Audiobook Review: The Call of the Wild by Jack London

Title: The Call of the Wild
Author: Jack London
Genre: Classics / Survival / Nature
Publication Date: 1903
Publisher: Varies
Rating: ⭐⭐

“First published in 1903, The Call of the Wild is regarded as Jack London’s masterpiece. Based on London’s experiences as a gold prospector in the Canadian wilderness and his ideas about nature and the struggle for existence, The Call of the Wild is a tale about unbreakable spirit and the fight for survival in the frozen Alaskan Klondike.” (Goodreads)

Sadly, I didn’t like this one as much as White Fang. It is still the same where the book is told from a dog’s perspective. I did like that, but this one just felt less appealing when it came to the action. There is also a really sad moment I was prepared for! I feel like this one was more about survival, not just for the dogs but for the men as well. In White Fang it was about much more. London does have a way with words though and I do enjoy his descriptions.

Since this review is short I will leave you with some interesting facts about Jack London. He was born on my birthday, January 12th! He also had a daughter named Joan which is pretty close to mine, Joanna. Maybe these are only cool facts to me, haha.

Overall, this was okay but still one I didn’t click with. I guess the ending was probably my favorite and felt more like White Fang. The audiobook was narrated well.
