it was ok
Read in December, 2010

This was one of my favorite books as a kid. Reading it was a trip down memory lane that was enjoyable but I found London's style unpleasant. It reminds me of the dreary American Literature realism movement, far to much telling instead of showing, and not enough dialogue for my tastes. Yes I know the main character is a dog. The theme of nature seems a bit too forced but that's more of a reason to get my lazy butt outside and enjoy the fresh air some more.
