A story for the ages!

This book was a very fast listen. This is not the typical type of book that I would read. That being said, this was a great listen. The narrator really brought life to the story, it was like I was there watching everything happen. Bill Lord just has the best voice for this type of book.

This is a true adventure book, I wanted to know what was going to happen to Buck. From the first minutes, I got attached to him. There were so many different elements and settings in the story that I was almost always on the edge of my seat. There was always something new going on and never really a dull moment.

The narrator brought a great voice to the story and made it an enjoyable listen. This book is great for a younger audience as well as an older on. I can see this being a story for the ages. I really enjoyed it.
