Elijah Wood is brilliant in this. Now I'm searching for other books narrated by him. This is a guy who can manage many characters, male or female, crazy or sane. He's magnificent.
I love Twain's writing, especially when it's Huck Finn telling the story. I have never liked the character of Tom Sawyer, however, since he's such a dork who thinks he knows it all. And it seems that in this story Twain lets Tom complicate things beyond any reasonable point of stupidity. Huck should have kicked Tom's butt and gone his own way.
Anything with Huck and Jim on the river. Jim's awesome!
First time I've written a review but had to because Elijah Wood was incredible. Wish he narrated more books. Had to read this book for book club & was not looking forward to it. Wood made it exciting & interesting & the different characters were so very well done.
Elijah wood was great, he really nailed the performance! I was skeptical at first but he has such a talent for narrating. Mark twain tells a humorous adventure, always a pleasure.
Elijah used different voices throughout and made it very funny and easy to understand. I would recommend this to anyone with trouble reading different dialects.
