    2. I didn t re read Jack London for a long time, and when I did, last year, I had a surprise one of my favorite pieces, and the one that is extremely popular and well loved in Russia, Smoke Bellew is virtually unknown here It is a later work, published in 1911 12, and Jack London himself called it a hack work, written for money And yet, it is, I believe, great I mean, I ve read later London s novels that were over blown, over melodramatic and rather impossible Smoke Bellew is none of those things I [...]

    3. This story brings you the transformation of an innocent kid working for a newspaper company, into a meat eating, full bearded man Christopher Smoke Bellew, a newspaperman, embarks on a journey into the rough Alaskan wilderness, only planning to help out his relatives and be present for a few weeks But this challenge brings in a new prospective of life, instead of writing about these times, live them He chooses to stay in the Klondike himself and continue on this new found way of life Life, death [...]

    4. A real book about what is man made of Only Jack London s characters are capable to make you want to trade your life for theirs I will always love this book.

    5. Reader beware those who open this tale will find their days outside the novel filled with dreams of the Yukon, sled racing, and gold I promise, you will never look at an egg the same again.Christopher Kit Bellew is a yuppy, lazy, jocular youth who inherited his wealth through a father of hard work and discipline Pining away his days bored and restless in the city he is given the opportunity to help his cousins and uncle trek their way into the Alaskan Gold Rush Each man requires a literal ton of [...]

    6. I liked the meta idea of this book On the beginning we see Christopher Bellew, who agreed to write a series of short stories for the newspaper in San Francisco This job is boring, exhausting, and also unpaid So our hero decides to run away to the North And since Smoke Bellew is, in fact, a set of short stories, it appears that instead of writing, Chris Smoke decided to live them.That part I liked It was also educational to read about customs and conditions of Klondike back than Some of the stori [...]

    7. This book is timeless especially if you have spent much time in Alaska It was easy for me to relate with the characters.l

    8. Christopher Bellew seems to have everything, But, hen Klondike fever strikes Christopher sees a chance to break away and starts on an incredible journey Love this author and the great landscapes he takes readers through.

    9. This is the final book in my collection of Jack London short stories that I ve been reading over the past 3 or 4 years I also read Call of the Wild but couldn t get through White Fang, which I remember as a favorite from my early teens which is the age of the intended audience These stores are wilderness classics, but also contain deep insights into what motivates people, mostly men, to live and struggle in harsh but pristine conditions It s been very satisfying to read the Jack London corpus, I [...]

    10. Jack London won me over again with this amusing book of adventures in Klondike during the Golden Rush The impressions of London s life of a gold miner in the North are here assigned to a fellow called Kit Smoke Bellew, whose family excursion to northern wilderness made him grow some respect for living closer to nature, for which reason he decides to stay there and explore the true non urban life, nature and himself Smoke Bellew is a ballad to the brave rebels exploring their limits and stamina, [...]

    11. Jack London is one of the great writers of the pre WWI generation His output was astounding, with over 400 non fiction works alone But, he is most famous for his adventure tales, many of which were set in the Klondike during the Gold Rush of 98 Classic short stories include Call of the Wild , To Build a Fire and In a Far Country Smoke Bellew is one of lesser known novels of that period It is rich and rewarding story telling from a master of the genre Smoke, aka Christopher and Kit, is a reporter [...]

    12. I love Jack London I love Alaska Well, that makes sense being as I am Alaskan I was impressed with the imagery that immediately called to mind my beloved home state With that being said, I should get down to brass tacks.This story starts off with a newspaper writer in San Fransisco just as the Gold Rush to Alaska starts off Our hero, Kit Bellew, is a soft, city boy who decides to travel to the Yukon in search of a real story and an adventure Now, this starts off as a 3 week trip, just to take su [...]

    13. Picked this up mainly because of the Jack London connections to Oakland and because it was a free Kindle download on I m very happy I did.I didn t initially know that it was a collection of short stories rather than a novel, so I thought my free edition was worth about what I paid for it, with lots of missing chapters I forged on, though, and enjoyed it just the same.The main characters are very well developed and entertaining The slang is very believable, at least for someone who has never live [...]

    14. Dies ist eines meiner liebsten Abenteurergeschichten, die ich zur Freude und Abwechslung in drei Sprachen gelesen habe Jack London muss man lassen, dass wenn er ein Land und seine Menschen beschrieb, er es schaffte genau das einzufangen, das diese Zeit und diesen Ort von all den anderen unterschied Bei den Erz hlungen aus der Zeit des Goldrauschs in Alaska h rt man f rmlich den Schnee unter den Schuhen knirschen und die Schlittenhunde bellen Der erfinderische Smoke und sein fr hlicher Kumpel Sho [...]

    15. I bought this book, at my father s suggestion, at a Jr High book fair in the mid 50 s It was one of my favorite books and incidents described were well remembered, though I hadn t seen a copy in 50 years I searched for a copy and bought this one Each of the articles in the book were familiar, but the listing of the stories of Smoke and Shorty is substantially shorter than in my original copy By all means get a copy, but get one with the longest list of stories this is really an assembly of magaz [...]

    16. This book is amazing First time in my life such thing happened I caught myself realizing that I am in my room, on my bed and not in in this case in a snow of Alaska That happened few times while reading this book I read a lot since I was a child I get myself deep in to the book But to actually have my mind drift away to the content of book so much that I catch myself being suprise that I am at home, in my bedat has never happened before Read read and read this book

    17. Superbe, une peinture du Klondike en pleine ru e vers l or 1898 99 Une ode la vie du Wild , comme rite initiatique La mont e de la Chilkoot Pass, la ru e vers la rivi re de la Squaw, la course de traineau d un million de dollars, par un jeune plumitif qui a quitt Frisco et sa boh me litt raire, qui va endurcir sa viande, jusqu ce qu elle devienne filandreuse comme de la corde fouet, cre et tenace comme la morsure d un serpent sonnettes.

    18. Rather than a novel, this book resembles several loosely interconnected short stories with the same main character The descriptions of the freezing, snowy environment of the gold rush, as well as the hardships the characters have to overcome, are excellent, as are some dialogues however, I could not shake the feeling that the overall plot could use some polishing and a stronger direction 75 %

    19. First I found it weird that there is a gap between the stories and I don t know what happened then but I understood that the book is not a whole novel but collection of short stories I didn t know before Knowing that I think the stories are well collected together and it became one of my favorites so far I want to read from Jack London.

    20. I can t say any of my favourite Jack London stories were in this collection, but it is still a good cross section of the sorts of stories he tends to tell about the Klondike Smoke and Shorty are great characters, and the depth of their friendship is enviable.

    21. Seems I rediscovered one my of biggest loves of my childhood And unlike Karl May s works for example, Jack London s stories are still so full of life and amazing with all their details Smoke Bellew has always been a favourite of mine and it was awesome reading it in English for the frst time.

    22. This book is much funnier than any other Jack London that I remember reading I read it while on a trip to Alaska which made it a very fitting and fun if not particularly realistic story about the Yukon gold rush.

    23. You can feel the cold, you can feel your fingers and toes growing numb, you can feel the sharp landscape take the last breath out of you, and what s best you can feel the consequences, too I loved it.

    24. Nors man labai patinka viskas, kas susij su iaure ir al iais, bet i knyg reik jo skaityti vaikyst je Arba Londono toks stilius arba ra vaikams.
