THE CALL OF THE WILD

by | Read by William Roberts

Classics • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

In the great tradition of classic animal stories, Jack London's CALL OF THE WILD, read by William Roberts, is a wrenching story. From the peril Buck the sled dog faces in the Arctic to the suffering he endures under brutal masters, listening to his adventure is no tame experience. Roberts has a voice that could have belonged to one of this era's gold panners. He sounds like a grizzled man who would never display overt emotion but who, nonetheless, can tell a captivating yarn. While Roberts doesn’t use great character range, he lets London’s writing—especially the passages about the mysterious, enchanting call of the wild—ring with its startling beauty.
