Description-

  • One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain is revolutionary. It offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal—he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization." This superb reading by Patrick Fraley is rich in the color and adventurous spirit of the Mississippi River. It captures the world and people that Mark Twain knew and loved.

About the Author-

  • Mark Twain (1835–1910) was born Samuel L. Clemens in the town of Florida, Missouri. One of the most popular and influential authors our nation has ever produced, his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. He has been called not only the greatest humorist of his age but also the father of American literature.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Run, skip, drive, walk quickly, swim or locomote to your nearest audiobook supplier and procure a copy of Patrick Fraley's sensational reading of this American classic. Touted on its packaging as a performance, as opposed to a mere narration, this rendition should be recognized as an audio classic in its own right. Fraley recreates Huck, Jim and the rest of the gang flawlessly, using an elastic voice, perfect diction and bubbling enthusiasm. He has mastered the many dialects of this nineteenth-century text, making it easy to follow the story and appreciate Twain's humor. Fraley also does some serious verbal gymnastics by changing character voices a half-dozen times within a two-minute span. The music between chapters adds to the overall exceptional experience. R.I.G. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
  • AudioFile Magazine Twain's classic of American realism is given a serviceable narration by Garrick Hagon, who voices the many personalities and dialects clearly. What is missing is the sense of wonder the boy-narrator experiences from lying on a raft and looking at the sky, from noticing the beauties of the majestic river and its traffic, and especially (in Chapter 31) from his soul-shaking battle with his conscience, one of the great passages of world literature. Pace is another casualty. Hagon maintains a mostly consistent pace, which fails at times to capitalize on some of the dramatic moments. In sum, this is a respectful reading of a famously disrespectful book, so this unabridged recording is welcome but not definitive. G.H. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
  • People Magazine "The engaging adolescent style that Patrick Fraley adopts for Mark Twain's timeless hero makes this reading of the evergreen classic the best yet."
