    One thought on “The House of Pride and Other Tales of Hawaii by Jack London, Fiction, Action & Adventure”

    1. This was an interesting collection of short stories by author Jack London, of a time mostly gone by in Hawaii Many of these stories dealt with leprosy and the victims of this disease being sent away to Molokai Some of the stories also dealt with class differences, some of which still exist in one form or another in society today All the stories were well written and thought provoking.

    2. So glad that we found this book Great stories of the old days in pre statehood Hawaii Pure Jack London too.

    3. I have only actually read The House of Pride, which is the only book I intended to read from this book, for now I may read of it in the future But I have other stories that I would like to read first.

    4. La casa del orgulloLa verdad es que este relato me pareci bastante normalito Me gustan los relatos, s , pero generalmente me quedo con un vac o gigantesco cuando el relato es bueno y yo solo quiero seguir leyendo Desafortunadamente, con este relato, no sent absolutamente nada Es m s, todo me pareci redundante y no pod a dejar de pensar y a orar la prosa de Jack London en Colmillo Blanco y La llamada de la selva Prefiero, mil veces, a London narrando las aventuras de los animales que las de los h [...]

    5. Having grown up in Hawaii and lived on the Big Island, I loved the beautiful comparisons of the trade winds and the mountain breezes in The Sheriff Of Kona the words transported me to a place I wish I were enjoying today rather than trying to keep warm in snowy weather.As a person recently retired, I think I enjoyed Ah Chun a great deal A brave man who actually did something that many people daydream about Aloha Oe was an interesting story that dealt with very real racial issues that were still [...]

    6. Great stories about Hawaii, whose themes still resonate today House of Pride is one of the saddest tales I ve ever read about brothers Koolau the Leper is an incredible allegory about U.S expansion into Hawaii, as well as a vertiginous story about evading quarantine on Kauai Goodbye, Jack and The Sheriff of Kona read almost like journalistic sketches about the socially blind disease of leprosy, while Aloha Oe is a surprisingly romantic sketch of the blue lagoons of youth polluted by racism Chun [...]

    7. Thoroughly enjoyed this book Starting reading at the tale end of a trip to Hawaii I would probably read it again if I were off to Hawaii The short stories convey the nearly mystical feeling specific to Hawaii that the islands exert on all who visit I had also had a brief conversation with a local about how Hawaii became part of the US just prior to picking the book up I would give it 4.5 starts if I could Maybe 5.

    8. The book contains several short stories that revolve around Hawaii and it s cultural morals, taboos, missionaries, and leprosy All the stories take place near the end of the 19 th and beginning of the 20 th centuries The stories are entertaining, if not a bit predictable, for a short five minute read My version also contained a short autobiography of Jack London.

    9. of course I am biased but the stories about a people who hae been enveloped by American expansionism and the sufferings of the Hawaiian people from missionaries and leprosy are well told by Jack London he is always my favorite author

    10. A natural storytellerJack London Is one of those easy graceful writers who never bores, and he tackles sensitive racial and social themes effortlessly.

    11. These short stories about the conflict between the native Hawaiians and the European settlers vividly capture the struggles of the early 20th century.

    12. Abandoned this book His style is too negative and depressing for me I get engaged and then disappointed in the end I like happy endings.

    13. London is a good storyteller Loved these six stories of a bygone Hawaii The brokenness of our world pervades the stories so that these stories are told in a minor key.

    14. Hard not to love London s writing and his stories really capture old Hawaii There is also a nice autobiographical sketch of his life at the end of the stories.

    15. James Michener must have read these stories, because a lot of the characters in Hawaii seem to be echoes of the characters introduced here The stories are vivid and have a journalistic feel.
