Great Adventure Story

The opening sentence is a classic, foreshadowing the entire tale. Some anthropomorphism here, but it doesn't destroy a great adventure story, a look into the past, the Gold Rush in Alaska. The relationship between Buck and Thornton reminds us of how close man and dog can be, and the story never flags until the satisfying ending when Buck, too powerful a force to remain in civilization, returns to the wild.

I couldn't stop listening!

I read a few pages of the paperback book before I gave it to my nine-year-old grandson. When I listened to it on audible realized what an excellent story it was. Maybe a little gory for a young one. Very well read by the narrator.
