I would not consider the audio edition better, but it works for me because I just dont have time to sit down and and read a book. But I can listen to an audio book while I drive to work.
Buck, because he was the HERO.
No favorite. It was an awsome performance. He made the characters come to life.
Oh so many, from when buck was being beaten by the man in the red sweater, to when he pulled that slead the 100 yards. and when John Thorten saved his life when he was near death, I loved the way he delt with that man, that ax handle rap on the hand. I felt that. The love that John thorten and Buck shared. I have listen to it two times now, and I will agian..
The opening sentence is a classic, foreshadowing the entire tale. Some anthropomorphism here, but it doesn't destroy a great adventure story, a look into the past, the Gold Rush in Alaska. The relationship between Buck and Thornton reminds us of how close man and dog can be, and the story never flags until the satisfying ending when Buck, too powerful a force to remain in civilization, returns to the wild.
How to survive the basic struggle of a man, but through a dog's eye's. Intense lessons with rugged poetry' done well.
