If you like a survival story, Jack London's "Call of the Wild " is for you! The main character is a dog named Buck. He is good main character because he has thick fur, he is big and strong. In the beginning of the novel, Buck becomes a sled dog and pulls a sled.The book takes place in the Yukon Territories.
I like this book because Jack London uses vocabulary I did not even know existed! One word that came to mind is feigned; it means to pretend. I also like that it is a survival story because it makes me feel excited about what is going to happen next. If you like survival stories packed with brutal characters, in a freezing landscape then you will enjoy this book. Beware, it can be hard to read at times because there is animal cruelty. I recommend this book for people twelve and older.
