White Fang
White Fang | Jack London
White Fang is part dog and part wolf, and the lone survivor of his family. In his lonely world, he soon learns to follow the harsh law of the North--kill or be killed. But nothing in White Fang's life can prepare him for the cruel owner who turns him into a vicious killer. Will White Fang ever know the kindness of a gentle master?

I am not so much of a classics reader. I LOVED this book. I love White Fang and the whole story lead me on a roller coaster of emotions.

First finished book in my new home. I liked that the perspective was that of the wolf-dog White Fang. Enjoyed it while I was reading but not something that I can see myself picking up again.

Two beasts made to hate.
One gave in; One learned to love.
Love wins with a flash.

I really enjoyed this book! It was a compelling story showing that although a person‘s or Wolf-dog‘s life may shape him or her towards a morose, solitary and hateful disposition, it is never too late as long as someone is willing to extend a hand. Plus, I find London‘s portrayal of the wild and the domestic captivating.

It was a placing of his destiny in another's hands, a shifting of the responsibilities of existence. This in itself was compensation, for it is always easier to lean upon another than to stand alone.

Half of this book is basically a dictionary 😂 There are over 200 hundred definitions counting all of the footnotes and honestly I find myself distracted by finding all those little numbers while trying to finish a sentence. 😥

PerksOfBeingABookworm I hate excessive use of footnotes. At what point do you stop to read them? Mid sentence? End of sentence? End of paragraph? I‘ve used footnotes in papers before, but I kind of hate reading them. 10mo

I'm revisiting an old childhood favorite while I wait for my car to get ready. I bought and read this book as a kid because it had a wolf on the cover. 😂
According to the blurb on the back of the book, London committed himself to writing a 1000 words a day for 16 years!!

This book was beautifully written. It follows the life of White Fang from puppyhood up to fatherhood. I can 100% understand why this is a favored book for younger readers! 💖

Definitely not a cuddly puppy story. Brutal lives and weather. While this was a decent survival story for teenagers, it felt lacking in many ways. We got a pretty shallow view of the characters. Good or evil or indifferent with very little background info.

Leniverse Call of the Wild is better. Superb even. 13mo
Nebklvr @Leniverse I liked it better too 13mo
Nebklvr @Tamra He carries his food from room to room as he doesn‘t like to eat alone so perhaps he was just resting 13mo

Starting these two today!
Both are #readingwithfriends books. I have read White Fang way back in primary school (Ages and ages ago) and it was a major part in a ‘gang‘ we had back then...so re-reading this for old time sake along with one of the original gang-members @Greensapphirine
I think the gang was called DIE WITWOLF (the white wolf) or it was my gang name...🤔
Ah good sweet innocent times!

Jack London has an incredible capacity to write from a dog's point of view. This story is about survival, the devastating effects of abuse, and the healing power of love.

White Fang is a wolf who is one-quarter dog. He grows up in the wild, learns its harsh lessons - eat or be eaten. Then he becomes a dog, and is beaten and abused, which makes him distrustful and savage. Until he encounters kindness and love - which slowly changes him. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Gezemice Looking at today's prompt, this classic definitely #needsmorelove - #anditsaugust (edited) 2y

One of my girls brought her beat-up copy of The Call of the Wild & White Fang to me. She knows I'm not a fan of books from the POV of animals. (I don't know why. I've always found them soooo boring.)

She asked me to give Jack London another try. So here I am, with White Fang on print and audio.

Thankfully John Lee makes everything possible 🙌🏻 Years after I read this for the first time, I finally care about this book. This is so exciting to me.

Owlizabeth Yes John Lee!! 2y
TheBookStacker I loved both these books as a child. I still revisit them frequently I love Jack London. 2y
skyeharmony I really liked The Call of the Wild (read it a few years ago as an adult). Haven't read White Fang, though. 2y

"Human kindness was like a sun shining upon him, and he flourished like a flower planted in good soil.
And yet he remained somehow different from other dogs. He knew the law even better than did the dogs that had known no other life; and he observed the law more punctiliously; but still there was about him a suggestion of lurking ferocity, as though the Wild still lingered in him and the wolf in him merely slept." #whitefang #jacklondon

White Fang is a great book! It has creepy forests and great details! This book does contain violence. (and blood.) I love how amazing of a character White Fang is, even though he doesn't talk!

I never read many classics growing up, to my dismay. But, now I can with an app called Serial Reader. Someone recommended it on here and it's great. Gives you 5-14 minute "episodes" a day. Highly recommended if you haven't read the classics. P.S. Not an ad just really love the idea of the app!

Graciouswarriorprincess I love this app. I'm reading "War and Peace". 3y
