THE CALL OF THE WILD

by | Read by Michael Kramer

Classics • 2.9 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

Great short stories are tailor-made for audiobooks. They transport you to another time and place, and bring you back in a reasonable amount of time. Such is the case with this classic tale of Buck, the indomitable dog, during the Yukon Gold Rush of 1897-98. Narrator Michael Kramer is a perfect match for London's words in both style and intonation His voice is compact, intense, cool, and utterly absorbing, and he sets a comfortable pace. Sometimes his delivery is choppy, almost abrupt, but that's an advantage in a story that takes place in the wilderness because it keeps us slightly off balance and involved. Kramer is also adept at character accents, from a West Indies dialect to a Western snarl. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
