What's your idea about Mr. London's novels and short stories?

I have read his book "The Call of the Wild" and it was a terrible book. All his books, as I have found out, are about wolves in the Alaskan wild. It's really lame. The whole book was boring. It was horrible that publishers back then would allow such books to be published and let people read them. Don't read any of his books.

I have read many of his works, and I must say they are great..Have you read Martin Eden? It is neither about wolves nor Alaska. In call of the wild, which is a masterpiece you encounter a great psychological exploration of animals in cooperation with human, yet within the expanse of wild nature. In to build afire, which I say is one of the greatest short stories ever written, you see the submissive, and to an extent foolish venture of a man! In white Fang, you gain a acrimonious existence of man as a very feeble creature in COLD Alaska....Read them, they are great...

They are not all "boring" and "about wolves in the Alaskan wild". You should read Martin Eden, it is about a sailor that falls for a upper class girl and, obviously, because of the class divid can't marry her, so he teaches himself to be a writer and I won't ruin the ending but it is very insperational and quite philosophical. And I dont think there are any wolves in it. haha.
