Publisher's Summary

Jack London wrote this celebrated novel in 1903. It's considered one of his best stories and has become one of the world's most popular American classics. The Call of the Wild is the thrilling story of Buck, a domestic dog from California kidnapped and thrust into the harsh, physical world of the Yukon, a land of danger and ferocity, a land of wolves, blizzards, and treacherous frozen rivers that swallow up entire dog teams. Here is where Buck must learn to survive. He must become as wild and vicious as the wilderness that surrounds him...or die!

More Brutal Than I Remembered

I chose this book as a 'classic' to add to my library. It is hard to read about any animal being abused and I had a hard time getting through it because of that.
It's not the kind of book that will leave you with a good feeling or even a greater understanding - it's just a story that focuses on the brutality of humans and animals.
I understand that some may find the story being told entirely through Buck's (the dog) perspective interesting but that did not make it worth the sadness I was left with at the end.

Poor book

Outdated and poor storytelling. Waste of time. Dead classic. Don't read this, rather choose something else.
