    One thought on “White Fang”

    1. I think I am one of the few who did not have this book as required reading in school.White Fang chronicles the harsh realities of life. When this book begins, two men and trying to bring back the body of a third using their dog sled team. There has been a lack of food and night by night one of their dogs go missing. Finally, they see the culprit - a she wolf who is luring their dogs away. Food is scarce, and she is part of a wolf pack trying to survive. Soon the men are being hunted by the wolve [...]

    2. Can an animal part wolf, part dog, be rehabilitated and become a domestic pet? The exact opposite of, another Jack London novel, The Call of the Wild. So the premise is, in White Fang. A runaway former Indian bred she- wolf, Kiche, along with forty odd others, in a wolf pack, are following three men on a dog sled, two still alive. Famine grips the territory in the Yukon, during the Klondike Gold Rush, Canada, just before the start of the Twentieth Century . The wild animals are starving, literal [...]

    3. White Fang, Jack London’s 1906 companion (and thematic mirror) story to his classic The Call of the Wild begins with an archetypal London setting, a scene of desperate survival in a harsh, cruel environment. Following the growth of a hybrid wolf-dog as he grows and fights and survives in the frozen north, White Fang embodies and demonstrates many of the common themes of London’s work such as survival of the fittest, isolation from society, and a primitive naturalism. In the spirit of Joseph [...]

    4. I was reminded of Diana, the Huntress with her lop-eared hounds driving her chariot and her nymphs as her hunting companions when I read this book. And it is as that Goddess that I accompanied the wolf White Fang (the only survivor out of a litter of five puppies), on his incredible journey through life. I was the hidden onlooker basking in all the trials and tribulations that overcame him, be it through periods of famine, extreme brutality by human beings, his necessity and desire to hunt and t [...]

    5. White Fang, Jack London White Fang is a novel by American author Jack London (1876–1916) — and the name of the book's eponymous character, a wild wolfdog. First serialized in Outing magazine, it was published in 1906. The story takes place in Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush and details White Fang's journey to domestication. It is a companion novel (and a thematic mirror) to London's best-known work, The Call of the Wild, which is abo [...]

    6. I can still remember the day I received the hardcover edition of this novel as a christmas present by my grandmother four or five years ago. At a time when I was still recuperating from the classics thrown at us in school with the pure result of me feeling disgusted by everything which has been published more than one hundred years ago, I decided White Fang to be a piece of literature I'd better not pick up. And so it rested on my book shelf for more than three years before I brought myself to o [...]

    7. Although I did enjoy White Fang, I did not enjoy it as much as The Call of the Wild. Glad I finally read it though!

    8. One of my all time favorite books. Hard at times, bloody, but if you love the outdoors, and dogs, try it.****The above was my original "minimalist" review of this book.****Actually the book doesn't require much of a review beyond, "great book". However as a friend here noted she's just reading it my mind was drawn back to it. As noted below I grew up on a small farm and didn't have access to a lot of novels. I had 4 my parents had given me as gifts over time and our school had a small library. T [...]

    9. I just finished this and the ending is very, very cute. It bowls you over to such an extent that it feels necessary to calm down and think clearly. I love the ending because it is sweet and definitely overdone and exaggerated and sentimental. You see, because the ending is so sweet and because the earlier sections have been so heartrending, you do not want to think logically. It is nice to just let your heart overflow with happiness. There is even a touch of humor thrown in at the end.I don't kn [...]

    10. When I was in high school, this book was required reading. It was one of the first books that I could not put down - a timeless classic.

    11. Jack London, Jack London, Jack London. Ne desem az gelecek biliyorum. Jack London neden Jack London olmuş bir kez daha anlamama neden olan bir kitap oldu Beyaz Dış. Daha önce birkaç kere okumaya niyetlenmiştim ama kısmet bu zamanaymış.Normalde karla kışla pek aram yokktur ama Jack London'ın tasvirleri ile taşı tarağı toplayıp Yükon nehrinin kenarına yerleşme isteği oluştu bende. Bir kere hikayenin örgüsü, ana konuya geçiş mükemmeldi. Ayrıca karaktlerin derinlikleri, [...]

    12. ***Wanda’s Summer Carnival of Children’s Literature***Well, Jack London got to have his cake and eat it too, didn’t he? White Fang is like the mirror image of The Call of the Wild. While The Call of the Wild was about a domestic dog going wild, White Fang is the tale of a (predominately) wolf becoming domesticated.It’s a very sentimental story, structured to get us to identify with the animal. The structure sets us up to view Gray Beaver as fair but unloving, to see Beauty Smith as hatef [...]

    13. Δεν νομίζω να έχω διαβάσει άλλη αφήγηση ποτέ, που να μπαίνει τόσο πολύ στην ψυχοσύνθεση ενός ελεύθερου και άγριου πλάσματος. Εξαιρετικός ο Τζακ Λόντον.

    14. I opened my ancient copy of this book with the excitement of reading an old friend. I know I originally read it when I was about 12 or 14. I would not recommend it to anyone under 14 now, and definitely not to anyone with the slightest tendency towards cruelty or bullying. On this reading I was alternately horrified by the beatings meted out to White Fang and other animals (and their justification), and discomforted by the discourse Jack London creates about the intentions, understandings and in [...]

    15. Many years ago, as a young girl, during one of my gaming phases, I remember playing Age of Empires II. And I remember how the Aztecs, during their halcyon days succumbed to the power of the Spanish Conquistadors, merely because they though them Gods. Gods who carried guns and firepower. Gods who wore armour. Gods that they sacrificed people to pacify. Gods that ultimately caused their destruction. And no, I'm not giving a history lesson; I'm trying to give an analogy. White Fang, a wolf-dog cros [...]

    16. not to treat animals,earth humans or anythingwith disrespect. We are all equal.Animals and pets don't choose thier owners, we choose them.Animals don't know if thier owner is mean, nice, neglctive, they get good owners out of luck.

    17. Leí este libro en mi niñez y hace poco tiempo volví a releerlo, con la grata satisfacción que independiente de la edad del lector, la historia provoca las mismas emociones. Es un libro muy conmovedor, en el cual nuestro canino protagonista vive en carne propia los aspectos más extremos de la naturaleza humana, a través de los diferentes amos que tiene durante su vida. Así, experimenta la degradación más extrema, hasta la redención gracias a su “maestro de amor” al cual responde con [...]

    18. Loved it! There was so much intense action and emotion in this book that reading it was exhilarating for the most part of it. The story is constructed very well, the simple and slick writing doing its part in making the book a joy to read. The initial build-up to the actual story, the story of White Fang, a wolf-dog, was amazing. I felt immersed in the world the author so wonderfully created. This story mixes in a lot of dialogue and arguments that we generally come across when there is a discus [...]

    19. Aynı "Vahşeti Çağrısı"nda olduğu gibi hayatın zorluklarını ve hayatta kalmanın ne demek olduğunu bir kurdun gözünden anlatan Jack London "White Fang / Beyaz Diş"le hikaye anlatımını ustalık statüsüne çıkararak okuyucuya benzersiz bir sevgi serüvenine ortak ediyor. Okurken her türlü duyguyu yaşadığınız kitapta London, olayları sırasıyla bir grup insanın ardından güçlü bir dişi kurdun ve son olarak Beyaz Diş’in gözünden anlatarak zamanının yenilikçi [...]

    20. A Penguin cover of "White Fang".Jack London knows how brutal the weather and environment can be. He has lived in the Yukon (Canada) which has one of the harshest climates in the world. At times the cold can be unbearable even for those living here.After finishing school at 14, Mr. London left for the Yukon where he caught fishes and seals to make a living. Later, on returning to Oakland, California he joined college but dropped out after six months. He then took to writing. He wrote articles and [...]

    21. original read: 1999The first time I read this book I was ten and it took me all of summer vacation to finish the book. Now it only took two days and it was the nostalgia that helped me finish the book. Adventure books have lost some of their appeal to me as an adult, but I can still appreciate the captivating, descriptive writing. Some parts of this haven't aged well, I can't say that the inspiration that Nietzsche provided for writer is boring, but the absolute strength and quiet dignity of Whi [...]

    22. 2.5 stars actually. At first I was going to rate it only 2 stars because I didn't find the story interesting at all and the author rambled way too much to say the most simple of things. Almost everything he said about White Fang and his instincts and experiences could have been said in one or two sentences, instead of writing a whole chapter about how he finally left the cave behind and his (or its) feelings about it. Nevertheless, things changed halfway through the third part and the story real [...]

    23. Describing the silent journey of the travelers through the cold, barren landscape: "It affected their minds as the many atmospheres of deep water affect the body of the diver. It crushed them with the weight of unending vastness and unalterable decree. It crushed them into the remotest recesses of their own minds" Exactly how I felt trudging through chapter 1. I staggered into part four---60% of the way through my slow journey toward the end of the book---exhausted with boredom. I was starved fo [...]

    24. White Fang is half dog and half wolf. Growing up in the Yukon territory of Canada during the Klondike Gold Rush, he learned the law of the Wild at an early age: kill, or be killed, eat, or be eaten. Separated from his mother and traded from master to master, White Fang never grasped the concept of love, and violence was all that he knew. Having no teacher, he learned the rules of survival by experience. Then, a cruel man buys White Fang and turns him into a pit dog forced to fight for money. Wit [...]

    25. (4'5⭐) He terminado emocionada este libro; me ha llegado dentro ♥ (además de sacarme de una crisis lectora importante y con el que, orgullosamente, he estrenado mi Kindle Paperwhite cumpleañero). Es ese eterno pendiente que vas postergando y postergando porque siempre hay otros que te dicen "leéme a mí antes" 🗨📖☝ pero gracias a el #ClubClásicosJuveniles ya no había excusa para echarle el guante en este bimestre. Pues bien, me ha gustado muchísimo. Es una historia que, aunque d [...]

    26. Reading Jack London's White Fang was beyond any expectation. The manner by which he has so vividly written in an animal's point of view leads one to incredulous experiences and conclusions while wholly experiencing the enthralling story. I'm almost inclined to argue - with an implausible idea - that London is white fang himself experiencing firsthand all that he has written. This statement does not render absurdity but rather should be further taken as an evidence giving credence that London's W [...]
