Description-

  • Jack London’s The Call of the Wild was written in 1903, but Buck’s gripping adventure makes for a thrilling listen on audio more than 100 years after it was first published.
                This gripping story follows the adventures of the loyal dog Buck, who is stolen from his comfortable family home and forced into the harsh life of an Alaskan sled dog. Passed from master to master, Buck embarks on an extraordinary journey that ends with his becoming the legendary leader of a wolf pack.
                “To this day Jack London is the most widely read American writer in the world,” E. L. Doctorow wrote in The New York Times Book Review. Generally considered to be London’s greatest achievement, The Call of the Wild brought him international acclaim when it was published. His story of the dog Buck, who learns to survive in the bleak Yukon wilderness, is viewed by many as his symbolic autobiography. “No other popular writer of his time did any better writing than you will find in The Call of the Wild,” said H. L. Mencken.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Jack London's classic tale of the heroic dog Buck captures a bygone era in American history. Sold as a sled dog during the Alaskan Gold Rush, Buck finds himself in an adventure that reconnects him to nature and his wild roots. Actor Jeff Daniels leads the listener through Buck's journey with a friendly and familiar voice. London's prose is not overly dramatic, and Daniels does not try to make it so. His reading style is somewhat removed, but he engages the listener through his steadiness of tone and pace. While there's little dialogue in the story, when it appears, Daniels captures the essence of the characters. Listeners of all ages will enjoy this cherished story and thoughtful narration. D.M.W.

  • AudioFile Magazine Great short stories are tailor-made for audiobooks. They transport you to another time and place, and bring you back in a reasonable amount of time. Such is the case with this classic tale of Buck, the indomitable dog, during the Yukon Gold Rush of 1897-98. Narrator Michael Kramer is a perfect match for London's words in both style and intonation His voice is compact, intense, cool, and utterly absorbing, and he sets a comfortable pace. Sometimes his delivery is choppy, almost abrupt, but that's an advantage in a story that takes place in the wilderness because it keeps us slightly off balance and involved. Kramer is also adept at character accents, from a West Indies dialect to a Western snarl. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
