Another Great Classic!!

What did you love best about White Fang?

I love that it comes from the dogs point of view.

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

When his final owner saves him from the "beast"

What does Bob Thomley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tom does a great job in making all the characters accents and voices. You can really get the feeling and the idea of all the different people that are involved.

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

Life is tough when you're part wolf And they know it

1905 Classic Dog/Wolf/Man Tale

In my quest to fill in the gaps of my unread classics, this is another book completed. I didn't love it; a little too much animal cruelty and violence between animals. The kill or be killed, kill to eat and survive... I have never liked books written from an animals point of view and this is mostly told from 3/4 Wolf 1/4 dog - White Fang. That said, it was an interesting process as he moved from wild to tame, though a variety of owners and living situations. It's a fairly quick read, doesn't cost much and was glad I read. Probably an older boy book, with some discussion on why people and animals turn out like they do and how White Fang evolves because of his treatment.

A Masterpiece

Narrated perfectly. The story is a masterpiece. Awesome illustration of nature's greatest animal. Also a study in human behavior and loyalty.

Very glad that I bought this

London found a surprisingly good forum to demonstrate his psychological insight, and I believe that my own insights are expanded from having listened to this audiobook. My only complaint is that it ends somewhat abruptly and inconclusively.

An adventurous tale of a very interesting wolf

I didn't really know what to expect. But, I thoroughly enjoyed story. The author paints colorful, well-written scenes. The language, emotions, and events are very engaging.

Excellent

I loved The Call of the Wild as a child but only came to this as an adult. I wasn't so sure about the rather pedestrian quality of the last chapters in California, but the early chapters, with their vivid rendering of animal psychology – translated into human terms but somehow without anthropomorphising the animals – are very good indeed. I enjoyed the wise, frontiersman quality of Bob Thornley's narration very much.

Brilliant book

You can tell it was written for episodic publication, but the slow understanding of a wolf-dog is a wonderful insight. Any child hoping to own a domesticated animal should read this to get a feeling of how to treat it and how it feels.
The ending brings a tear to the eye but for one not in a bad way. Well read and essential reading.
