Summary

Jack London’s Call of the Wild is a beautiful tale of Buck, a house dog torn from the comforts of hearth and home in sunny California and thrust into the unforgiving wild. Through Buck, London takes us on a journey where the shackles of civilization are left behind, leading us to a simultaneously unknown and familiar past. Forgotten senses are awakened and survival is key. The story awakens in us something primal - the desire to be truly free.

book review due the next day

Would you consider the audio edition of The Call of the Wild to be better than the print version?

absolutely

Who was your favorite character and why?

jack

Have you listened to any of Melanie Haynes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no I have not, but she made it a great read.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

the end. I was so upset about what had happened. I just wished he would have been found from his original owner so he could have all that experience, and still live a good life.

Any additional comments?

this got me the "A" I wanted on my book review of an American author.
