I loved this book so much. The story was interesting and well-written. I think it's amazing that London was able to write from such a realistic-sounding point of view. ( )

White Fang is my first Jack London novel, and I wasn't sure what to expect. It's a more matter-of-fact approach from what I'm used to reading, almost like the narrative of a nature documentary. Certainly, London was a great observer of wolves, sled dogs, and their owners.

White Fang, although a hostile character most of the book, was still a sympathetic one...the reader is given a window into his psyche. Fascinating.

Dealing with themes of morality and redemption, White Fang will also be a great partner novel with Revolver. Told from the point of view of a dog, the author explores the violence of the animal and human worlds.

Book description
White Fang is part dog, part wolf - and the only one of five tiny cubs to survive. 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 buys him and turns him into a vicious killer - a pit dog forced to fight for money. Will White Fang ever know the kindness of a gentle master or will he die a fierce killer?
