts and actions. I'll be reading more of Mr. London's works in the near future.
I took this book on after burning through "Call of the Wild, " and "White Fang," on my new Kindle. My first experience with Jack London and both wonderful reads. These two books gave me a lot of insight into the themes that show up in " The Sea-Wolf." So, I can recommend both of the classics as great reads which will supplement understanding "The Sea-Wolf. "
I discovered some of my all time favorite paragraphs in "Call of the Wild," and "White Fang." When Jack London is hot, he can really bang out some thought provoking and powerful images. For me, perhaps more so in the first two reads than in "The Sea-Wolf." Still, "The Sea-Wolf ," is a great adventure and a page burner on it's own. London can, and does, pour it on with his brilliant ship handling and seamanship scenes. Character development in "The Sea-Wolf " is stellar too as London creates great images and keeps the deep characters limited and vivid.
A sailing adventure, a struggle for survival, the waxing and waning of dominance, personal discovery and growth along with a love story are seamlessly wrapped together and proved to me that "The Sea-Wolf," is a classic worthy of a revisit or an introduction to Jack London's great writing.

This book is worth reading but the paper back is printed in Comic Sans. I was embarrassed and apologized. That might be a deal breaker for some, so you might want to buy a different version.
I thought Humphrey would be much like Jack London himself, but he wasn't at all. He was an interesting 35 year old who started out very meek.
