    "I love these classics!"

    I have not heard these stories since I was in probably gradeschool. I knew I loved them back then but I couldn't really remember much about what they were about.

    After hearing them again the only thing I can say is no wonder why these are classics!! man Jack London knows his stuff! These books will be ones I always keep in my library for future listening.
    The narration, which can destroy a good book, was excellent in this book.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Amazing Classic Collection"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Call of the Wild and White Fang?

    Too many to mention. Mr. Theis does a fabulous job keeping up the energy throughout the collection. My heart was in my throat several times during situations with Buck and Robert Thornton and then with White Fang and Gray Beaver.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Theis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. At first I thought I was listening at 1.5x speed. Then I realized it was just the energy level set by Mr. Theis. I was in the garden all weekend. I was so engrossed in the storytelling, my husband had to come search for me just after dusk. Thanks for keeping me company.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Mr. London had an amazing ability to capture a scene and the characters (human or animal) and put the listener/reader right there in it. One of my favorite videos to watch with my kiddos was 'Milo & Otis', but it was very much a visual pleasure. Mr. London paints the visual with his words...it's brilliant.

    "Excellent Production of a Great Classic"
    What made the experience of listening to The Call of the Wild and White Fang the most enjoyable?

    The production is excellent! Kevin Theis did a great job narrating as well as with character voices, I also enjoyed the musical background at the beginning of each book.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the Young Readers’ version of this book many years ago and I loved it, so I felt that I needed to read the original! There are no dull moments; It keeps you in suspense all the time, and since I listened to it while driving, I kept listening until at least finishing the chapter where I was, even when I have arrived to my destinations! <br/><br/>I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!<br/>

    Story
    "Narration too energetic for my liking"

    These two novels are classics of literature. No one else but Jack London was able to portrait dogs in the same way. The first is a tale of cruelty towards animals, and the search for freedom. The second in tells a different story, being about a wild animal looking for a loving owner. Despite being familiarized with both stories, it is my first time reading these books, and it could be that they feel old fashioned, or that they have been idealized over time, but I expected to enjoy them more than I did.

    I don't think I can blame the language for being old fashioned, since I have read books which were written even before, but in this case I had the feeling it was in front of a documentary. The prose was direct and with no frills, lacking the musicality of other works from the same time.

    Dogs are wonderfully portrayed in both novels, and this will for sure delight animal lovers; but human characters and events seemed sometimes quite random. Human characters lacked any depth, and I could not connect to any of them. I guess this was part of London's intention, but I also had troubles to fall in love with the dogs.

    I have a more important complaint, and it is the presence of racism on White Fang. I understand this could be more common at the time the book was written, but it is still not justified, and this partly spoils the story.

    Kevin Theis adjusted perfectly adjusted his narration to the style of the book. His voice was clear and sounded more like a documentary than a work of fiction. Even though it was perfect for this style, I found it too energetic at times. I enjoy a soothing voice when listening to an audiobook. This does not mean that it cannot be engaging at the same time. It seems Theis focused more on this, making the listen a bit too stressful for me. I was not able to listen to it for long periods of time.

    I received a copy of this book in audio format from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
