My Book Review Book title and author: Call of the Wild by Jack London Title of review: best book ever Number of stars (1 to 5):5 Introduction The “Call of the Wild” is a great book. Jack London’s wrote the book the book to describe the harshness he saw in the Klondike. The book makes you truly wonder about the harshness of the Klondike. With this book anybody can see what the Klondike is like. Description and summary of content I believe this was Jack London’s masterpiece. It truly does so the harshness of the Klondike but it also shows it through the eyes of a dog. The dog named Buck was a Saint Bernard that had a good like at a mansion with plenty of land in San Francisco. The dog was stolen and put with a bunch of dogs and sold as a sled dog. When London wrote about the dog living in San Francisco it was describing the luxurious life people in the lower 48 have. When Buck was stolen and sent to be a sled dog it showed all the things that happened to him. The dog suffered from almost starving to being frozen to death. That represents the harshness. The dog also eventually found a good caring owner. That represents a little bit of the good that can come from the harshness. Evaluation When reading the book you see all the good and the bad of the Klondike. Relating to Buck the good for him was finally getting a good owner, but for London it was finally finding gold. The bad for Buck was the starving and almost freezing, for London It was leaving everything and taking so long to find gold and watching all the harshness of people failing and of the conditions killing people. Conclusion In conclusion this book is a great read. The book is a more serious book, but in the entire best book I have ever read. I would suggest the book to anyone.
