(P)2007 Listen and Live Audio, Inc.
This is a pretty straightforward story about a man trying to survive in the bitter cold of the North. It's well-written and well-told, but otherwise unremarkable. It's difficult for me to see why it's one of Jack London's best-known stories when he has so much other great work out there.
This is such a well-regarded story and it's offered so cheaply that I found it hard to pass up. The audio is fine and the reader does a fair job, though I sometimes felt the tension in his voice was a bit forced. I think the story could have benefitted from a somewhat graver, perhaps gruffer, voice. But that's nitpicking really.
I might actually prefer to read the paper version on its own, but for a couple of bucks there is nothing to lose here. It's a tense outdoor survival story and I certainly feel like I got my money's worth!
