I don't remember this story being this brutal when I first read it as a kid, though that might be because I was extremely ecstatic, as all kids were, to be reading a story in which the main character is a dog. My fetus brain was like: YAAY, DOGGO GO BRRRRRRR!!!
Now that I have read it again, I am happy to report that I might have found a reason why this book is a classic. As a kid, you read this story for a dog. Then, you grow up.

Oh Buck! You and your friends went through so much.

A little emotional about this book. Jack London threw a lot at me. Buck, stolen and forced to work. Treated cruelly, starved, worked to the bone. I just can't. I wanted to grab a club and hit those men until they couldn't get up.

Along comes a bright, shiny savior. John Thornton is a good man, and he does his best for Buck. Too many spoilers lie ahead, so I will leave you with this advice. Read this when you want to have all the feels, and be ready for anger, sadness, and triumph. A good story with an unexpected ending. 3 stars. Hey, it's a classic for a reason. Read it, but have something ready afterwards that will make you happy, like chocolate and an episode of Parks & Rec.
