Narrator Pablo Schreiber's pacing, tone, and timbre are spot-on as he delivers this often brutal story. This classic novella centers on the exploits of the enormous dog Buck, who is taken from his Southern California home and ends up in the wilds of the Yukon. Schreiber narrates with exquisite restraint. The harrowing adventures of this iconic animal in the primitive wilds of the Klondike show the transformation of Buck from trusted pet to a cunning and powerful alpha male. The text possesses all the prejudices of its age and is chockablock with stereotypes, canine and human. The super dog that returns to its primordial self becomes a survival-of-the-fittest hero. The narration is ably done and the adventure well served. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
