Sinossi

Jack London (1876-1916) was born in squalor and rose to become one of the most recognized names in American literature. London's travel and adventure stories have made him a favorite not only among young American boys, but also among scholars and authors like George Orwell and Ernest Hemingway because of his ability to infuse his writing with his own unique philosophical beliefs. As an ardent Socialist, London's views were an often overwhelming mix of Nietzsche, Marx and Darwin's theories on evolution and society, in whom he was thoroughly well-read. His 1913 novel, "The Valley of the Moon", chronicles the journey of a working-class couple, Billy and Saxon, who leave Oakland, CA in the midst of labor strife to search for suitable farmland farther north. They find what they're looking for in the Valley of the Moon, a Native American name for the Sonoma Valley, where Jack London lived on his ranch for the last part of his life.

L'autore

John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney, January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone.

3.0 su 5 stelle This is not a masterpiece, however it has merit ... 5 febbraio 2016

This is not a masterpiece, however it has merit, particularly with regard to the first half, which treats the plight of the working class during this era. It is vaguely autobiographical, reflecting London's evolving - and often confused and contradictory - positions on social issues. The contemporary slang dialogue is sometimes rather opaque and difficult to believe, but London must have known how the lower-class people of the Bay Area spoke, so we can't say it's inauthentic. There are racial theories and corresponding, now-forbidden terms here (the "n" word, e.g.), and anyone who's incapable of regarding such things in their historical context may be unable to tolerate them. Northern Californians will find the novel interesting for its aspects of local and regional history. Those who are interested in the psychology of London the man will find insights here.

The first half of the book was fascinating, gritty, and painted a picture of labor strife so famous in San Francisco and Oakland. The second half slowly became a tourism guide of the California and Oregon coastal ranges, with unbelievable chance encounters with earlier characters in the novel. It got far fetched and too sweetly romantic. But I didn't regret the read, because London paints pictures with his words. It was perhaps more interesting to me than it might be to others, since I live in San Francisco and know all of the locations London covers in the story.

Fascinating to see California through London's eyes. The class and cultural evolutions were also fascinating. A great read for wine country enthusiasts.

I've read the book before and it is fantastic. I was purchasing a copy for a friend as a gift. This specific copy had print so small that I doubt anyone could have read it without a magnifying glass. Red the book, just not this version.

Accustomed to reading the raw adventure stories of Jack.London, this one surprised me..London.had a tender side. The book also gives an honest account of life for the ordinary person.in the early 20th century. A good read.
