Mark Twain is one of the best writers in american history. Taking this classic story and adding the voice talents of a master like William Dufris makes this into magic.
The playful way that the story compares and contrastes the cultures of the past and present.
Hard to compare to other books. It is a contemporary critique of the Arthurian error. In contrast to The Once and Future King that has a more rmantic view of the ideals of the period.
The way the characters are personified and compelling a great match for Twains writing style.
When our Yankee Hero realizes his dream is lost, and how he describes what went wrong.
this one definitely shows mark twain's imagination. you think he had an imagination in the adventures of: tom sawyer or huckleberry finn, this one is off the charts. well done! they say charles dickens is the best england has produced, while being very imaginative charles dickens doesn't have the consistantcy that mark twain delivers.
This is the worst narrator I have listened to, actually painful in his exaggerations. I wish I had checked the other possible narrators for the book before purchasing this one, I really wanted to hear the story, but it was so truly awful I couldn't do it. Hate to buy it all over again with a different narrator. Ugh!
Just read the story, with dignity. Stop with all the silly exaggerated breathing and yawning and gravelly, bored voice. The interpretive garbage actually damaged the story line, made it hard to follow. Grrrrr.
I'm a web developer based out of Sacramento, I listen to books while I work, and love audible.
I honestly thought this was going to be a lame outdated children's story, since Twain wrote it I should have known better. It was a brilliant adult social commentary. If it was written today (which it honestly feels like it is) it would seem to be a satire on the Game of Thrones.
It was painfully boring.
Yes, I loved Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.
He over did it a bit.
All of them. I would prefer it if the book didn't exist at all. Once I start a book, I have to finish it and this was more like a chore than something enjoyable.
I am usually pretty easily entertained but this was almost an agony to finish it. I guess after his other books I just was expecting something excellent.
anything could have made it better, it was boring and, frankly, not a good book
not have written it at all, although it made a good movie.
did not like the readers voice
I think this is the worst book I have ever ordered from Amazon. If it was a paper book I'd send it back, I don't even want it on my Kindle
