Editorial Reviews

The severe and chilling voice of veteran narrator Walter Zimmerman is the perfect pairing for this grisly story from Jack London. Playing with the idea of "man's best friend", Diable, A Dog is the story of an independent and wolfish dog, who does well to live up to his hellish name, striking fear in any passersby. Only his owner, Black Leclére, can match Diable's venomous nature. It's a dangerous relationship, and as listeners soon learn there is only one way it can end. Walter Zimmerman's vivid performance will lead listeners right through to the fateful conclusion.

Publisher's Summary

Diable - A Dog, first appeared in Cosmopolitan Magazine June, 1902.Unlike Buck in The Call of the Wild, this fiercely independent dog was anything but man's best friend. Most thought he was a devil but, as the story says his master Black Leclère was also a devil, "and the twain were well matched."

Oh, The Suspense

This is a story typical of Jack London, with an icy central character whose intentions are never quite clear, fighting against an elemental enemy.

The enemy dogs his every move. But though the man tries to beat his enemy, he cannot. The final scenes were very suspenseful. I thought London was going to leave us hanging with a "did he? didn't he?" type of ending, but that's not London's style, and at the last minute he snatches the story from the jaws of uncertainty, leaving us with a sense of finality we can't shake off.

Very good story. Not his best work, but you can see the elements of London's style shine through like half buried nuggets of gold.

Narrator was amusing to listen to. Couldn't figure out if his accent was supposed to be French or Jamaican.
