The Call of the Wild Jack London Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

User reviews about this book

  • It’s ok, but not earth shaking

    Look, this book is pretty good. It’s an easy read, and not to long. Though it’s not really for littler kids. If your child is under eleven, probably refrain from having him/her read the book unless your ok with them reading about dog fights and abuse. I don’t really get all the hate to be honest. It’s good. Though it’s not very thought provoking, and your not gonna wake up a night thinking about it anytime soon. I final verdict as a simple leisure reader; it’s good, 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. : )
  • Overly discriptive, poorly written.

    This book doesn’t know what it wants to be. On one hand, it’s lighthearted and enjoyable to read, but on the other hand, the book never leads to a resolution. Instead, it’s filled with countless adjectives and random missplaced words. Do not read. 0/10.
  • Great book - some strange parts

    This was, overall, a great book. I liked how descriptive it was about Buck, the main character’s point of view. I don’t often see that in books. However, it was quite gory and violent, so I wouldn’t recommend it to people who feel unease at that subject. If you don’t mind that sort of thing and like to read about animals dominating, I would tell you to read this. Note- It might be better to read this if you are over 12. It has some strange wording that’s weird to read about.

    Couldn’t understand the story pointless book way to much death and blood. The good reviews don’t even give proof why it is good I mean you need proof and facts to know how good the book is. In conclusion this book has no point in buying except for your middle school book report. No value, bad buy, bad book.

    This book is kind of brutal, but I think it is good. Not for anyone under thirteen though.

    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.
