White Fang by Jack London

Have you ever read any book that viewed the story from an animal's perspective? Well, this book is told from a dog's point of view. Now, it's not the average fantasy/sci-fi book. No, the animals do not talk, they are not capable of any magic. No. This book is about the life of a dog, and how it is treat throughout its life. It experiences and the way its treated shapes and molds his character and makes what he is. Starting out as a cub, White Fang learns the way of the wild. He figures everything out for himself.

This book not also teaches you about the behavior and thoughts of dogs, but it also shows you how animal cruelty is shown by many different ways. It is an inspiring book, but a challenging one. This is not quick read. I would recommend this book for those who like classics, and are up for a challenge. Overall, I guess I didn't like the book, but it doesn't mean it was bad. Rating: 2.5 stars.
