When I began the book, it was boring. But further into the book it turned into a great read! I would definitely recommend this book. I'm not into adventure books, but I love this book! Read this book!

I love this book. I read it when I was in third grade and could not put it down. It's hard for me to like books because I really don't like reading. Five stars... I recomend this book to anyone.

I LOVE THIS BOOK. The Call of the Wild's main theme is survival; Buck, a dog and the protaganist of the story, struggles with man, nature, and other dogs during this entire book. He is taken away from his comforable southland home and moved to the harsh north during the gold rush. Throughout the story he grapples with "The Law of Club and Fang," trying to become a leader and dominant creature; many things suprise him and he learns much. Great book for vocabulary. While reading I learned the word "superfluous."

Very good book, written from the dogs standpoint, I thought it a hard role to take on, but it was easily mastered. A must read for any dog or nature lover, dont let the bad reviews fool you! Plenty of action, very descriptive, and fun. Just read this one, its quick!

The Call of the Wild is a wonderful story and I recommend it to everyone young and old. However, DO NOT get this particular copy. It is difficult to read due to a lot of weird letters and characters inserted throughout. I tried several different free versions and they all have this defect. I finally fouond one for $0.99 which was wonderful. I love free stuff same as the next person, but this isn't worth it.

This book was really amazing. I had tried to read it once before about a year or two ago but i didnt make it past the 2nd or 3rd chapter. This time i couldnt put it down and appreciated the beautil writing. This author has a gift for description and made it easy for me to immerse myself in the story. I could feel, smell, and hear everything Buck eas experiencing throughout this book. It was tough in a couple of spots to read the abuse and pain that the animals experienced in this book. The story well made up for it though. It was a beautiful adventure and an insightful look into the intimate relationship between man and dog and wilderness that lives inside us all.

This book is excellent for readers who like suspense and action. Instead of being a superhero in the city, the story contains a smart dog in the frozen wilderness of Alaska.

Great book. Love Jack London's way of writing from the animal's perspective. Almost as if the dog is the author. Wrenches your heart to know that some people are actually that cruel to animals. B/also proves the point that a dog will react and be faithful to a good master and not to a cruel master. Be kind to a dog and you've got the most faithful friend on earth a man could have.

I enjoyed the story told from the dogs point of view and the harsh realness to it. I did not notice any typographical errors as stated before. Awesome book to read for all ages

Another one of jack london's greatest books the first in the series (second book White Fang) call of the wild is an amazing book written with much skill. It is surly one of the best books I have read and very charming. Call of the Wild is about Buck a dog who lives at a farm though he is not owned he lives freely and comes and goes as he pleases, until one day when he tricked into being sold as a sled dog. Will Buck make it back or will he give in to the call of the wild?
