In the desolate, frozen wilds of north-west Canada, a wolf-cub soon find himself sole survivor of the litter. Son of Kiche - half-wolf, half-dog - and the ageing wolf One Eye, he is thrust into a savage world where each day becomes a fight to stay alive. Once again, due to my time management issues, it took me way too much time to finish this book, even though I thoroughly enjoyed it. I should mention that my eyes sparkle up and my interest immediately increases if a books is set in Canada or/and cold northern wilderness, but there was more to White Fang. I am kind of scared of reading classics but this one did not disappoint me at all. My favorite parts of the story were definitely White Fang's perceptions of the world, from the time he got of of the lair for the first time when he was a cub. He didn't know anything, he had to learn everything the hard way, observe the world and find his own explanations. To him, people were omnipotent gods, with their own laws he had to learn. More powerful than any creature of the wild, more dangerous than any predator. They destroyed him at first but later managed to teach him how to love and laugh, too. 5/5 + Favorite shelf
when i finished this book, I was flooded with warm happy feelings. later, when i was able to think clearly, I noticed that there were a lot of unanswered questions. The novel could have been even better.
