As I read Buck's story I admired his never ending motivation to survive. Yet, I hated the brutality in the story and winced a fair few times at the tearing flesh and descriptions of death and injury. Some of the human characters are vile and callous. The sled dogs work hard for little reward or comfort. Buck made me feel grateful for my privileged life. He also showed me that the world is a tough place and you have got to fight to survive.
It's a short story and takes a couple of hours to read.
The Author Jack London wrote numerous other works throughout his life. I will definitely read more of his work. I will never forget the story of Buck. It's made a lasting impression.
I found The Call of the Wild immensely powerful and involving. By the end of it I actually felt bloodied and battered, as though I'd come through a formative experience. The Call of the Wild deserves its status as one of the best novels ever written.
