Only one man sees inside the killer to his intelligence and nobility. But can his kindness touch White Fang?

Not just for my Kids or my Youth

I absolutely love the prose of Jack London. I wonder exactly how many people have died, pulled North to the Wild by the romantic pen of Jack London. I finished a while back (Dietz's version) and was crying as I listened to it with my kids.

I've recently become interested in listening to several classics by different readers. London was one of the first I've done this with, but it worked well so he won't be the last.

John Lee gives a very solid reading of this classic. I think this is probably the superior audio of White Fang. While I like Dietz (and haven't done anything but sampled Thomley), Lee's reading is straight forward and easily managed at hyper-audio speeds (2.5x or faster). The only downside of a narration by Lee, is it is sort of like watching a movie with Kevin Bacon. They guy is everywhere and it is weird to hear his voice in so many places.

Who's the animal: Man or Wolf?

This story is considered a classic for good reasons. Published over a century ago, the story remains timeless. It also offers glimpse into the past, as Jack London's descriptions of northern life, and in particular the life of First Nations people at the time, is fairly accurate from all accounts.

It refreshing to see how a masterful author can handle cruelty and violence without resulting to the usual graphic descriptions of today. Make no mistake, this is a story about a wolf cub at a time when society was much less predisposed to kindness. It stands to reason this story doesn't follow a Disney like pattern.

What the story does so well, however, is to illustrate the cruelty of certain men. This cruelty stands side by side in comparison to the supposed cruelty of the wolf, which is judged negatively at every turn by "civilized man". It does provide good food for thought.

John Lee did an excellent job. Even if you've read the book, it's worth listening to the audio book just for the performance. If you're not familiar with the story, then I can only mention that this really is a "must read" novel. You won't be disappointed.
