    "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.

    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.

    "truly is a classic"
    What made the experience of listening to White Fang the most enjoyable?

    This audio has white fang and a couple other short stories. Jack London is a great writer, he picks up the story at the perfect spot and end it at the perfect spot.


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

    When Buck first heard the "voices" from deep in the woods and you understood what the book was about. It really touched that spot in you that makes you want to get way and back to nature.


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

    Buck


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    try listening to it at 1.5x the speed, I think it adds to the performance, it makes it more suspenseful and puts more an urge or eagerness in the characters to fulfill their destiny.

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

    This book had lots of action to keep a reading engaged throughout the whole story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Of course - the ending. To avoid any type of spoiler, it's just important to read through the end.

    "Beautifully written allegory"

    Brilliant book on resilience in the face of exceptional tragedy, pain and cruelty. London's writing is so vivid and detailed that it far exceeds any photo or movie. The imagery envelops the reader so that you're transported to the location. The anthropomorphism gives insight into these great creatures. Yet it also reveals the genius that London is. For, in so doing, London creates a a stunning allegory into mankind.

    For all of life's cruelty and indifference, there exists an indomitable and indefatigable resilience and clinging to life. Through adversity comes wisdom and majestic grade. However the path to transformation is through unconditional love. A love that is not pithy and indulgent but one of patience and tempered restraint. A love that corrects and disciplines, yet always looks at the bigger picture.

    It's a very beautiful book. Especially if you are an animal lover like myself. The cruelest of the turn of the 20th century Klondike seekers is still among us- they always will be. The machismo, bravado boasters who, themselves, are more animals than men. Nothing has changed in this regard. The pugnacious still persist in the form of bros, of meatheads, of hyper testosterone-laden grunts. Yet, despite this, we see acts of extreme kindness abound. We hear stories of humankind's incredible resilience in the face of unspeakable horrors and we then recognize the God given gift of the will to live.

    "What an amazing adventure!"

    I read White Fang's story when I was younger. However, I really enjoyed having it read to me by the talented narrator 40 years later. White Fang's beginning was brutal, but he certainly found his much-deserved happily ever after.

    "Powerful and Moving"

    White Fang was at times disturbing because of the harsh Yukon environment but the triumph of spirit over cruelty, loyalty over betrayal won in the end!
