But with a stroke of luck, his dream of escaping it all to live in remote Alaska suddenly came true.

Grieve's Jack London-esque narrative is engaging, but it is undercut by what comes across as the author's irritatingly impotent feelings of guilt for seeking self-actualization away from his family.
