Thoughts: The Call of the Wild isn’t the sort of book that I would normally read; for starters, I don’t tend to enjoy reading books which feature animals as a protagonist. That being said, I did quite enjoy The Call of the Wild.
The Call of the Wild is extremely well written and the language is clear and picturesque. I found it quite easy to read through the pages and enjoy every sentence put down on the page.
The story is an adventure story and I usually love high fantasy adventure stories but I really enjoyed this one. I think the fact that it was from a dogs point of view added something unique so I found it to be a really enjoyable element.
Overall, I quite enjoyed The Call of the Wild. It was something different from what I normally read and it made a nice change of pace.
