Review - The Call of the Wild ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ•

Itโ€™s possibly a bit embarrassing how much art, literature, and poetry Iโ€™ve become engaged with because it was feature in a James Bond movie. Well, Iโ€™m sorry, but I finally got into Jack London after one of his quotes was used at the end of No Time To Die:

โ€œThe proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.โ€

Soon after exiting the cinema I jumped on his Wikipedia page, reminding myself that The Call of the Wild was his most famous book, and bought it soon after.

This was December 2021, and I write this review one year later. My memory of reading the book is that by the end I absolutely loved Buck the protoganist dog and came away thinking, and saying to others, โ€œdogs are awesome, arenโ€™t they? Yes, theyโ€™re awesome.โ€

Definitely read this book, and then get an awesome dog. If you have one, get another, or get one for someone else.
