Jack London's classic adventure story about the friendship developed between a Yukon gold hunter and the mixed dog-wolf he rescues from the hands of a man who mistreats him. White Fang is a companion novel and thematic mirror to London's best-known work, The Call of the Wild.

honestly, purported classics usually sound great to me, but gods help me, I could not listen to anymore minutes of describing animals biting each other for sex or food. I get it: That's what animals and human animals do, but Jesus! Where's the story? Why bother telling readers the same thing over and over and over and over again? Was there a word count requirement? This book is so bad I couldn't bear it, and I've wasted tons of time reading and listening to terrible books.
The spiritual successor to "Call of the Wild" is great from start to finish.
I love the contrast, and almost "reverse fate" of White Fang compared to Buck.
As always; London does a fantastic job exploring Nature vs Nurture in this epic story!
the performance of the reader was so poor I didn't finish the book. I have listened to Jack London's Call of the Wild on Audible and loved every second of it but it was with a different reader.
The volume kept changing so at times I had to go back several times only to hear the reader. it was also really hard to distinguish between the characters or to stay focus so monotonous was the reading.
For an audiobook under two dollars, you can't complain too much. It's totally worth it for the price. However, the performance definitely lacks emotion. If you're reading it because you want to really get lost in the story, then spring for a more expensive, emotional reading.
This is one of the books that makes Jack London a legendary Author.
Similar to Call of the Wild in texture, but completely different. You will not feel like you just read the same book. While it gives a canine view, it is an entirely different view and feels so spot on that you can relate the ideas to humanity as well. It also tells an outer story of the relationships of dog and man, which is also telling of the human psyche.
This is a fluffy choice.. but its when White Fang explores as a puppy for the first time.
Yes, I was riveted and worried.
I did not know what to expect when I began this book. I chose it because it was a classic book and I heard of it since I was a child. I was surprised by how enthralled I became with the story of a wolf. at various points throughout the book, the author told the story from the perspective of the wolf. This was intriguing. If you've ever had a pet and wonder what they may think then you will also enjoy this story.
I was born a long time ago in a small town far, far, away. Tanta stultitia mortalium est.
Yes - classic adventures like this get better with age; additionally, we forget details and enjoy re-reading good old stories.
When he was last rescued from the fighting ring, and puppies in California.
Very good enunciation of different characters, and proper levels of emotion and excitement at the right times in the story.
No, only about 100 of them.
Highly Recommended audible version of a classic story.
