The Call of the Wild (4ème/Gr.1)

Title: The Call Of The Wild 

Author: Jack London

Genre : Adventure novel

This is the story of Buck. He is a very strong dog.(I’II never know a dog like him).
He lives a happy life in California, with Judge Miller. But one day he is stolen by the gardener and sold to Francois and Perrault. People who are looking for gold in the cold north need dogs to pull sleds. Buck is beaten and travels in a train.
He has to learn to become a sleds dog in Canada. It is very difficult for him. It is very hard for him because he never had to do that in the past. And some dogs are very wild and they are most aggressive. But Buck is strong and he learns fast. Spitz the leader of the dog hates him and wants to kill him.
on his journey Buck is going to learn how to sleep in the snow, he is going to be sold twice to not very nice people and he will be saved by John Thornton. Buck and Thornton are going to love each other and Buck will be happy again.
But Buck also has strange dreams about his ancestors and a strange man.(he has never seen a man like that).He is going to meet wild Yeehat Indians, and meet wolves… What will happen to him? to them?I can’t tell you all the story ! You have to read the book if you want to know the end !... 

Personal opinion:
What I enjoyed about the book :I have really loved when Buck fights with the Huskies, with Spitz and with the Indians. I liked Buck because he is a very good dog and it is an incredible adventure.I would recommend this book to readers who like dog, fights and adventure and also to see the hard life in Canada, in 1978, in the wild. But it is a good story but it is a little sad...  

It was a little difficult because lots of words I didn’t understand.

Rating: 4/5
