Quotation Buck was beaten (he knew that) but he was not broken. He had learnt that a man with a club was stronger then him. Every day he saw more dogs arrive, and each dog was beaten by the fat man. Buck understood that a man with a club must be obeyed, although he did not have to be a friend. Buck byl zbit (ale věděl), že nebyl zlomený. Naučil se, že muž s palicí je silnější než on. Každý den viděl přijíždět více psů a každý pes byl zbit tlustým mužem. Buck pochopil, že muže s palicí musí poslouchat, i když není přítel. (page 6) Reason: I chose this quotation, because we can see as the author of the book describes the situation and feelings of the main character. I think that it is really impressive.
What I did not know before reading the book Usually, the man went in front on snowshoes and he settles the snow for dogs I thought, that the dogs were always in front and people stayed by the sledge.
Characteristics Perrault Leona person friendly French – Canadian Czech fair calm nervous honest know everything know nothing about dogs about dogs quick slow
If I were…, If I were in Perrault instead, I wouldn‘t take a dog, because I was afraid, that the dog will be bad.
Recommendation I read it in one go. The book evocatived emotion in me. I think, that the author narrated the story very realistic and naturalistic. I think, that the book is in some parts of rough. Sometimes it evocatived dread in me. It’s a thin book. It is necessary to have and read this book.
