    I love this book! I read it a long time ago (back when I was 12 years old) I believe I received it for free from Amazon but I'm not sure. I wanted my grandsons to read it and hopefully love it as much as I do. Instead, I reread it myself and it was just as good as I remembered. There is just something heartwarming about the love between a human and a dog. Parts of this book was sad, parts were uplifting but all of them were entertaining! I would recommend this book to everyone (especially those who love animals). It is timeless!

    Very disappointed and will be returning. The layout is just awful. Crowded text, no indentation, and not even any age numbers?!! I purchased this printing as it was advertised as "illustrated", and felt my son would enjoy having some pictures while reading this excellent story (a favorite from my own youth). There are approximately eight illustrations in the book, and they all appear to be of very poor quality - almost look like photocopies. I don't know who typeset this edition or why they made the offputting choices they did, but I highly recommend purchasing a standard regular publishing house edition instead.

    I have loved these stories since childhood, and I was very excited to revisit them as audiobooks now that I'm an adult with a long commute. The stories were just as fantastic as I remember! The narration was also excellent. I enjoyed the narrator's style because it allowed me to be immersed into the story. Overall, I highliy recommend this audiobook to anyone. It's a 2-for1 deal with great narration and fantastic stories!I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left my review.

    I read White Fang for my classic book club. London's description of the Yukon emphasizes the harshness of nature. In Part 1, London begins with a time before White Fang is born. This part helps the reader understand the environment. White Fang is born in Part 2. The rest of the book is about the ups and downs of White Fang's life - too many downs for comfortable reading. The fact that I see the Native American characters as stereotyped made me give it 3 stars instead of more.

    The journey of White Fang’s survival in the wild, in the inhabited Yukon, and in west coast civilization. This classic story accurately captures the adaptability of the wolf-dog. One-quarter dog, three-quarters wolf. The power of instinct, the power of nature, and the cruelty and charity of mankind. This is a story that should be read by everyone.

    Enthralling story brought vividly to life. A book of its time, though, calling white men "superior gods" - that was jarring and excessively uncomfortable to read.Even more uncomfortable to read were the descriptions of the beatings, and the minute details of the dog fights, described almost with enjoyment so much were they lingered over. I am not a huge animal lover, but intensely dislike any abuse of animals, and these descriptions were extremely difficult to read. If you are sensitive to this kind of thing, please be aware there is a large stomach-churning section that is very upsetting. The persecutor gets his comeuppance though, as do all villains.Almost made me love the wilds of the Yukon, but not entirely - it's cold enough here in Toronto. :P

    Got this for my 12 year old daughter to read, and she loves it. I read it in middle school and loved it, so I'm happy she's enjoying it. This is definitely a classic, great story, but readers will do well to remember that is was written in a time before the PC Police existed. I've used it as an opportunity to teach my daughter a lesson in right, wrong, and popular opinion.

    I have read this book before but never listened to it. This was a great listen while working in the garden and doing my needlework.This book is a companion piece to Call of the Wild in the fact that it tells the opposite story. The story of a wolf who survives hardship and misery only to experience love and trust in his later years.All is told from the wolf's point of view and except for Black Beauty I have never read a better attempt than this.Bob Thomley is a great narrator who reads with great emphasis and empathy.White Fang lived such a harsh life and I really was pulling for him to overcome that and find peace.I love this book!
