Publisher's Summary

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
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    An avid reader, I was concerned that audiobooks would be more like 3rd grade reading circle and less like a performance. I was wrong. I only wish I had started sooner!

    "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.

    "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.

    "Amazing"

    Captivating and enjoyable story. I felt the fear and the anger as well as loyalty and love. Beautifully written and narrated. Struggled with one chapter because I really hated what was happening. That being said, glad I pushed through and read the whole story

    "Great book, Young person MUST Read!"

    This is a great story, a must read for modern men and women, especially young people.. we have so lost touch with our basic nature...this will or ought to rekindle it, not for the week heart or those who don't understand our nature..

    "A wolf's life "

    Prepare to cry and laugh listening to this superb rendition of the book.
    The 1990's movie has nothing to do with the book, so don't expect a similar story.

    As with Call of the Wild, John Lee's narration makes you come back for more. Check this version first before going on to any other.
