The Call of the Wild by Jack London Book Summary

Living the lazy and luxurious life of a pet, Buck could not know that gold was discovered in Alaska, nor that this discovery would forever change his life. Stolen from his master and sold for a quick profit, Buck is shipped up to the Arctic to live among the hardened ranks of the sled dogs, led by the short-tempered and violent alpha Spitz. Fighting to survive against an unforgiving climate and pack rivalries, Buck slowly leaves his domesticated life behind and embraces the wild.

The Call of the Wild (Jack London) Book Reviews

Really confusingI'm reading this for school and this is really confusing.Score: 1/5

Overlooked, but a classic nonetheless!A timeless classic that tells, without a flit of exaggeration, of the power of a dog's instinct, it's closeness to rational thought, and the depth of their feelings..Score: 5/5

GreatVery good book. Sad that one dog had to go through all this, still a very good read.Score: 5/5

Call of the wildThis was a pretty dang good book I must say. The authors use of words was grand. The only part I don't really much care for was how lots of it took place in Canada. I'm an American not a Canadian man..Score: 3/5

Amazing bookThis book is amazing. It has so many details and I cannot think of anything to add. However, it probably isn’t a good idea to read if you don’t really like death, blood, and savageness. But otherwise I reccomend you read it!.Score: 5/5

I read this book in schoolThe book can be a bit confusing for younger readers who can't really understand what is happening but I really enjoyed it. You have to have a little history and dog/wolf understanding to fully understand the book which is why it's a book used for school by the way. Anyway I'm glad we read it this book is not like normal school books it's very entertaining..Score: 5/5

AMAZINGThis book is the best book that I have read so far in school. I would recommend this book to anyone in the 7th grade or higher because on the intense vocabulary words and use of higher context and difficult symbolism. As an animal person, I thought this book was sad, happy, scary, and about any other adjective you can think of, this book has it because of the way the animals are treated and described. I truly hope more people will consider in reading this classic!.Score: 5/5

Good bookIt is a great read, great for wasting your time. It is still a Greta book. It is rather sad at the end. I would recommend this book to teens that enjoyed "Where the Red Fern Grows" and/or "Old Yeller." I also recommend "White Fang.".Score: 5/5

Oldie but a goodie!My dad had this book as a child, I always wanted to read it but. Ever took the time. When I saw it was free I had to read it. Boy I never expected it to be so good. Very well written, could be read by a younger reader too. I just can't get over how good it was..Score: 5/5

Overly discriptive, poorly written.This book doesn’t know what it wants to be. On one hand, it’s lighthearted and enjoyable to read, but on the other hand, the book never leads to a resolution. Instead, it’s filled with countless adjectives and random missplaced words. Do not read. 0/10..Score: 1/5

MediocreThe Call of the Wild is a low quality and unentertaining piece of literature. I truly and deeply regret spending four hours of my life reading this. The only parts that were relatively decent were the descriptions of the call from the forest and Buck’s connection with John. Now, I do have to say, this book brought me to tears on multiple occasions. However, not for the emotion and brilliance of the writing, but because every page was so dreadful, it was physically painful to read. I kept hoping that the next chapter would bring something better, but this was a slap in the face. Though it is original to tell a story from the point of view of a dog, concepts in the books were unnecessarily repeated, just bringing me to a place of deeper, utter boredom. I am completely honest when I say I would’ve rather banged by head against a wall than read this book. Well, I mean, every chapter break I was pretty much already doing this. My advice to you, is that if your reading this for fun, you might as well stop right here as you won’t find fun in this embarrassment of a novel. And if your reading this for school, do yourself a favor and get Cliff Notes, an audiobook, and some antidepressants, because I can assure you, you’ll need it. Good luck..Score: 1/5

Hail, Buck, King of Wolves!This book left me speechless, and quite literally. The writing, plot, and characters made for a rich story. I think the pinnacle of the story was Buck's evolution from simple house dog, to a dog, feared by the natives. But would be a glorious sight, a King of Wolves..Score: 5/5

Great book - some strange partsThis was, overall, a great book. I liked how descriptive it was about Buck, the main character’s point of view. I don’t often see that in books. However, it was quite gory and violent, so I wouldn’t recommend it to people who feel unease at that subject. If you don’t mind that sort of thing and like to read about animals dominating, I would tell you to read this. Note- It might be better to read this if you are over 12. It has some strange wording that’s weird to read about..Score: 4/5

Great!This book was a little boring in the middle, but the beginning and end were great! It keeps you on your toes. The ending is a little sad, and the main character gets stolen (A dog) so that was a little sad too. But overall, a great book!.Score: 4/5
