    1 thought on “The Call of the Wild and White Fang

    1. 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 fai [...]

    2. 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!

    3. 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 --d [...]

    4. I neither read the sypnosis nor did I have any idea about both the stories. Actually, I was provoked read them because of the special interest of Christopher McCandless in Jack London's tales.Christopher is someone I admire alot (to know who he is read Into the Wild). He admired Jack London and his work very much. Christopher was a outdoor guy, a tramp. So I was expecting these stories to be some kind of adventure stories. But I was wrong.This is a finest book, I've read on dogs/wolves. Personal [...]

    5. Last summer, I read Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild. I found Christopher McCandless’s fascination with Jack London to be interesting, but it was hard for me to fully understand where McCandless was coming from, having never read London’s works. I also have a deep respect for animals and a disgust at their ill-treatment at the hands of human beings. For those two reasons, I chose to read The Call of the Wild for my Literature class.The cover of the book captivated me. I enjoyed studying the pi [...]

    6. Are you special? Well of course you are! You are built up from your trials and pain. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Like White Fang, you are here for a purpose. Someday you'll realize what the purpose is.White Fang by Jack London is an amazing story about a half-wolf, half-dog that goes through many struggles and truly learns about himself. He goes on a captivating journey of courage and strength; life. It also follows a team of sled dogs led by a man named Henry. It tells of their jo [...]

    7. Picked it up when I was on a shopping spree, I knew it was probably about dogs and wolves, but apart from that I didn't knew what to expect.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 [...]

    8. When White Fang meets Weedon Scott - it is good. Up until then it is so violent, dark, sad. It was more difficult to read than I expected but John Seelye's Introduction helped me understand London's meaning for it and so have a better respect for it as a classic.This edition has the two stories of course - my 10 year old and I started reading The Call of the Wild together but it was too much for him - too violent, that much he could make out because the language is so old even I found it confusi [...]

    9. Тези две книги са идеалният комплект, но попаднаха в ръцете ми в неподходящо време. Не върви да ги четеш пролетно време, когато всичко се събужда за нов живот. Още по-малко пък под жарките лъчи на лятното слънце. Когато земята се покрие с разноцветни листа моментът наближава, [...]

    10. I purchased and read separate books, but I'll write one summary here. Jack London was another one of those great writers who died too young, at only age 40. Born John Griffith Chaney, writer of Call of the Wild, White Fang and The Sea Wolf and numerous other works. He was burdened by illnesses and disease, and like Ernest Hemingway, some suspected he committed suicide because he was taking heavy dozes of morphine for his pain and he, like Hemingway, was a heavy drinker, so an accidental or delib [...]

    11. This book actually contains TWO Jack London stories. First isWhite FangIt's riveting. London writes with an amazing ability to stay completely in the present. This leaves the reader scrabbling to figure out what will come next, but there is no sneaky planting of clues or leading you along. You just take each bite of the text and rush to gulp down the next so you can make sense of it all. This places us in the same position as the protagonist, White Fang. The key distinction between man and anima [...]

    12. It's been many years since I read this novel, but I can recall every sentence, well, almost If you love animals, you'll enjoy this book, except in parts where cruelty is explicit, but not gratuitous as the reader need s to understand White Fangs life. If you romanticise about wandering in a wild dangerous environment, then Jack London paints the landscape perfectly. This is a novel that will leave a taste in your mouth, and so it should. The only reason I have only given the book three stars is [...]

    13. It took me a while to decide whether to mark this as a 'favourite' read and so give it top marks - the reason being that the book does include a lot of animal cruelty and to say I 'enjoyed' reading this is not true. However, this isn't what the book is about and the author uses the cruelty to highlight his message, to show how and why the dogs in both his stories act like they do, and to show how they can be redeemed, despite man's worst attempts.'White Fang' tells the story of a half wolf, half [...]

    14. The Call of the Wild - 5/5Pros:1. Interesting characters, from Buck (the shepherd x St Bernard), to Sol-leks (the half blind sled dog), to Perrault (the Frenchman), to Mercedes and John Thornton.2. An vivid depiction of the gold rush in Northern North America which led to the need for sled-dogs3. The author goes into the brutality of that time, in man and beast4. Emotional moments5. The writing is tight, with few words wastedCons:1. None that I can think of. Probably just that it was too short. [...]

    15. Jack London's Call of the Wild and White Fang are two very dense and detailed stories. There is no doubt that London has a very strong connection to dogs, and his ability to describe how natural instincts separate them from humans is remarkable. I found that with both stories there were strong similarities such as heart wrenching treatments that the dogs both endured, but there were slight differences as well, though Buck was a pure dog and White Fang was half wolf. Considering that I am a dog o [...]

    16. These were much, much better than I, a non-dog, non-cold-places person had anticipated. They are certainly not twee anthropomorphic animal stories, nor are they man looking at dog and describing his lot. Like Black Beauty they are told from the point of view of the animal but in the third person. However, these animals remain far more wolf and dog : they live in and respond to their environment, but do not question why it is as it is. I found this very powerful and felt London had got much close [...]

    17. These were two of my favorite "classical" books growing up and I can say they both definately stand the test of time. Now that am older and also have read them both back to back just want to say I really kind of found it interesting how these two books were actually kind of bookends for one another. Buck goes from domesticated to wild, and White Fang goes from wild to domesticated. Nice exploration of contrasting and similar themes.

    18. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fantastic. White Fang's story was way more interesting than Buck's story. I hate the way the humans were so cruel to the wolves and dogs by beating them with their own hands and clubs and whips! This book is very nice because we get to see the perspective of a dogs life. Buck was a very lazy and fat dog that lived in the Sunny place of US, until he got kidnapped and brought to the North Land. They used to beat him with clubs and the other dogs would ste [...]

    19. One of the commitments I've made this year is to try and read more books that have stood the test of time rather than defaulting to the flavor of the month new release. It took some time to work through but I'm glad I read these classics novels. Jack London has a sharp command of the English language and uses it deftly to paint the vast, unforgiving landscape of the Northland. The Call of the Wild & White Fang both told from a dogs perspective are merciless and stark tales of survival at any [...]

    20. fleeting thoughts, i just finished the book.l. its an alpha male wish fulfillment. being the biggest, strongest, the most powerful, the leader of the pack. no appeal to this grandma.2. the glorification of nature. The savagery. The strength. Survival of the fittest. The noble savage as hero. no appeal to this grandma.3. atavism. regression to primitivism. law of the jungle. no appeal to this grandma.4. the time. industrialization. civilization. being beaten into submission. London was a communis [...]

    21. “The Call of the Wild” and “White Fang” are two tales of brutality, survival, and interdependence that take place in Alaska. London’s writing is largely influenced by a hazardous winter that he survived in the Klondike during the 1897 gold rush. Both “Call of the Wild” and “White Fang” demonstrate the struggle for survival and echo Darwin’s sentiments that only the strongest survive and go onto reproduce. Both novels also feature canines that are forced to adapt to their surr [...]

    22. A brilliant read, full of action and adventure, as an ordinary house dog, Buck, is stolen and must fight for survival in the harsh wilderness. Soon, he meets his future pack and he moves up the rankings until he's the top dog. Will he survive the endless winter on the ice?

    23. Being my first foray in reading Jack London, I have to say I was impressed with both The Call of the Wild and White Fang. One can really see that Jack London had a passion for nature as well as animals, and his abilities to observe and interpret those things are evident in his writing. The thing that struck me most about reading The Call of the Wild and White Fang in one collection was how much the stories parallel each other. The Call of the Wild begins with Buck, a "soft Southland dog," who is [...]

    24. I am glad that I finally was able to read these classic novels by Jack London. I remember hearing them cited fondly in "Into the Wild" and other naturalistic books, and they lived up to the hype in my opinion. For the most part I thought that London did a great job trying to capture and embody the animal spirit, and I found myself moved emotionally with the story of White Fang in particular. As a lover of nature and a soft spot for dogs I would highly recommend this book, especially in today's s [...]

    25. This review related to the first story in this book, The Call of the Wild.London tells us a yarn in the good ol’ fashioned Boys Own style with The Call of the Wild. And that's how it was read to me many years ago by my father, without any knowledge of London's communism. So we follow the interior life of a dog named Buck, from an unduly civilized Lord of his Domain dog, into a near-mythical creature of the wild, a kind of spirit animal. And there’s more to it if we want to listen.‘Deep in [...]

    26. Classic and a great read!!! I read it long time ago as a child and in Russian. Reading it this time, as an adult, makes these stories more meaningful and thought provoking. It saddens me that these days kids/teens read abridged versions of this classic.These are two stories of apposing journeys.As Buck (a dog) reverts to his wild nature and answers the Call of The Will, so does White Fang (3/4 wolf) finds the companionship of humans irresistible. An interesting part of the narrative, for me, was [...]

    27. I read The Call of the Wild a while ago and recently finished White Fang, so this review will be geared towards White Fang.To start, I did enjoy the book despite my adamant belief that it should probably be at most half of its current length. London was an incredibly gifted writer, but damn did he feel the need to drill over and over again his points. After about 50 pages, I understood that White Fang was a wild animal. There was no need to carry on and on and on about how he is a wild animal an [...]

    28. The Call of the Wild ★★★ (Because I don't like some of the ending!)White Fang ★★★☆ (At first, I can't be immersed in story And I don't like London's several ideas. But in the end, story was good and rewarding)-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-**-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*My Quotes from The Call of the Wild and White Fang (Jack London)★There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living [...]

    29. Book Review #1There were two books in this one book so I'll only be reviewing one of them, The Call Of The Wild by Jack London. i though this book was really good. It had a lot of meaning in it and it was mostly about dogs become fierce warriors. This one day named Buck was kidnapped and sold to humans. They were suppose to carry the humans sled. At first, Buck was weak, really weak. He was raised by humans in a house. As the story progresses, Buck becomes a lot stronger, leading the group of do [...]
