Publisher's Summary

The Call of the Wild by Jack London was perhaps his best-selling book. Buck the dog, a St. Bernard Shepherd mix was living a comfortable life in the Santa Clara Valley of California until the demand for dogs of his type in the Klondike encourages the caretaker to steal him and sell him into a life of misery in the far North. his physical strength, and his strength of character allow him to survive the brutal treatment he receives at the hand of man.

The longer he is in the North, the closer he comes to his brother Wolf until the call of the wild transforms him into a wild animal, a Wolf.

Atrocious narrator

The narrator killed any joy I could have gotten from this book. He did not put emphasis in the right place while reading. He read introductory clauses and many other sentence parts as if they were complete sentences....as if they required a full stop. Then the next part of the sentence he read as if it were a new sentence unconnected to what had just been read. That was very distracting and it interfered with understanding the narrative. I have read the book several times and I love it, but this narrator lacks skill in reading to an audience.

Bad narrator

I could not get into this book as the narration was horrendous. I usually try to give narrators a chance but I just couldn't on this one.
