This Top Five Classics illustrated edition of Jack
London’s THE CALL OF THE WILD and WHITE FANG includes:

/>• More than 30 illustrations from the original editions of The
Call of the Wild and White Fang by Philip R. Goodwin, Charles
Livingston Bull, and Frank E. Schoonover
• London’s
1908 essay, “The Other Animals,” his response to Teddy
Roosevelt’s accusation of being a “nature-faker” />• A helpful introduction, author bio, and bibliography
Based in large part upon Jack London’s own experiences as
a prospector during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1893, The Call of the
Wild traces the untaming of Buck, a St. Bernard–Scotch shepherd
mix taken from his comfortable home in the Santa Clara Valley to the
frozen wilds of the Yukon. Published in 1903, the book vaulted London to
international fame. Three years later, he wrote White Fang, the story
of a wolf-dog who undergoes the opposite journey from the northern
wilderness to civilization and domestication. Both books would become
synonymous with the author and have rightly remained beloved classics
for over a century.

Serves the material well
John Lee does a good job with some great writing. There is nothing worse than reading a classic, then getting the audio version and hearing a ruinous over-the-top or underwhelming depiction. Lee takes the material and handles it with respect and a capable simplicity. He will probably not bowl you over, but likely won't disappoint, either. Plus a great price for two unabridged classics.

Audiobooks are my favorite mode of bringing books that would otherwise be out ...
Audiobooks are my favorite mode of bringing books that would otherwise be out of the reading range of my inner-city 5th graders. I had a class set of Call of the Wild and purchased the audiobook so that they could read along with the narration. I can also pause the story as it is read, allowing me to explain an unfamiliar context or to ask questions to gauge comprehension.

I am unhappy with the way this audiobook has set its presets. Usually, books on CD are given points in the text that are easy to find as presets - the locations on the CD that allow the listener to advance through the reading to find where they left off. Typically, presets are given at chapter starts and then one or two paragraphs into that chapter. NOT THIS ONE! We listened to a chapter a day and I had to struggle to find the next chapter on the following day. Presets were even WITHIN paragraphs! Very impractical for my purposes (and I imagine anyone else).

Although the narrator paced the book beautifully and read with sufficient emotion to bring the story to life, I will probably not buy another audiobook produced by Blackstone Audio in the future because its obvious to me now that they aren't using the standard method of arranging audio tracks.

But my husband recommended I read " Call of the Wild
I've never been an "animal" book lover. But my husband recommended I read " Call of the Wild." I agreed because it was short. But I ended up LOVING it and I also enjoyed the illustrations throughout. I can't wait to move onto " White Fang" next!!

Wonderful insight into feelings of animals in the wild and in the "care" of men.
This is Jack London - what can I say? If you like animals and enjoy an insight into what their life in the wild is like - and what they may be thinking - and experiencing this is for you. I don't even like dogs and I loved this book. Maybe I should rethink.

Gripping story; beautifully read
Most people know the general story, but this rendition will keep you on the edge of your seat. Great for a road trip; even kids 10+ should enjoy it.

Missing pages??
Horrible print edition of this book. I don't know if it's a printing defect or... intentional? But there are several groups of 30-40 blank pages throughout the book. Haven't started reading it yet, but hopefully I'm not missing half of the story at it's just a weird printing error...

Unfortunately these CDs were defective. I was on vacation so I didn't want to take the chance of getting a replacement so I bought something else.

Dog eat dog
Big, snarling manly tales of life, death, fear and freedom. Jack London's world is one of dog eat dog, literally. Hunt or be hunted. Kill or be killed. Eat or be eaten. It's blood-stirring stuff. Wish I'd read him when I was a fourteen-year-old boy.
