Holy shit, this book was fucking awesome.

I thought it was just some nice kid's book about dogs, but it actually had great prose and very well developed themes.

This should be added to all the /lit/ starter kits ASAP.

Fuck off with your dog book shit

Confirmed for not even reading the book.

Great fuckin book. The perspective actually felt like an animal's, and somehow I completely identified with it. Primal as fuck/10
>>
Agreed op, it was a great read. Anyone have any other London recommendations?

I remember reading Smoke Belew (or "Béliou-la-fumée" as it was an old french translation) a decade ago and finding it pretty good.

>The blood-longing became stronger than ever before. He was a killer, a thing that preyed, living on the things that lived, unaided, alone, by virtue of his own strength and prowess, surviving triumphantly in a hostile environment where only the strong survive.

Jack London is pretty awesome. I just wonder how the hell he could be a socialist when he wrote things as awesome and Darwinist as this book. I also read somewhere else that he believed in a "natural aristocracy."

But yeah, Call of the Wild is based. Buck is what I think of when I hear the word "Alpha."

>Natural Aristocracy
Love it. Of course we know who's the King of kings
>>
>>7667982
In The Sea Wolf it's pretty apparent that although he glorifies "the natural man" he sees it as something to be feared and controlled.
>>
>>7667946
How about you try reading the other books he wrote that are fairly similar to that one, as far as I know he has a bunch of of books about being out in the wilderness with snow and dogs

My dad read and enjoyed Sea Wolf when he was younger

>>7667907
White Fang was just as good as Call of the Wild, OP. Also, he has a short story called Son of the Wolf which has a white dude citing Natives under the Northern Lights. London's the shit.

White Fang is based af

The first part of White Fang feels like the prototype for Alien or any other "we're being stalked by inhuman forces" horror.
>>
>>7668444
Trips confirm, added to my reading list.
>>
>>7667907
