Jack London at his best

(5 Sterne)

Internal struggle between love and money. Which will win? Only Jack London can tell a tale so well from both sides without bias.

(5 Sterne)

As good as they come. Inspiring. Very well read.

(5 Sterne)

yet another marvelous story about discovering what's good in life.

Great listening

(5 Sterne)

If you like Jack London then you're in for a treat. Not sure how this novel missed my attention up until now. The reading was quite consistent and overall, very good. I am a novice to audio books so I can't criticize other than to say that it seemed technically savvy and subjectively, a great voice to carry the story. It must be said the entire performance was great given how large the novel.

(2 Sterne)

the book was well read and that certainly added to it. However the story itself is long and tedious. I did not think it was worth the many hours it takes to get through the book. It did not compare to Jack London's best works.

fantastic

(5 Sterne)

Lots of heart in this one, people, and, of course, all the other stuff that makes Jack London great. This was one of my favorites, and that is saying a lot.

Great

(4,5 Sterne)

This is an excellent tale of the Yukon gold rush. Definitely a must listen for anybody who enjoys adventure stories and the call of the wild.
