    The Cry of the Wolf was een spannend en mysterieus boek. Ik waande me zo een wilde, Engelse wolf in een ondergesneeuwd bos. Weg met de akelige hunter, go get him Greycub!

    I think everyone has that one book they read as a teenager that got them really into reading. "Cry of the Wolf" was mine. I decided to read it again as I hadn't read it in over 10 years and I still love it. It's a great novella which focuses on the last wolves in England. The wolves don't communicate to each other in words like "Watership Down" but through movement, emotion and scent. There's a magic to it and the wolves precious lives feel more realistic because of it.The story follows the last wolves in England, not quite extinct but almost. Due to a boy (Ben) letting slip to a hunter that there are wolves left in England, the hunter makes it his mission to get them all. The story follows one of the last wolf packs, mainly Greycub, as they try to outmaneuver the hunter. It's a quick story and a good story. I would highly recommend getting it if you get the chance.

    First I thought this book will be boring. But I really liked it. My opinion about wolves changed. In this book they are showed as very smart and independent creatures. I do not want to spoil, so I can just tell that it was very interesting book. I had such feelings reading it... I even cried reading some chapters. Of course it is a book for young teens, children, but and adults can enjoy it. It changed me, I started to love wolves very much after this book. They are beautiful animals and when people kill them- it's really cruel and sad.

    At times this is a hard book to read. The struggle of the wolves and fury at the Hunter will make you want to clutch your belly and howl yourself. That might sound extreme but I think Call of the Wild, Watership Down, even Duncton fans would understand. I'd urge you to read it though. There's a harsh magic to it: the terse, plain writing holds a hidden world under its surface. The book has a lot of tension and pace and its short. An intense afternoon with a wolf at your side :)

    This is a beautiful, moving and shocking book. It's about the last wolves in England, and the man who is determined to have the private glory of wiping them out; it's also about the boy who betrays them but also saves them. It's fairly clear whose side the writer is on, when the wolves have names and the human hunting them is called The Hunter. It's short, it's unflinching, it's very focussed, and several of the sudden brutal incidents made me gasp in surprise. A very wellwritten and memorable book. Not for small children who like fluffy wolf cubs!

    Stunning. A must read, 'Cry...' is twist and turn all the way, with surprises, shock and real emotion throughout. The Hunter is a rarity, an evil human you loathe completely, but at the same time can understand and see his motivational logic. The wolves are the star here, no mistake, and their world is revealed in clear, powerful passages that give such an insight into their lives. Read this: it's not a kid book or a Young Adult novel, just a damned fine read.

    Oh, I am so freaking tired… But okay, this is not some kind of diary blog, I need to write a review.So here it is.I loved it. It’s so strange because it’s the first book by Burgess I really liked. Usually, all of his books feel too weird. For example, Sara’s Face. And, he is one of those writers who write about, well, drugs, obviously (*cough* Heroin *cough*) or problematic teens. That’s definitely not what I want or like to read. But The Cry of the Wolf seemed to be something different than usual Melvin Burgess works. Maybe because it’s the first thing he had ever published.You may have noticed that synopsis isn’t very long and informative. But the thing is that synopsis practically reveals everything what happens in the book. There is a hunter, who wants to kill the last wolf of south England, and a pack of wolves, trying to survive at any cost.The interesting part is that wolves in this book are described as humans, as real personalities with names. They are smart, they know what is honour and pride.For me, as the biggest fighter for animal rights, it was an amazing thing about this book. I think it has some power to change some stupid people opinion about animals. As my teacher once said, animals don’t actually feel. Well, she might need to consider her statement because they do. Maybe they don’t build bridges and skyscrapers, but it doesn’t make them less capable of loving, feeling sadness or grieving. Okay, now back to the book.Yes, it is very short. But even if it’s so short, it definitely won’t leave your mind for a long time. While reading it, you always expect something like another Lassie or Hachiko story, but it’s not a story about a friendship between human and a dog. It’s a story about the hunter and his victim. And how everything can quickly turn around. First you hunt, then they hunt you.Also, it is one of those books you should read by yourself than hear thousand times about it. So what are you waiting for?Lots of love,Marta

    I was forced to read this at school. Me being a 12 year old teen my first thought was *groan* "how stupid is this. Who reads?" Yes, I was that person. Nonetheless, if I wanted to pass I had to read this novel. At first I was reluctant. When I realised that everyone in my class was halfway through the novel, I realised I finally had to start. I don't regret it. This was a great read. It really makes you think about these poor wolves, and other animals out there. It's a great book. You won't regret it.

    I first read this book when I was quite young in school from its library. It made such an impression on me that when I could gather enough money together I was determined to have my own copy. It's a very moving and sad story, and anyone with a love of wolves (as I do) will feel an immense hate toward the hunter in this story. It's a short story, (making the story longer I feel might have spoiled it) but I deeply enjoyed it.

    If what you are looking for is a read that will crush your soul and ruin your week, then this is the book for you! Experience a deep hatred for mankind and fight back the tears as you experience this short novel. There is no happy ending. There is nothing good in this world. Only death and hatred. In summary a good read but an awfully sad one.

    When I was at school, I remember Melvin Burgess coming along to promote his new book (I think it was Junk). He was absolutely charming and everyone became rather obsessed with his work. This was the first book by him that I read.

    The Hunter wants to kill the last wolves in England – being first isn’t good because other people can duplicate your feat but being last means no one can outdo you. But Greycub not only has the instincts of a wolf – he also knows humans.

    I like the ending, how Greycub got that bastard Hunter without killing personally, because wolves aren't supposed to kill humans. Even if they're bastards like Hunter. But it's sad that there's only one wolf left in all England. He won't be able to continue the line.
