Audible Editor Reviews

Jack London wastes no time setting the tone for The God of His Fathers, his collection of rugged short stories set in the Klondike: "On every hand stretched the forest primeval, - the home of noisy comedy and silent tragedy." Iron-willed women, grizzled gamblers, and weather worn tribes of Alaskan Indians populate these stories, which capture the icy essence of the Northern frontier, harsh and seemingly boundless. In his husky dirge, performer John Chatty is forceful and earnest, capturing the driving toughness that underscores London’s entwinement of nature and man - spirit and civilization.

    "From someone who loves London"

    For someone who thoroughly enjoys Jack London, I did not, whatsoever, enjoy this audio book. The narator ruined it completely by speedreading it. He does not give you enough time to take it in and form the characters.
