The Mutiny of the Elsinore, with eBook

London, Jack Author

Image Not Available

Life has lost its savor for Mr. Pathurst. New York, fame, women, and the arts have all become tedious. Searching for excitement, he books passage on a cargo vessel sailing from Baltimore to Seattle on a route that travels around the treacherous Cape Horn. Pathurst encounters more than he ever expected in rough seas, turbulent storms, and a mutinous crew. His epic struggles aboard the sailing ship Elsinore have given him a new love for life, but will he survive to profit from it?

Everyone who remembers The Sea Wolf with pleasure will enjoy this vigorous narrative. The Mutiny of the Elsinore is the same kind of tale as its famous predecessor, and it has been pronounced even more stirring by those who have read it. Jack London writes of scenes and types of people with which he is very familiar: the sea and ships and those who live in ships. In addition to the adventure element, of which there is an abundance of the usual London kind, there is a thread of romance. The play of incident—on the one hand the ship's amazing crew and on the other the lovers—results in a story that demonstrates anew what a master of his art the author is.

About the Author:

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author and adventurer whose best-known works include The Sea-Wolf, The Call of the Wild, and White Fang.

John Bolen brings his extensive theater, film, and television experience to audiobooks. His recent television appearances include CIA: Masters of Deception on the Discovery Channel, and his recent film work includes The Land and The Inn Outside the World.

From AudioFile:

Toward the end of his career, Jack London churned out a number of adventure novels to bolster the finances of his failing ranch. Among these was THE MUTINY OF THE ELSINORE, narrated by a passenger on a ship that is delivering coal from Baltimore to Seattle. Most of the book captures the pace and drama of a long, mostly uneventful sea voyage, although the action picks up when the mutiny finally starts. The novel is further marred by London's deeply racist portrayals of the characters, each of whom is defined in terms of hair and skin color, which in turn determine strength and moral standing. While John Bolen seems to be reading a text with which he is not familiar, with odd emphases, many of his accents do successfully evoke early-twentieth-century stereotypes.
