What is the theme of the story (the message the author is trying to convey)?The themes include love, abuse, and following your instincts. Love is conveyed through the relationship between John Thorton and Buck. Abuse is shown when Buck's owners were dim-witted owners who thought beating the dogs would make them run faster. Finally, Buck followed his instincts after a few weeks of being a sled dog.

Is the plot contrived or realistic? Why?The plot of Call of the Wild is realistic because Buck was just an ordinary dog who had an unfortunate fate. Plus many people would do anything to get to Dawson during the gold rush.
