Better than expected

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.

Amazing reading and writing.

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.

Violent!

Children and tenderhearted dog lovers beware. This is not the book for you. It is absolutely fascinating, as told through the dog's eyes, but extremely violent! Mary Sarah Agliotta is a fantastic narrator, and really brings the story to life. Just difficult to listen to some of the content

Dog lovers....this is IT !!!

As a tame but powerful dog...Buck....adapts to the harsh life of the Alaska gold rush, he learns survival lessons that eclipse the civilized life he led before being dog-napped and sold into dog slavery. He learns that life is a Darwinian struggle in the frozen north, and that it takes both strength and cunning to survive.

If you love dogs, you will love this excellent tale of a dog who adapts, survives, and wins the struggle of life in the harsh, frozen, and heartless frozen North....a dog who eventually wins the love of and the love for a man.

The law of club and fang<br />

My girlfriend lives on Third St. in SF close to where Jack London was born. And recently I've taken a big Bay area interest. This audio book was my introduction to Heinold's Saloon's honored apparition. And if if Buck could choose only one narrator to read his story, my money is on this performance.

Narration

In my opinion, I would have found it more enjoyable if narrated by John Lee (who narrated White Fang, by Jack London)-story line, to me, is best with male voice...and John Lee was excellent with the narration of White Fang. Thank you.

An enjoyable reading of a classic tale

Jack London is unparalleled at bringing the wilderness to vibrant life. The brutality, determination and eventual freedom of Buck's change from an adored pet to a wild creature is perfectly depicted.
