In this short and thrilling classic, Patrick Lawlor is called upon to render a dog's point of view in a natural and convincing way. Buck is a 4-year-old shepherd-husky mix who is stolen from his California home and shipped to Alaska during the Gold Rush to join a team of half-frozen sled dogs. Lawlor's matter-of-fact interpretation of Buck's perceptions, experiences, and above all, his helplessness to control his fate successfully stir up as much intimacy and compassion as any human character might. From the first moment, the reader willingly casts disbelief aside and joins hearts with this noble animal. N.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
