Editorial Reviews

John L Chatty gives a composed, engaging performance of American author Jack London’s beloved novel White Fang. Both man and beast must fight for survival in the harsh Yukon landscape during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. The hero of the story, White Fang - part wolf, part dog - is born in the wilderness, but soon finds himself enmeshed with humans. Will he survive neglect and abuse? Will he triumph over adversity and experience the love and loyalty of a benevolent owner?

Publisher's Summary

As with The Call of the Wild, White Fang explores a world in which animals and men depend on each other for survival. The story of a dog who is part wolf has lasted because Jack London gives each of his animals a personality. London's narratives are more than epics of hardship and survival; the are morality plays in which virtuous good triumphs over corrupt evil.

Shame about the narration

The novel is excellent, but the recording is dire. There are alternative versions on this site and I would recommend any of those over this one.

The narrator speaks in a monotone drawl conveying no emotion or interest. By far the worst reading I have heard in any book downloaded from Audible. Even worse than most free audiobooks narrated by amateurs in their kitchens that are available on some websites.

As well as the dreary voice, the narrator frequently mixes the words 'dog' and 'god' - both of which feature prominently in this book, often leading to confusion when both appear close to eachother.

To be avoided (although as the story is excellent, a different recording of the same is to be recommended).
