I really thought this would be terrible, but I was on for such a treat. Elijah Wood was absolutely exquisite. I've listened to this twice now. I'd love to hear him read other novels.
As for the story, well...its Mark Twain. Two chapters in this novel have to be amongst the best written pieces of American literature around.
I loved Elijah Wood's reading of this classical story.
Huck gets away of most situations thanks to his behavioral intelligence, a way to say that it's not all about education at school, it's about learning to live in real life and cope with people and it's about enjoying every bit of it. Yet, it's fun to see how what he learned at school eventually proves useful: reading and writing are the most important skills one can learn.
I read Huck Finn a number of times, but I never had a better time than hearing it read to me, at night, by Elijah Wood.
The best moment is when Huck has to decide whether to "go to hell" for his friend Jim.
One of the greatest anti-slavery novels ever, this is beautifully presented by Wood's performance.
Thank you Audible and Amazon. I will read it on my Paperwhite again this summer! But the Audible version was a wonderful experience.
this story is a classic, while it feels awkward listening to an audio in some parts is great for the most part. Elijah wood does a stellar performance
