Jack London said about this novel himself, "I have written some novels of adventure in my time, but never, in all of the many of them, have I perpetrated a totality of action equal to what is contained in 'Hearts of Three'." This is an adventure novel where we find the story of the life of two men who are very alike in appearance and hunt for treasure in the South Sea Islands. The plot of the book keeps readers attentive and even a bit strained as the main characters get into many adventures. Though being thrilling and full of events the novel is full of nice moments which add to it the old charm.
