by | Read by Theodore Bikel

Classics • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

The Durkin Hayes rendition of The Call of the Wild is one of no fewer than 18 audio versions of this work listed in Words on Cassette. The producers wisely chose an accomplished actor, Theodore Bikel, to narrate, and the production clearly benefits from his craftsmanship. But Bikel's speech has an overriding Eastern European accent which, while very appealing, is unsuited to the author's narrative voice. Furthermore, Durkin Hayes has abridged London's tightly constructed novella to fit its two-cassette program. S.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
