I can't believe I've never read this book before now, or anything by Jack London (I'm 34). This was an amazingly insightful, emotional and gorgeously written book. "Love that was feverish and burning, that was adoration, that was madness"....WOW! I've never heard true love so adequately and beautifully expressed. Amazing book.

All of a sudden a dog would die, or someone would fall into a river... The story was also very predictable, until the ending. It ended very suddenly, without as much detial as the chapters beforehand.

    Terrible Edition

    This is a terrible Edition of The Call of the Wild and is a disgrace to Jack London.

    the worst book i have ever read

    This book is horrible! I had to read it as a class project and it was extremely hard to follow. How is this Great American Literature? The whole book seems to revolve around dogs brutally killing other dogs. I hated it, and will not be reading any sequels any time soon. It was the worst book I have ever read.

    Horrible Book.

    I thought this book was boring and just plain bad. I had to read it for school, and I ended up just reading to chapter 2 and then throwing it in my locker. The worst book I've ever read.

    Boring!

    I thought this was the more boring book I have ever read! I had to read it for my English class and I almost fell asleep! It was really stupid!! Maybe I am just not an outdoors type person or something!
