The Call of the Wild, by Jack London, is an exciting book, filled with suspense. You?ll love it, if you?re an animal lover!

This is about a sled dog named Buck who was abused by his first owner. His next owner treats him better. Buck has a dream to be lead dog on a sled team. He has many adventures, some not very pleasant.

I liked this book because I'm an animal lover. One part I liked was when Buck became friends with some of the dogs. Also, I liked when he was treated better by his new owner. It was suspenseful when Buck got into a fight with the lead dog, Spitz. It was exciting because he had become strong enough to beat the lead dog and take his place.

I recommend this book to animal lovers and people who enjoy realism in stories.
