So, I just started reading and let the book surprise me.
I started with White Fang which, apart from some focus switches in the beginning, I ended up really liking It was fast paced action from the beginning to the end, I just couldn t put the book down There is a healthy dose of violence, but it s far from over the top Instead, it really adds something to the story.
After reading some other random book in between, I read Call of the Wild It s only about half the length of White Fang, which makes it really short The same fast paced action from White Fang continues here.
The writing style in both books is pretty straightforward, nothing too complex, which I found good.
Overall, I have to admit that 4 out of 5 stars for both The Call of the Wild and White Fang by Jack London.
The Call of the Wild tells the story of Buck who is dognapped and is put into a dog sled team in Alaska, and then later has to learn the ways of the wild It is a very entertaining short story.
White Fang digs a bit deeper than the The Call of the Wild It had a deeply theological and religious theme throughout White Fang is a wolf, born in the wild that has to learn faith in humans early in his life, then his faith is tested through many trials, and then he has to make the difficult climb back to find his faith again in humankind The beginning of White Fang is some of the most edge of my seat reading I ve had in a long time It is overall a very unforgettable adventure.
I really enjoyed both of these stories and they work very well together They are basically opposite stories and ha
I ve read a good number of books with protagonists as dogs, but only in these two books I can really see the world from a dog s point of view True, the stories are violent, but that goes with the setup of the north But the details are so realistic, and growth so credible I really had the impression of traveling to that northland, and living with these dogs, day by day.
For both these stories, the ends are expansive and inspirational They left my heart rich yet light Note, March 2, 2016 I ve just edited this review to insert spoiler tags which didn t exist when I originally wrote it in a couple of places Note, March 5, 2014 I posted this review a few years ago, but in reading over it just now, I realized I needed to correct a typo Actually, I read these two novels in different editions than this omnibus volume And, while I read White Fang sometime in the 90s, I d already read The Call of the Wild in high school.
London is one of my favorite authors despite his ideological dependence on Marx and Darwin, and his Naturalist outlook in which human behavior is viewed as purely the product of social forces, inborn instincts and biological needs , all of which are very different from my own attitudes He has very strong storytelling skills, and he writes with a kind of clear
