It was kind of sad, but altogether a good read.

Jack London is an absolutely incredible writer and his unique views on stories have rightly earned him the popularity he has amongst classic literature. Writing through the eyes of an animal to reveal applicable life morals does more than just make for a good story, it makes those stories memorable and stand out among others. As the synopsis says, Call of the Wild is Jack London's most popular work and the reasons for that are because it is different and its just as intense as any other adventure novel. Just because this book is about a dog does not make it a lighthearted read, its actually quite the contrary. The setting is very harsh, being in the wilds of Alaska where its cold and dark, and the other characters are mean and gruff. Its a book about survival, and in order for dogs to survive in these types of environments is often by killing off their competitors for life, and there is a lot of death in this book. There are multiple, detailed, scenes in which the human characters entertain dog fighting, abuse (both verbal and physical), and some mild language. However, the morals found in this book, though not "Christian" by any means, encourage never giving up when the whole world pushes against you and also reveals that sometimes sacrificing your means to live for others are indeed the only way to survive. So overall, this is an intense book, especially for some middle graders, but I give it 4 out of 5 stars and do recommend it for ages 13-15.
