    1. “The trouble with him was that he was without imagination. He was quick and alert in the things of life, but only in the things, and not in the significances. Fifty degrees below zero meant eighty-odd degrees of frost. Such fact impressed him as being cold and uncomfortable, and that was all. It did not lead him to meditate upon his frailty as a creature of temperature, and upon man's frailty in general, able only to live within certain narrow limits of heat and cold; and from there on it did [...]


    2. Well, despite the oppressive heat and humidity in western New York yesterday, this little story by Jack London managed to give me the chills! London is a master at recreating the sights, sounds and feelings of the harsh elements of the north. I seriously got up and made a cup of hot coffee in the late afternoon while reading about a man's treacherous trek along the Yukon trail. With temperatures plummeting to seventy-five degrees below zero, the solitary man traipses along with just one dog as c [...]


    3. A most imaginative cover of Jack London's book.WHEN the going gets rough, the tough get going. Man can prove himself to be real tough when the odds are stacked against him. But can man really fight against nature, especially extreme weather?I had read Jack London's "The Call of the Wild" last year and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Today I read his short story "To Build A Fire" and enjoyed myself as much. In the story the protagonist is shown walking across the frozen Yukon towards the old camp at H [...]


    4. Wow! I haven't read this since I was in middle school. It was the next step fromJim Kjelgaard's dog stories. It's an overcast 79 degrees F outside, and I'm cold just reading the storyericanenglishate/fil.fmanliness/2017/0Jim Kjelgaard


    5. It's easy to see how this is considered one of the great short stories in literature. London's ability to describe the setting and the conditions of the Great North is second to none. This story is so descriptive of what can happen to someone ill prepared to deal with severe conditions, like 75 degrees below zero, that it borders on horror, at least for me. Jack London at his best.


    6. Duane and the Stephanie inspired me with their reviews here on .I immediately paid my 99 cents, (Kindle treasure addiction)d downloaded Jack London's short story about building a fire. I was in the mood to read a little John Steinbeck today this short story was perfect. Paul and I are Survivor fans ( the TV show), and every season, there are players who can't start a fire. Paul and I always talk about how 'you'd think", after sooooo many seasons of the show, it's the 'first' thing each player wo [...]


    7. How can one not give this story full 5 stars. When I read this story I did not know who the writer was. I have never ever read such a powerful story.On the surface it is the story of a man who fails to reach the camp and as a consequence freezes to death. Though he is strapping and able-bodied, he is not familiar with the power of cold and what it can do to the frail human body. Too much caution against snow and extremely low temperatures does not pose any real challenge to a masculine man like [...]


    8. To Build a Fire is one of the stories that made me want to be a writer. I remember hearing a radio version of this when I was young, long before I ever read it. My Dad and I were on a camping trip in one of the provincial parks, and he'd brought along a little transistor radio. In the dark of our tent we picked up a radio station that played old radio shows, and that night the story was To Build a Fire. It was wonderful to listen to it in that setting. The old crackly radio hummed, the static mi [...]


    9. This was a pretty good heart-wrenching tragic short story by Jack London about a man trying to survive the harsh Alaskan wilderness in the Yukon during a dangerous cold snap. If you like these adventure type stories, definitely look for this short story to read online and wherever books are sold.


    10. An unnamed man leaves the Yukon Trail and sets out to meet up with friends, but the weather is no good for traveling on foot. He has a husky with him, and the dog knows he shouldn't go out in such weather, but he does anyway. If you ever wondered what it's like to be ill prepared and lost in the middle of winter out in the great Yukon wilderness, this story can give you an idea. (If you also ever wondered what it would be like to have hypothermia while a dog gives you the "told you so" look, thi [...]



    11. 2 stars."The trouble with him was that he was without imagination. He was quick and alert in the things of life, but only in the things, and not in the significances."I wanted to like this book. I almost DNFed it, but didn't because it was just a short story.The story is good, and I liked a bit the writing. My problem with the book is that I felt it too dense, too complex. To Build a Fire is a classic and classics and I don't really get along anymore. I used to like them but stopped reading them [...]


    12. آقای "تد" در مزرعه‌ی درخت سیب كار می‌كرد. "پوپی" و "سم" ـ بچه‌های خانواده‌ی بوت كه صاحب مزرعه بودند ـ دوست داشتند در كارها به تد كمك كنند. یك روز آن‌ها به همراه تد دور چراگاه گوسفندها پرچین می‌كشیدند كه ناگهان متوجه دودی شدند كه از انبار علوفه برمی‌خاست. آن‌ها خیلی سریع به خان [...]


    13. This short story packs a punch. And I say that because when I read it, I had no idea what it was going to be about. It starts off almost boring (at least it was to me) about a man trekking over the snow in very cold weather. Then things start to go very wrong. I think what sticks out for me is it's very visceral. London makes you see and feel the dangers of 70 below weather. And while I was bored in the beginning, that quickly changed to where I was quite concerned. Then there's the sucker punch [...]


    14. We read a lot of short classics in 7th grade and this was one of them. I still remember my teacher making us memorize the 3 types of conflict: man v man, man v nature, and man v himself. Obviously we didn't study Fantasy or SF, hence the omissions of man v monster and man v alien.I remember not liking this book as a 12-year-old, but it's a story that has certainly stuck with me. I associate feelings of desperation with it, which of course is exactly the point. I've said it before: Jack London di [...]


    15. Oh my goodness, I have not felt the cold like this since I watched Dr. Zhivago and wanted to help get the ice out of Omar Shariff's beard. Fantastic descriptions that make you shiver with cold and fear.


    16. What?!Tell me he didn't just stop the story like that. I really can't take books about idiots, I really can't. I do not like it when people think they know better than people who already have experienced what they are going through. If you are planning a trip north in the winter I wouldn't read this first, it's enough to make anyone paranoid. We have a very foolish man who thinks he knows all about the cold, and he is so sure of his own capabilities that he doesn't take a partner with him on a t [...]


    17. In "The Trial" Franz Kafka says men die like dogs.Here, Jack London shows how a man can die worse than a dog.In a snow-covered wilderness such a man trudges alone with his dog, hoping to reach a safe place with the boys somewhere. Quick and alert, they both are, but Mr. London is careful to point out that this man can only repeat to himself that "it is certainly cold" and no further. He has no awareness of his frailty, nor is he capable of leading himself "to the conjectural field of immortality [...]


    18. הסיפור השני, הארוך מבין השניים, היה כל כך עצוב ומייאש שלרגע לא ידעתי איך לדרג את הספר.תיאור של יום אחד במהלכו אדם יוצא בקור מקפיא יחד עם כלבו ללא מלווה אל עבר מחנה שהקימו חבריו. בגירסא הקצרה הוא מצליח להבעיר מדורה ולהפשיר את ידיו ורגליו שקפאו. בגירסא השניה הוא נאבק בטבע ובאחרית [...]


    19. This is an excellent short-story. Lots of thematic substance about naturalism, the fate of man, etc. Oh, and man vs. nature. Definitely. I loved the juxtaposition of the dog's instinct vs. the man's ignorance/inexperience when dealing with the harsh elements. Some may infer an existential/agnostic view of God from this story (we are just subject to the fates/weather). But I don't. I am not familiar with Jack London's beliefs on that stuff, but I really don't know that's the point. Take away less [...]


    20. One of the scariest stories I have ever read. I read it on a cold night before I went to sleep and I was searching for matches all night long. This is a flawless story--excellent descriptions and yet no wasted words. Just brilliant.


    21. Intensely detailed short story, so compact l found it difficult to believe so much could be packed into such a few pages. Jack London was a master story teller and To Build a Fire is a perfect example.


    22. Read online hereOpenin: DAY HAD BROKEN cold and gray, exceedingly cold and gray, when the man turned aside from the main Yukon trail and climbed the high earth-bank, where a dim and little-travelled trail led eastward through the fat spruce timberland. It was a steep bank, and he paused for breath at the top, excusing the act to himself by looking at his watch. It was nine o'clock. There was no sun nor hint of sun, though there was not a cloud in the sky. It was a clear day, and yet there seemed [...]


    23. Jack London’s “To Build a Fire” is a haunting story about the divide between some men’s intelligence and their sometimes buried instincts, otherwise known as common sense. The story opens with “the man” hiking through the absurdly cold Klondike in the dead of winter with little experience, few supplies and only his dog as a companion. He has been warned about travelling alone in such harsh conditions but feels he is intelligent enough to overcome any problem that nature may sling his [...]

    25. Emily Togstad11-1Good Reads“To Build a Fire”“To Build a Fire” is a short story written by Jack London. I've only read a select few of Jack London's books, or stories. This one was not one of my favorites. The story took place on the Yukon trail and near the Henderson creek. The weather ranged from -50 degrees to -107 degrees. It was very cold and dark. It made the story dreary. The main character, the man, was trying to get to the camp to meet the boys. From Henderson creek he was 10 mil [...]


    26. As a naturalism, classic read, To Build a Fire is the depressing story of one man's desperate battle for survival in the frozen north in −75°F weather. Typical of Jack London, this book portrays nature vs. man in the midst of the wilderness. One might enjoy this read if they appreciated other forms of naturalism books. However, I found the book needless and with a terrible ending.
