“Everything that is difficult will be worth it in the end”
~Colby Mara

    Everything that is difficult will be worth it in the end. The Call of the Wild by Jack London was a very difficult book for me to read because of all the difficult words throughout the book. Reading The Call of The Wild was really difficult for me, so I had to really read the context around the word closely in order to figure out what the word meant. This means I had to pay very close attention to the word when reading it which was really difficult for me from time to time.

    When I was reading The Call of the Wild I was highlighting every single word I did not know which made it a little more difficult to read, but after the first couple chapters the word cunning popped up at least three times. Every single time I saw that  word I would highlight it, but every time it came up I had no idea what it meant even looking around the word and context. This made it so difficult to read when this word kept showing up and every time it did I had no clue what it meant making it so hard to read. The whole entire book was like this with words I didn’t even know how to pronounce which was frustrating to me. Reading this book was very difficult, hard, and frustrating for me. It was mostly difficult for me because I did not know what was happening in the book. I would read and highlight each chapter but then once finished I had no idea what I just read. Highlighting words I have not seen before made it take a little longer as well because I was reading the book off my tiny phone. But since I finished the book I feel better and more free because I don't have to worry about not being able to answer questions about the book.

    In my opinion I do not think The Call of the Wild is worth reading. I believe this because it's not worth going through all this frustration over a book with very difficult words in it. I would like to read an interesting book that I can follow and talk about in class.
