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.

- Jan "Tangential, eclectic, avid listener... favorite book is the one currently in ear."

"The law is: Eat or be Eaten"

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!
