Summary

From the renowned author Jack London comes two classic adventure stories about primitivism, nature, and early 20th-century life. Seen through the eyes of two dogs, their stories are distinct yet share similarities, and they have cemented London as a literary genius and writer. 

In this bundle, you’ll discover:

  • The Call of the Wild, telling the story of the St. Bernard-Scotch shepherd, Buck, as he’s kidnapped from his home in Santa Clara Valley. Forced to survive as a sled dog in the midst of the Klondike Gold Rush, Buck must learn to embrace his wild ancestry and rise above the other canines.
  • And White Fang, a mirror of Buck’s story about a wolf-dog hybrid and his tumultuous upbringing. Experiencing the countless dangers of both the wild and the human world, White Fang details his journey to domestication.

Including complex themes such as morality and redemption, Jack London’s classic works have stood the test of time and remain central examples of literary fiction, a must-hear for anyone interested in the brilliant works of the past.

Love the stories but the narrator is wrong.

Jack London, like Whitman, Longfellow, Alcott, and Twain is a quintessentially American Author. To have a British Narrator just doesn’t go with the story. Mr. Kelly’s voice is quite pleasant but just not suited for tales such as these.

Not Just Books for Children !

I read all of the Jack London books as a teenager. In my mind, they were in the same category as Jules Vern and Mark Twain. However, as a happily retired adult, I just “read” them again, and was amazed at the clarity and enjoyment they presented. No wonder these stories have survived a hundred years! The reading by J. D. Kelly was also superb.

Amazing everything but the voice

The mans voice is fine but it gets grating after 3 hours or so, but the stories are definitely worth a listen

Depressing

Call of the Wild is very depressing for most of the book. White Fang is not much different. They both have happy endings, but much of the story is gut wrenching. I can't say that I recommend them.

One of the best audible listens!

Great narration of a timeless story. Combo of London’s novels is great. White Fang shines!
