I just finished reading Call of the Wild by Jack London. I had been wanting to read something by Jack London for a while because, of course, he is regarded as a great writer, but also because he was a radical leftist.
Call of the Wild was a somewhat enjoyable read. I’ve definitely read better, though. The story seems a bit out there.
I read Call of the Wild on my iPhone using the Stanza app. I got the book for free from Project Gutenberg because this book is in the public domain, along with a great deal of other books. The app was a breeze to use: just tap left or right to flip pages. And when you start up the app it remembers which book you were on and which page on that book.
I am going to at least start reading American Power and the New Mandarins by Noam Chomsky next. It was his first political book.
