    "A "Great American Boy" Story"

    My son and I enjoyed this Audible version of the Call of the Wild very much. The narration was very well done. The story itself is one that captures the mind and heart, but I believe it especially speaks to young men. The progression of Buck's punishing experiences which lead him from being a pampered prince to King of the Wild, feared by men and respected by beasts, is something that appeals to the emerging man in every boy.

    For the sensitive child, this story may want to be "held" until about age 10-11. The abuse of animals and some violent fighting scenes may cause some difficulty for some.

    Any additional comments?

    This is never a book I would have read on my own. But since I have an 11 year old son, I thought he would enjoy it since he loves the show GoldRush and dogs. I think I loved it more than him! Jack London's writing is so beautiful. The narrater had such a great voice too. Listening to it was extremely relaxing. However, it was much more violent and sad than I anticipated. Although, it did not seem to bother my son much. I highly recommend this to everyone even those that normally enjoy chick lit!
