the song of the pack or the call of the wild?

Any additional comments?

I remember reading Jack London's The Sea Wolf several years ago, which I think is his best book. Mr London is very good at describing scenes. This one is from the viewpoint of the dog (Buck). It is well written and a quick listen.

The narrator is very good except he's a little slow for me. I bumped the speed up to 1.5x which worked well and made the book even shorter.

I was a little surprised by the last phrase of the book "...which is the song of the pack.". Seems more fitting to have ended with "...which is the call of the wild." Anyway, it was a good story.

Good book but slow speaking

The Boise is super slow so I had to listen to the whole thing in 1.25x speed but it's an amazing book

Pacy classic

I came to this after listening to a Radio 4 production of London's "The Sea Wolf" and, if I'm honest, because it turned up cheap.

Technically the recording isn't as clean as some others, but this really just adds to the vintage atmosphere.

There's a lot going on, many villains, a few heroes, and a lot of exposition from the dog's point of view.

If you're a dog lover, you'll have your dander up in a few places, but it's no spoiler to say that things will be settled to your satisfaction. As story that has a lot of period detail and vocabulary (obviously) but it doesn't feel dated.
