Book Description

April 2006 1933299193 978-1933299198 Unabridged
The name JACK LONDON (1876–1916) is synonymous with adventure. In his storied life, London found employment as a factory worker, oyster pirate, able-bodied seaman, Klondike Argonaut, candidate for mayor of Oakland, California, Hearst journalist, hobo, and prison inmate. . . all before the publication of his first novel, The Call of the Wild, at the age of 27. Included here are his classic Klondike gold rush survival stories, "Love of Life" and "To Build a Fire," plus the ironically gritty "War." Also included in this collection are London’s quirky tales of vengeance and humor, "That Spot" and "Moon-face." These tales feature some of the most colorful characters ever assembled, both human and animal.

This star-studded recording features David Birney, star of St. Elsewhere and The Adams Chronicles; Arte Johnson of Laugh-In; the legendary William Windom, whose film and TV credits range from To Kill a Mockingbird and Murder, She Wrote; and Efrem Zimbalist Jr., star of the TV series 77 Sunset Strip and The FBI.

Product Description

From AudioFile

The beauty and humor of LondonÕs work come to life through this outstanding collection. Narrators Rudnicki, Zimbalist, Johnson, and Windom deliver the stories in gruff and gravelly voices that embody the kinds of worlds in which LondonÕs characters exist. Birney reads the reflective story ÒWarÓ in a subdued voice. Rudnicki proves chilling in his rendition of ÒTo Build a Fire,Ó his deep baritone voice and somber tone providing an atmosphere resembling the cold, desolate world of the protagonist. Zimbalist, too, shines with his crackling voice, adding depth to the character in the feature story, ÒLove of Life.Ó These dark tales are balanced by LondonÕs more humorous stories ÒMoon-FaceÓ and ÒThat Spot.Ó L.E. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
