    Men are so cruel The way they break animals is deplorable they use them, exploit them and abuse them all in the name of sport, entertainment and human convenience Men are cruel They try to conquer rather than living in a world of mutual respect it s man who has lost his nature, and he imposes such a thing on everything he comes across, but the animals will fight backWith a roar that was almost lion like in its ferocity, he again hurled himself at the man Buck is kidnapped dognapped...

    I defy anyone man, woman or child not to like The Call of the Wild It s the most exciting adventure, the most moving love story, the deepest meditation on a creature and its place in nature If you aren t cheering for Buck the dog by the end of this you re either hard hearted or a cat lover.

    I remembered discovering either Call of the Wild or Whitefang when I was a boy and really liking it, so on finding this on our shelves I read it to Celyn 12 but too disabled to read.I found myself translating on the hoof as the book was written in 1903 and much of the language is quite Dickensian Celyn s vocabulary, whilst largely unknown to me, must be derived from books and conversations, and neither of those would have supplied her with many of the words in Call of the Wild.I found myself I remembered discovering either Call of the Wild or Whitefang when I was a boy and really liking it, so on finding this on our shelves I read it to Celyn 12 but too disabled to read.I found myself translating on the hoof as the book was written in 1903 and much of the language is quite Dickensian Celyn s vocabulary, whilst largely unknown to me, must be derived from books and conversations, and neither of those would have supplied her with many of the words in Call of the Wild.I found myself having to findcomprehensible substitutions for sentences in the style of His primeval perspicuity endured the ardor of robust toil as I read them I also took time to precis what had happened every few pages.The book wasn t ...

    Novels narrated from a dog s point of view are rarities I distinctly remember reading two, Fluke by the late great James Herbert, and Cujo by Stephen King only partly from the dog s POV If the author s talent is up to the task, it is quite a nice change in perspective though I am sure you wouldn t want to read fiction from a canine perspective all the time unless you are a dog, even actual dogs don t want to do that, I have asked a few.Set in the Yukon during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, Novels narrated from a dog s point of view are rarities I distinctly remember reading two, Fluke by the late great James Herbert, and Cujo by Stephen King only partly from the dog s POV If the author s talent is up to the task, it is quite a nice change in perspective though I am sure you wouldn t want to read fiction from a canine perspec...
