    ""The Call of the Wild" is a spectacular novel in its own right. It is not an overtly Christian book, but there are certainly some underlying themes a teacher could point out if they were so inclined. It is a good book to read without attachment, but attaching religion to the themes of the book work wonderfully as well. It may not be religious enough for some, but you can definitely find some relevance if you so choose. "

    "It's a classic and when I was growing up I read this and it might have been more appropriate for a 6th grader then, but in today's society I think it's "too young" for them, 3rd or 4th grader might enjoy it more. But it is a classic and therefore I personally loved it when I read it and still do."

    "This book has the main character as a half saint bernard half scottish shepherd. It's not a wolf or werewolf, however it does seem close enough to fit the description. This solution is on amazon and is free on kindle which is a big plus. The reviews seem solid as well."

    "The famous short novel provided a unique approach to a time in which America was still in its infant stage. It was a unique era in which the days of expansion was ending and the modern era was still in its early stages. While it was an interesting concept of writing about the experiences of the Klondike Gold Rush, I would have preferred to read about a novel through the eyes of a person though rather than a dog, it would have been a bit more believable if it was through a persons account instead.

    "Very broad topic which makes it easy for the solution to penetrate. It wants a book about animals and this book easily delivers. It's surpisingly free for kindle which is a huge plus, if you dont have a kindle you just need to shell out a hundred bucks so you can get this for free(joke, buy the paperback damn it)"

    "Being an INTJ personality myself I found this book particularly interesting. It's a very well known novel about how our society works and it's told from the perspective of an animal. It's an interesting take on a very popular subject and resonates well with INTJs."

    "The way this book portrayed the abuse and mistreatment of animals sends out a very strong message with its readers about how men turn to their baser instincts and nature when driven by greed."

    "I loved The Call of the Wild when I was a high school student, and have wanted to hear it read aloud while I commute to work. I checked Amazon to see whether there was a free stream of the book to listen to, but no luck. I guess I'll try Librivox.org instead. "

    "Call of the Wild is one of the best books for Android because the story will appeal to people of all ages. Although the language is a bit dated, I found the story appealing and different because it is told from the dog’s point of view. While there may be other books written this way, I think Jack London does it best. The story is quite short, but London's writing transported me to a different place and time and had me wanting to know what was going to happen next. "

    "Not only did I read this as a young kid but I also have it now in an edition for my young children. As they say some stories never get old. I think that this book really got me started with loving animals as I couldn't have any as a child. It took me on the journey with them and made me a happier kid. "

    "It's quite a good book and I recommend it if you are into older classics from the 1900s. How Jack London managed to write a book through the eyes of a dog so well is quite amazing. I don't think anyone has done anything like that as well him."

    "This series reprints traditional "manly" classics that typically feature tales of adventure, hunting, sport, and the like. This one is pretty familiar if you were assigned Jack London in high school or jr. high. And there's a good reason it gets assigned. Great little book and well worth going back to as an adult when you can really appreciate the nuances of the writing."
