Best book ever! The laws of the wilderness were explained so well, and London did a fantastic job of describing Bucks thoughts. He must of known dogs very well. This book gave me a new respect for dogs and for the wilderness.

I thought this book was going to be extremely boring when our class read it in school, but it wasn't! I absolutely loved the book. When it was coming from Buck's point of view made it all the better. Then the way my teacher was explaining the words, so that we can comprehend them better made it easier for us to understand the book a whole lot better. All I have to say is that Jack London was a fantastic writer, and "Call of the Wild" is the best story ever known to man. :)

This is simply a great story. The words that expressed the feelings of the dogs is simply fantastic. Anyone who understands the dogs' psychology can easily relate to the feelings and events described here.

I read this book with my english class and it really opened my eyes to the question that is behind this adventurous story: Are People really Civilized? In this book, Buck who is a pampered, royal aristocrat, is called to the wild and learns to adapt to the sudden change at hand, while learning to use his insticts of living in the wild. Buck is personified in this story, which means Jack London is showing human qualities through a dog. This book is really great and I recommend reading it. :)

I thought that this book was going to be one of those boring and annoying books that I would be forced to listen to. I was wrong. I actually enjoyed this book! I do think that this book was written in a strange way. When I was reading it, I could barely even understand some parts of the book. Either way, I thought that it was a good book. I give it FOUR STARS!!!!!

Jack London's "Call of the Wild" is a true classic in so much that it's still a part of this society today. However, there are not many dogs that would fit into the same type of situations Buck did and come out to be a hero. If one didn't know Buck was a dog, his heroic action would have made him human. The book is not only about dogs, but about men and really about London himself. A great novel about dogs and a scenic view on the human condition. At the end, even a dog can forgive and forget. This is than some humans can do, or try to do. Buck had feelings that could only be expressed through his actions and the knowledge of this dog, Buck.
