Reviews of : The Road by Jack London PDF Book
Inside this Book – This was a great book. When I found the free e-book I didn’t realize it was an autobiography until I was a few pages in, then did some research on it. That just made it better. Jack London has to be one of the most fascinating figures in American literature. This slim book is a series of vignettes about the time he spent as a train-jumping hobo in his youth. It is a fantastic look into a long-past time and a unique culture. Many of the stories are funny, such as how he would win food or elude the bulls. Some inspire social outrage, like when he was imprisoned. The one that stuck with me the most concerned the gypsy camp.
Inside this book –The Road PDF Book by Jack London – When he was a teenager, London decided, for the pure fact that the road was there, to become a hobo. Later, he compiled his wanderings into a series of essays, thus, The Road. These stories are wonderful, testament to the fact that London was something far beyond The Guy Who Wrote the Wolf Books. He spent 1892-1893 hopping trains across America and Canada, getting tossed in jail for a month in Erie, playing deadly train-hopping games with railroad employees trying to ditch him, stole boats, begged, stole, thieved, and lived an incredible year or two of villainy. He ended up in Kelly’s Army and became a river pirate, alienating Kelly himself. London’s reminiscences are fun, funny, and difficult to fathom in this age of screen-scream-mini-me-me-mes. This guy was 16, notorious for being an oyster poacher in Oakland, and decking freight trains in blizzards. All the more wonderful for pointing up the absurdity and lack of our “modern” life.
