    "More Brutal Than I Remembered"

    I chose this book as a 'classic' to add to my library. It is hard to read about any animal being abused and I had a hard time getting through it because of that.
    It's not the kind of book that will leave you with a good feeling or even a greater understanding - it's just a story that focuses on the brutality of humans and animals.
    I understand that some may find the story being told entirely through Buck's (the dog) perspective interesting but that did not make it worth the sadness I was left with at the end.

    "I'd Forgotten How Good This Is"

    I read this book back in high school in the early 60's. The narrator bothered me at first but he got better as the book progressed. Dog and animal lover that I am, parts of it made me cry, literally. It's an excellent classic book. I'm glad I purchased it and may read it again sometime. It's excellent but some things hard to listen to for those of us who never in a thousand years mistreat a dog. If you are a dog or animal lover, buy the book. I never read books that are only 3+ hours long but this is an exception to that. Well done. I will probably read it again sometime. You won't be sorry you bought it.This book is a long time classic and worth reading.

    "back ground noise in audio"

    Halfway through the audio book I could hear a sound in the back ground like a CD spinning in the machine.

    Books play an important role in my life, as well as web and other text media. I also write my reader's blog in Czech at Coctu.cz

    "Poor book"

    Outdated and poor storytelling. Waste of time. Dead classic. Don't read this, rather choose something else.
