    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?

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to White Fang the most enjoyable?

    The writing: London's narration renders the cognitive and and emotional processes propelling White Fang through his experience of the wild and captivity relatable—and even endearing—without over-anthropomorphizing the animal protagonist.

    The performance: Lee's intonation and pacing seem to enhance the sense of wonder that pervades the writing. His impersonation of the story's human characters through their spoken dialogue was consistent and diverse, yet reserved and not jarringly campy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I especially enjoyed White Fang's initial exploration beyond the walls of Kiche's den. The tactile description of the cub's introduction to the physical world—everything from gravity and momentum, to water, to the predator-prey dynamic—was imaginative, immersive and, at times, surprising in the novelty of its perspective.
