Book Review of White Fang by Jack London
Written by Tanay Somisetty
White Fang by Jack London is an extraordinary novel. London’s simple yet effective prose takes you to a place where the wild is the law and all living things are compelled by the fear of the unknown. White Fang is a book about how a young wolf-dog (also named White Fang) survives and grows in the wild and in captivity during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush. White Fang is shaped and molded by the circumstances he finds himself in. He struggles to determine whether to follow the law of the wild or the law of his masters and this takes him on a remarkable journey of finding out where he truly belongs. White Fang may be a classic but Jack London writes in a way that allows the reader to understand White Fang’s story with ease. I strongly recommend this book to everyone.
