The Spin Result is …

… Number 13 in the Classics Club Spin.

For me that is The Call of the Wild by Jack London, the story of the dog, Buck and his adventures in the Klondike.

Call of the wild

I am delighted with this choice. That’s not so surprising as I want to read all the books on my Classics Club list, but I’m particularly pleased with this one because I’ve been meaning to read it for years! Both this and White Fang are books that belonged to my mother and I just cannot imagine why I’ve never read either of them before – it seems I need this push from the Spin to get round to it. As The Call of the Wild is so short I’m going to read White Fang as well.

    1. Also, one of my favorite episodes of Northern Exposure (one of my all-time favorite TV shows) is “Three Amigos” (Season 3, episode 16), in which Chris Stevens reads the book aloud while Maurice and Holling go to bury a friend who has passed away. Brilliant convergence of the book with the plot.
