White Fang | [Jack London]

White Fang

White Fang, a wolf born in a litter full of puppies, learned the rules of nature from his mother, Kiche. She taught him about meat, predators, and survival - but not about his greatest and least predictable adversary - man. When the cruel Indian Gray Beaver captures him, White Fang is separated from his mother and forced to fight other camp dogs to survive. But things get even worse when Gray Beaver sells him to the cowardly Beauty Smith, who trains White Fang to hate by destroying other dogs in his pen. As his memories of Kiche and the laws she taught him fade, White Fang becomes little more than a vicious animal, but still yearns for the freedom of his early life.

Audible Editor Reviews

Jack London’s classic is a powerful story of courage and loyalty in the untamed Yukon. The sense of immediacy that comes with oral storytelling makes it a perfect choice for audio. Norman Dietz's narration shows the range of effects that can be achieved through audio. Dietz's smooth, calm voice emphasizes London's underlying themes, making the work more thoughtful and intense. However, the sense of danger and adventure that makes London's literature appealing to a broad audience is lost with Dietz's straight, risk-free style. For adult listeners, Dietz's performance makes White Fang a haunting and multi-dimensional experience. However, for young adults, this rendition is too tame and slow-paced.

    "Pulled into the WILD by romantic pen of London"

    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 and was crying as I listened to it with my kids.

    Norman Dietz did an OK job narrating, but his stretched sonorant vowels kinda drove me nutty after awhile. I didn't have the dedication or endurance to listen to long stretches of Dietz describe the frooooooont and reeeaaaaaar of London's cooooold siiiiiiilent landscaaaaaaaaaaaaaapes.

    Story
    "I love Norman Dietz as a narrator!"
    If you could sum up White Fang in three words, what would they be?

    Real, honest, adventure


    What was one of the most memorable moments of White Fang?

    When the California man stops the dog fight and "buys" White Fang!


    What about Norman Dietz’s performance did you like?

    He is my all time favorite narrator, I search out the books he reads. He is very talented!

    "Classic Story"

    Jack London was a famous author so there should not be any doubt about the contents. Story was great. The audio was easy to listen to and I liked it a lot. There is nothing negative to say about this audio book.
