Some excerpts of reviews from the time of its original publication:
"A cruel and brutal story in which the sea descriptions are unusually good."
"We have discovered a new Jack London, who has discarded the bold brushstrokes of his earlier days and has adopted a mosaic method, carefully fitting bit by bit with infinite slowness and infinite precision, but in the end making a picture just the same."
"Never before with all his fertility of invention and fluency of speech has Mr. London let himself go so unrestrainedly as in 'The mutiny of the Elsinore.'"
"As a mere tale of adventure, a stirring account of a voyage round the Horn, Jack London's book is entirely satisfying."
"A perfectly corking pot-boiler. it is a potboiler by virtue of the exceeding purple of its purple patches, the sop to the sentimental of its love episode, and its general air of having been put together while you wait. it is perfectly corking inasmuch as it has the real wildness and savor of the sea in it, the thrill of adventure and danger and conquest, and the immortal truth that if George Moore could wind-jam around the Horn just one voyage he would be twice the writer."
"An exciting, excessively brutal tale."
"If this is not Mr. London's biggest book he has certainly done nothing better. it is dignified, calm and glitters in its vividness. He avoids none of the brutality in the situation and under the circumstances practically justifies the forceful type of the superman."
