REVIEWS
Audiofile
The name Jack London is synonymous with adventure, masculinity, and wilderness. This diverse collection of recordings, however, transcends these preconceived notions. There's adventure, to be sure, but London's tales are not limited to the Klondike of his most famous novels, THE CALL OF THE WILD and WHITE FANG. Each narrator lends his own contemporary feel to this production through lively pacing and a knowledgeable navigation of the author's syntax. Lastly, listeners will appreciate the stylish transitions between stories; a brief musical interlude and a measured offering of the next title are nice touches that allow the resolution of one story and the anticipation of the next.
