good

by geodes on Nov 22, 2009

Good book, some parts i didnt lke to read because they were sad, fights and deaths. But i loved the main point of the book. Its about a domestic dog that loses its home and has to run trails in the artic, although he lost his comfortable home, he finds literally the "call of the wild' from his ancestors. Makes me wish i could do it.

Great Book!!!

by NaturalDyerInSilver on Sep 20, 2008

I have read this book many times, and each time it is as enthralling, exilerating, and heartbreaking as the first. I highly reccomend it.

Lovely

This book deals with the beauty and brutality of nature. Buck's gradual abandonment of his domestic nature is enthralling and heart breaking. Its a realistic harsh look at survival. The main character is a dog, but Buck manages to be likeable and relateable. I had to read this book alot for school and always enjoyed it each time. This is a great book to read again and again.
