A stunning wild classic
Overall a good presentation and easy to listen to. This is a short classic which perhaps would have fitted into a young adult genre, had that existed when it was published in the early 1900s.
Buck and John Thornton are both favourites. The dog Buck is a wonderful character and the story written from his perspective is beautiful. Yes harsh at times but the reality of life at that time. Not over the top in its depiction of brutality so suitable for all including devoted dog owners such as myself! John Thornton is a kind man in amongst others who are not. All dog lovers can appreciate the bond between man and beloved pooch.
A good performance by Alan Munro. I had to keep my iPad closer to me whilst listening than usual as the presentation is slightly quieter than others from audible. Only a minor criticism though.
Yes and no! I wanted to savour it! The language is stunning.
Jack London is an author I will explore more. His writing is beautiful. Classic literature at its best and easily understood. Thoroughly recommended.
