The Sea-Wolf

Written on October 1, 2013. Written by .

Although this book was a little slower and didn’t grab my attention as much as other great books typically do, it was definitely a really interesting book. The story follows a bookish man whose ferry sinks in San Francisco bay. He gets rescued by a sailing ship that is on its way across the Pacific to hunt for seals. The captain of the ship is a very enigmatic character who will not let the protagonist off the ship, and makes him work as a sailor. The protagonist becomes more brave and self-reliant during the voyage. He also has discussions with the captain about philosophical topics. The captain has an extremely materialist, logical, and pragmatic philosophy, to the extent that he is quite evil. The book was unique in that it blended a traditional adventure story with philosophy.

★★★★
