This audiobook was truly one of the best I have listened to. There were times when I thought there were two narraters. Kudos to Elijah Wood for not phoning it in and putting in the homework necessary.
Huck Finn has always been a favorite character for me, and Elijah Wood's performance is excellent, making Huck even more endearing,
He had a great voice throughout. It was clear which character was talking at all times. The accents were great as well.
Satirizing of Southern antebellum culture
The part where Huck pretends to be a girl.
The moment at the end where Tom Sawyer is on the edge of death and you find out he had attempted to free an already freed slave.
After listening to this book for 10 hours straight I swear I had a southern accent for at least two weeks after. Woods performance was just so great.
Elijah wood's performance was great. All the characters were well done. A good light listen.
Not necessarily however the performance brought the story to life.
Elijah brought the story to life with his talented voice performance.
Well worth the purchase and time spent listening
This is an excellent audio version of Huckleberry Finn. I thought it better than the print book. I really enjoyed Elijah Wood's narration. He did a superb job! I had no idea he could put on a southern accent so skillfully. The story is okay, not my favorite of Mark Twain's but does paint a picture of life along the Mississippi at the turn of the twentieth century. Overall, I'm glad to have purchased this audiobook and listened to Elijah Wood's portrayal of this legendary literary character.
It was very entertaining. I was engaged both with the story and the performance throughout the reading. Elijah truly did a remarkable job, especially with all the pronunciations.
I enjoyed hearing Elijah do all the different voices from the young Huck and Tom to the older Jim to the women's voices of the aunts. At times it really seemed like there was more than one reader. He did a great job. In addition, the story was just told very well and very smoothly.
This is my first performance of his I've listened to. I will definitely look for more.
No, since it is 10 hours long, I decided to listen a little each day as I got ready for work.
I would listen to it again in an instant. I had never read the book so I'm sure I'd missed something the first time through
Elijah Wood makes this so enjoyable
Yes I enjoyed the performance better than the book.
Trip on the raft downriver.
just as good as I expected
I thought Huck's and other characters attitude toward blacks disturbing.
I really loved this audiobook. The different voices of the characters really made it great to listen to. Very entertaining and wonderfully done.
The different voices for the characters.
The discussion of having snakes, spiders and rats with the "prisoner"
It was all perfect.
