The Call of the Wild is awesome! Even though it was written in 1903 (about 113 years ago) it is interesting and fast paced. If l had to pick my favorite book, The Call of the Wild would be tied with only one other book. (The other would be Anna Sewell's Black Beauty.) The Call of the Wild accurately portrays the hardships of living in the newly discovered Alaska and the cruelty and ignorance of some people, but also shows the kindness of others. The Call of the Wild is at the top of the list of must read books. Read this book, or you'll miss out on the amazing tale of Buck and his life. This book is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The book is so boring. My mom made me read it. If you are older and likes those books kids hate, then get this. Kids do not get it. My favorite animals are dogs, so at least the book has dogs in it.

Call of the wild book review By: Alex Whisenant The book I read was The Call Of The Wild and the author is Jack London. The title is based on the ending chapter "The Call Of Wild" when Buck and a bunch of his other sled dog buddies howled out into the distance. The setting in the book was in many different places but the main setting was the freezing, harsh, Alaskan like, Yukon Territory in the time of 1867. The protagonist is probably Buck because, he is the main focus in the whole story. The antagonist in the story is, out of all the other means sled dogs in the story, is probably Spitz because, he's the one that usually battles with Buck the most. Yes the characters in the story are believable and interesting. The major conflict in the story is when Buck is stolen out of his hometown to become a sled dog in the Yukon Territory. The rising action in the story was when Buck learns the ways of his new home and new life as a snow dog. The climax in the story is that Buck is now a true snow dog and howls out into the distance, and yes it was believable. Yes the writing in the story was pretty descriptive. There was only one character that developed the most in the story and that is Buck, because Buck in the beginning of the story didn't know if he could get use to the fact of his new life as a sled dog but in the end of the story became a proud and noble sled dog. The author in the perspective of a dog was telling the dialogue in the story. A quote from The Call Of The Wild is " Love, genuine passionate love, was his for the first time." The story means, "Only the strongest and fittest can survive." The message the author was trying to come across was how feelings and how the normal way you act, can change in your surroundings and environment. I kind of liked this book, but if I were to rate it out of five stars I would give it a solid three stars. I would recommend this book to my grandma because she likes classic novels like these.

My 7-year old son and I read this book together. He loved it. He has read many of the books in the Classic Starts series. The books in Classic Starts are perfect to introduce your kids to some of the classics that you may have read years ago. Perfect for the young readers who love books. I love that they did a series of the classics for younger readers to discover --- perfect reading for 7-10 year olds!

The book Call of the Wild, was created for obviously for an older reader. Not only does it have an advanced vocabulary, it has some overly graphic detail for the weak-stomach. The book overall itself is good. From the beginning, you can see that this book is not intended for the sensitive heart. The main character is Buck, a Saint Bernard Mix. He starts from living the high life of great care and attention, onto learning how to be fend for himself, and lastly onto finding the ¿real¿ love from humans. Buck learns that being the strongest can survive. Now, if you were to relate this book to another, you would have to turn your head towards Balto. It¿s almost the same thing, but it¿s been taken down for a child reader. Just look at Call of the Wild as a more ¿hardcore¿ version. This book is definitely recommended to others who enjoy action, love, and dogs.
