Yay! London As Read By Lee!

It doesn't get any better than this!
I admit it: Anything with a dog, cat, heck, ANY animal in it? I'm hooked.
But this book? As read by the extraordinary John Lee is wonderful. I'm sure you've read it already. It's, yes, as brutal, as heartbreaking, as touching as you remember it. It's got to be the most brilliant rendition of a dog's point of view that was ever written (no disrespect to "The Art of Racing in the Rain," but that book can't hold a candle to Buck's story, his pride, his confusion, his amazing will to survive), and you'll spend the three shortest hours of your life immersed in the world that Jack London finely crafted.
Can't help it. The story makes me cry, always makes me wish for more. And John Lee's narration only added to the sense of drama, the overwhelming heartache I felt when the inevitable, "Audible hopes you enjoyed..." Just wanted so much more for the precious Buck.
Brilliant!

John Lee

Browse The Call of The Wild at audio and 39 recordings come up. The story itself is a great story, so beautifully told. It is a little violent for those under ten. Dog fights to near death and animal abuse. It is a good look into life in the North and the importance of dogs. I believe a good dog is still important these days. The icing on the cake has to be John Lee. The book is all narration and John Lee's voice is perfect. I am sure the other recordings are good, but can't see how they can be better than Lee.
