This book gave me an understanding of Jack London's character and life choices that I would not have found anywhere as easily. The suicide ending was very annoying to a friend of mine and I agreed then, that a happier ending should result from so much effort, labor and wishes for self-improvement. If the author's choice to go to the South Pacific at the story's close was significant, it probably represents his need to escape a past he preferred then to live without even if only a spiritual or family problem that did not include any law enforcement issue.
