It's cold, cold, cold!

London, ''To Build a Fire'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"It was seventy-five below zero; it was colder than sixty below, than seventy below. It was seventy-five below zero."

This quote was interesting to me because all throughout this story, he talks about it being so very cold. While, I was reading this short-story, I thought of a moutain climber climbing Mt. Everest. This was the picture that I thought of all throughout the stroy. I could not imagine being out in that kind of cold for such a long period of time. As I was reading, I felt as if I was there, because of the detail that is expressed throughout each passage. Overall, it was a cold story to read...

I agree-
London used details that made you feel sort of cold yourself.
