Description

Generations have been spellbound by this harrowing story of danger on the sea, psychological confrontation, and the dual nature of mankind. Humphrey Van Weyden, a San Francisco sophisticate, finds himself the captive voyager aboard the Ghost, captained by the brutal and barbaric Wolf Larsen. An excerpt: "And where am I?" I asked Johnson, whom I took, and rightly, to be one of the sailors. "What vessel is this, and where is she bound?" "Off the Farallones, heading about sou-west," he answered, slowly and methodically, as though groping for his best English, and rigidly observing the order of my queries. "The schooner Ghost, bound seal-hunting to Japan." "And who is the captain? I must see him as soon as I am dressed." Johnson looked puzzled and embarrassed. He hesitated while he groped in his vocabulary and framed a complete answer. "The cap'n is Wolf Larsen, or so men call him. I never heard his other name. But you better speak soft with him. He is mad this morning. The mate--" But he did not finish. The cook had glided in. "Better sling yer 'ook out of 'ere, Yonson," he said. "The old man'll be wantin' yer on deck, an' this ayn't no d'y to fall foul of 'im." Johnson turned obediently to the door, at the same time, over the cook's shoulder, favouring me with an amazingly solemn and portentous wink as though to emphasize his interrupted remark and the need for me to be soft-spoken with the captain..

Professional reviews

"Frank Muller does wonders with the story of foppish Humphrey Van Weyden, who grows stronger after his experiences at sea. MullerÕs chilling interpretation of the sadistic captain, Wolf Larsen, is outstanding, lending an air of anticipated violence as conditions aboard the Ghost grow more dire. Given LondonÕs well-drawn characters and thrill-a-moment plotting, including a shipwreck and a mutiny, Muller creates genuine personalities for major and secondary characters. ItÕs always possible to tell whoÕs speaking without the usual identifiers. One of audioÕs finest voice actors, Muller performs LondonÕs exciting adventure in a way that is completely satisfying.
