A showcase of London's talent,

This review is from: A Collection of Stories (Kindle Edition)
Jack London was a superb writer who led a fascinating life. This slightly unusual collection is a superb showcase of both of these facts. Many of the stories are very well-informed reflective narratives, drawing directly from London's own experiences. This includes his time as a sailor on different vessels, and the challenges he faced learning to drive a team of horses across America. The collection also includes two short dramatic scripts at the end which are entertaining and surprisingly readable.
If you appreciate classic literature, then you can't go wrong with this collection.
The text itself appears to be very well transcribed with no major readability issues on the Kindle. The only significant problem is that there seems to be no table of contents (except a poorly-formatted list of story titles at the start), so you can't jump to a specific item.
