I've said it before and I'll say it again:

Jack London has really boring stories!! I know not how anyone could like him!!!!!!!

Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow.

In the grey little back street in Kennington,SE London where I lived as a ten year old boy,the Yukon stories were for me a revelation and a promise of hope for a glorious world of wild nature that one day I might find.He was my idol of manhood,and I do believe that for many city kids as well as myself he became a beacon of hope that lit up our shabby lives and contributed to our being able to rise above our mundane worlds and aim for a better life and a better world than the ones we had been born into.
