Goodreads review • The Call of the Wild

The Call of the WildThe Call of the Wild by Jack London
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If there’s something like the umami of words, London has the recipe for it. Every sentence is fat and dripping with atmosphere, intent and passion. Even though the story is simple, even though you can guess what happens, even though London occasionally doesn’t even bother to let you guess and just tells you straight, it is utterly fulfilling. Joyous.
