Torn by a quirk of fate from his life as a dilettante and intellectual, Humphrey van Weydon finds himself at the whim of the ruthless Wolf Larsen. The 2 men - the one youthful, idealistic, and upper-class, the other ruthless, dangerous, self-taught, and self-determined - inevitably become adversaries. As he does in Call of the Wild and White Fang, Jack London dramatizes in this story the violent encounter between safe, genteel comfort and a brutal set of circumstances.

Listener Opinions

    " "Mom, you HAVE to read this book!" Isaac kept insisting. So I listened to it on CD and enjoyed this sea adventure that reminds me of Moby Dick. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb | 1/31/2014

    " Rather a gruesome tale that wraps up a little too nicely, The Sea Wolf was an entertaining and sometimes harrowing read. In a way, it could be considered a good coming of age novel, nautical style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben Bingham | 1/26/2014

    " Intriguing and slightly disturbing book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marty | 1/21/2014

    " Wow. Sea Wolf is a story exploding with interesting characters and a strong narrative. The story takes some unexpected twists and turns, but it ends up in a good spot, even if it is a little bit unsettling or it might feel a little anti-climatic. I walked away satisfied. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 VeeDawn | 1/14/2014

    " Wolf Larsen is really harsh--rather like the personification of nature with no morality to soften him. We humans need that softening, it is the best part of who we are and what we can become. Still Humphrey has never handled himself out in nature and it really is good for the his development to cross paths with Wolf and finally learn how to take care of himself. I like this book a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donald Stevens | 12/29/2013

    " What fun I had rereading this. I read it as an extra credit project in 10th grade. I had already read CALL OF THE WILD they were reading for class. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Quinn | 12/26/2013

    " Really a 3.5. This is the very facinating story of a weenie that becomes a man under the guiding hand of a mean old captain. And throw in a little love story to boot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shellieslp | 12/23/2013

    " Great story about a man who's life and character is changed by a near-death experience and the aftermath of having to survive in a completely new environment. I love to imagine how I would handle such a situation! Kept me on the edge of my seat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Theo | 12/20/2013

    " I liked the adventure at the end of the book, but thought it was really slow until then. Itt had good philosophy's though. Interesting to think about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marts (Thinker) | 11/2/2013

    " About the captain of the 'Ghost', Larsen and his crewman Van Weyden "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cnochur | 2/21/2013

    " Damn good if you like nautical adventure AND moral relativism, which who doesn't? The only dissapointment is the totally conventional and unoriginal love story that takes up the final act. Entirely worth it, though, to meet Wolf Larsen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances Heneghan | 2/5/2013

    " The undisputed master of writing about life in the wilderness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 12/18/2012

    " Great book. The story was suspenseful and the characters were very well written. You could identify with the different conflicts the characters had. A very good and fast read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 matt | 4/29/2012

    " Voicerferously recommended to me. Wasn't that great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Cook | 11/24/2011

    " I hated every second of reading this book, until I finished it, and I realized I actually like it a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tebafin | 11/14/2011

    " A good classic book...evil vs. good... soul vs. man... love vs. hate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Calderq | 8/1/2011

    " That a belief in God is more important than life. And it was interesting to follow the main character strengthen as Sea Wolf became weak. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gillian | 5/18/2011

    " I <3 Wolf Larsen. THAT is a man. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maddie | 5/16/2011

    " Ho-ho the descriptions of how hot Captain Larsen is are right up my alley...the philosophical discussions and whatnot were also pretty interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 5/12/2011

    " I am always drawn to books that are considered Classics.

    It was a good read, though I wish the tension between Wolf and Hump would have played out more thoroughly and completely via a show down of wits, arguements wherein one cedes to the others opinion.

    Still a good read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 5/10/2011

    " Tuned out almost immediately. I got through a chapter, but just barely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angus | 5/1/2011

    " It was a bit uneven at times but an overall enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Quinn | 4/29/2011

    " Really a 3.5. This is the very facinating story of a weenie that becomes a man under the guiding hand of a mean old captain. And throw in a little love story to boot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 4/18/2011

    " There's so much to say about this book, I don't even know where to begin. Surely, this is one of my new favorites! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 4/8/2011

    " Good story, though, it didn't blow my mind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanine | 4/2/2011

    " OK, not as engaging as his other works. The story jumps around, it feels like it was 2 separate ideas mashed clumsily into one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex | 3/28/2011

    " The story begins as an examination of the philosophical clash between Darwinism and civilization, quickly derailing into a sorry excuse for a love story. I wasn’t expecting Moby Dick, but this was just lame. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dex | 3/28/2011

    " Great book. The balance of questions and answers provided through action is wonderful, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barry | 2/12/2011

    " I'm a big fan of adventure stories, consequently I like Jack London. I thought the ending a bit weak on this one, but overall a rousing sailing adventure. "

About the Author
Author Jack London

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. Before making a living at his writing, he spent time as an oyster pirate, a sailor, a cannery worker, a gold miner, and a journalist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction writing. He is best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike gold rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire,” “An Odyssey of the North,” and “Love of Life.”  He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen.” He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, including The Iron Heel, The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
