Publisher Description

Living the lazy and luxurious life of a pet, Buck could not know that gold was discovered in Alaska, nor that this discovery would forever change his life. Stolen from his master and sold for a quick profit, Buck is shipped up to the Arctic to live among the hardened ranks of the sled dogs, led by the short-tempered and violent alpha Spitz. Fighting to survive against an unforgiving climate and pack rivalries, Buck slowly leaves his domesticated life behind and embraces the wild.

It’s ok, but not earth shaking

Look, this book is pretty good. It’s an easy read, and not to long. Though if your planning on having your child read this book, keep in mind some contents of this book are not appropriate some kids. If your child is under twelve, probably refrain from having him/her read the book unless your ok with them reading about dog fights, violent and deeply descriptive fight scenes, (blood, gore, etc.) and death. Even though this book is violent and lack luster, I don’t really get all the hate to be honest. It’s ok. Though it’s not very thought provoking. My final verdict as a simple leisure reader; it’s ok, though more of something you would read for a school assignment, not out of interest. If you want to read the book, please don’t let me stop you. Though I recommend you go watch the movie instead. It’s a lot better, trust me. ; )

The Call of the Wild is a low quality and unentertaining piece of literature. I truly and deeply regret spending four hours of my life reading this. The only parts that were relatively decent were the descriptions of the call from the forest and Buck’s connection with John. Now, I do have to say, this book brought me to tears on multiple occasions. However, not for the emotion and brilliance of the writing, but because every page was so dreadful, it was physically painful to read. I kept hoping that the next chapter would bring something better, but this was a slap in the face. Though it is original to tell a story from the point of view of a dog, concepts in the books were unnecessarily repeated, just bringing me to a place of deeper, utter boredom. I am completely honest when I say I would’ve rather banged by head against a wall than read this book. Well, I mean, every chapter break I was pretty much already doing this. My advice to you, is that if your reading this for fun, you might as well stop right here as you won’t find fun in this embarrassment of a novel. And if your reading this for school, do yourself a favor and get Cliff Notes, an audiobook, and some antidepressants, because I can assure you, you’ll need it. Good luck.
