Джек Лондон Adventure. We are those fools who could not rest In the dull earth we left behind, But burned with passion for the West, And drank strange frenzy from its wind.

Jack London did it again. It was a very fast moving book. The first part was rather stern and abusive but the rest of it was fantastic! !

It's great to read these classics written by one of my old favourite writers. This story is so well written you could do nothing but enjoy it. Jack gives us a unique look into plantation life, head Hunter savages, a young American girl who had received great training by her father to take care of her life, and an English plantation owner needing a partnership that only the American girl could give him. Read about the changes she brings to the plantation and its English owner. You will find this to story to be filled with interesting adventures. Read and enjoy...

Over 40 years ago I read Call of the Wild, The Sea Wolf and White Fang which were great reads and also the more notably famous books from Jack London. After reading Adventure I had forgotten how great of a writer London was. This shorter book was really enjoyable and it truly was an Adventure. Highly recommend this one. I have a few more of London's I downloaded off Amazon for free for my Kindle and looking forward to reading them all. Nothing like a good yarn!

Who knew Jack London wrote comedy? I know, I know. It was not meant to be funny but the relationship between the male and female lead sent me from pure frustration with the man to amusement at both of them. Plenty of story around them too. All you have to do is adjust your mind for the time of the story. That is just the way it was back then. Let it go.

This was a great read for me. I loved the adventures and the details of each person's thoughts and character. Has a lot of information to absorb on self control and reading the inner workings of people and the mind they have developed that makes each person unique. The love story was so sweet. I enjoyed it very much. 5 stars for me
You just cannot find a better aurthor than Jack London. He knows how to tell a tale and keep you interested. It is a shame that a modern aurthor has not filled the breech where he left off. Call of the Wild is one of the best books ever and this story is very good also.
