It's always too soon to write a fair review of a great book when they always keep you thinking. 4 & 5 stars are worth repeat listenings.
Beautifully read, thoughtfully descriptive story of a domesticated dog that goes on to become powerful husky pack leader. His extremely different lifestyles, from one owner to the next.

I was surprised given how cheap this is that this seems to be the best recording of this story. In fact, the narrator does quite a good job, a couple of random unusually pronounced words notwithstanding.
I finally read this because it's on all those lists of the top 100 novels. It certainly wouldn't be on my list, but I ultimately came to see why it's so loved, even if I thought the first half was pretty dull.
