Sintesi dell'editore

In the desolate, frozen northwest of Canada, a lone wolf fights a heroic daily fight for life in the wild. But after he is captured and cruelly abused by men, he becomes a force of pure rage. Only one man sees inside the killer to his intelligence and nobility. But can his kindness touch White Fang?

Not just for my Kids or my Youth

I absolutely love the prose of Jack London. I wonder exactly how many people have died, pulled North to the Wild by the romantic pen of Jack London. I finished a while back (Dietz's version) and was crying as I listened to it with my kids.

I've recently become interested in listening to several classics by different readers. London was one of the first I've done this with, but it worked well so he won't be the last.

John Lee gives a very solid reading of this classic. I think this is probably the superior audio of White Fang. While I like Dietz (and haven't done anything but sampled Thomley), Lee's reading is straight forward and easily managed at hyper-audio speeds (2.5x or faster). The only downside of a narration by Lee, is it is sort of like watching a movie with Kevin Bacon. They guy is everywhere and it is weird to hear his voice in so many places.

Who's the animal: Man or Wolf?

This story is considered a classic for good reasons. Published over a century ago, the story remains timeless. It also offers glimpse into the past, as Jack London's descriptions of northern life, and in particular the life of First Nations people at the time, is fairly accurate from all accounts.

It refreshing to see how a masterful author can handle cruelty and violence without resulting to the usual graphic descriptions of today. Make no mistake, this is a story about a wolf cub at a time when society was much less predisposed to kindness. It stands to reason this story doesn't follow a Disney like pattern.

What the story does so well, however, is to illustrate the cruelty of certain men. This cruelty stands side by side in comparison to the supposed cruelty of the wolf, which is judged negatively at every turn by "civilized man". It does provide good food for thought.

John Lee did an excellent job. Even if you've read the book, it's worth listening to the audio book just for the performance. If you're not familiar with the story, then I can only mention that this really is a "must read" novel. You won't be disappointed.

Top-rate story and storytelling

Would you consider the audio edition of White Fang to be better than the print version?

I would consider it so, yes. the narrator really brings the words to life, in a way I didn't think possible.

What other book might you compare White Fang to and why?

The Call of the Wild. the stories, and the point of view from which they are told, is unique and fascinating.

Which scene was your favorite?

The first meeting between White Fang and the "Love Master" - no spoilers here, though

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did. This is the first novel as a child that I ever read, and listening to it tok me back to third grade, and the wonder I felt as I realized that a story - jut words, mind you, no pictures - could, really could, take me to another place.

Any additional comments?

This is a must-have in every library, and every Audible collection.

Great reading

This is one of my favorite books of all time. I own a few audio versions and this is by far the best. Very well done.

Great Story - Wish it were longer

This book was a complete pleasure. The prose are delicious and the story, characters, and imagery are captivating. I was only disappointed it was not longer...much longer. This is a true classic and a great read for young or old. A nice length for a vacation car trip to share with the family.

The narration is clear and full of expression that enhances the story.

Good book

What did you love best about White Fang?

Jack London has a knack for capturing the wild in words and describing the perspective of a wild animal, like White Fang. White Fang's progression from wild pup to domesticated, but ferocious wolf and beyond made for a great story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

White Fang, of course! He's a wolf.

Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

John Lee's voice sometimes sort of hypnotized me and made me relax (might also be due to the very detailed writing of Jack London), so I would sort of doze of and miss some part of the story. John Lee's narration of the story and all the characters was by no means bad, though, just not the best.

Any additional comments?

White Fang by Jack London may not be the most riveting story I've read, but it was a good book and I enjoyed it.

More Than a Book About a Dog

I like how this book explores the balance between nature and nurture, and the effect it has on the actions of an animal (or person if you are looking at the text metaphorically). I love the idea being explored that only the nature of an individual is fixed and that even so the environment one is in and the treatment and opportunities one receives affect behavior to either live up to that nature or act contrary to it. I also enjoyed exploring the nature of relationships and the role they play in shaping behavior. I feel these are topics often tackled in literature but to varying degrees of success. I felt that exploring it through the eyes of a dog somehow made it easier to relate. The only issue I had with the book was the pacing. At times I felt like it was dragging and I had to push myself through, but then it would promptly become enthralling and I couldn't put it down.

Appreciated the View Point Character

This novel was interesting since I had just finished listening to Ian Mortimer's "Time Travelers Guide" historical series. In those books, Mortimer dedicates a few passages to describing how animals were regarded in medieval England, Elizabethan England and the Restoration. In short - not well.

While I was listening to this Jack London tale about the life of a wolf/dog, I kept thinking how extraordinary that a few centuries later such a book was even written with such an empathy toward an animal, let alone a wolf. Perhaps London was using the character of White Fang as a lens through which to see how human beings act toward one another and other animals, and perhaps how our cruelty and dominance of nature is futile, unless we accept that we are, in fact, a part of it.
