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.

wow, what a picturesque journey

as seen through the eyes of Buck, a magnificent dog. Requires a bit of backtracking, if sometimes you can't take it all in at once. the narration is great!
