(P)1988 by Recorded Books, Inc.
"Muller reads with expression and variety that match the varying moods, feelings, and attitudes of all the characters, dogs included." (Kliatt Magazine)
"It gave us the sense of the cold, the snow, and most of all, the primeval feelings that London described." (The New Yorker)
This was my first listen to a Jack London novel and I was very impressed. If you like great writing, and an entertaining yarn with a bit of depth, you'll take to this in a big way.
As usual, Frank Muller's reading is brilliant. Another classic audiobook from the Recorded Books stable.
While this book is no doubt of great literary value, and while its author should be lauded for his genius - the masterstroke belongs to the narrator. Indeed, Mr. Muller uses the talents of his voice to liberally enable the listener to not only appreciate the intrinsic qualities mentioned, but also to feel convinced that such appreciation would have been lost if one less able had set his voice to the task…
How can you go wrong?
Mediocre audio quality is my only complaint and I probably should only give it 4 stars because of that, but I give it 5 stars anyway for being so good.
Great adventure, impeccably read.
I loved this story about a sea adventure and life and its psychological conflicts.
Jack London’s writing was excellent. The antagonist, Captain Wolf Larson, was the best villain!
I also loved the romance that London included midway through the book between Van Weyden and the poet Maud Brewster.
I agree with those who feel that it was one of Jack London’s best writings. I highly recommend this audible!
Frank Muller’s narration was also masterful.
