I would recommend Jack London to anyone who loves reading about the outdoors. Or loves reading about his life. in jack Londons books he usually incorporates his life events in the form of his writing. its a good way to learn more about his life. As in "Demetrios Contos" he writes about his past experiences.
This is one of his first science fiction
Lloyd Inwood and Paul tichlorne have had a rivalry for a while, and Jack London always found himself in the middle of it
Lloyd and Paul were both trying to find "invisibility"
When one of them almost does they end up fighting.
No one ever finds out what the secret is. when they die their experiments die with them
: Lloyd inwood, Jack London, Paul TichLorne
:Their labs at the university
Never trust someone that you dont really know
They are both trying to find invisibility, and study chemistry
:when Lloyd almost finds out, he just forgets one point
Point of View:first person

My thoughts about Jack's Life/ Him overall.
I think Jack had a harder life than usual, he had to move around more than the usual kid, and during his early childhood he had to be raised by an ex-slave because his mother was ill. when he started writing, Jack incorporated many of his life events, like in the stories I just presented. overall, i think jack london worked for his sucess in his writings, and he deserved to be recognized as much as he is.
