Twain's fine book brings the mid 19th century Mississippi to life for the reader. The audio quality is poor and inadequate. The reader is old fashioned and flat. He's adequate for later, more introspective sections, but not up to the wonderful, hilarious early sections in which Twain learns to pilot the Mississippi.
Exceedingly fine book. Droll, exciting, educational. Wonderful character development. I enjoy Maturin's soliloquys. Gives insights into the ascendent British navy of the early 19th century. Provides an interesting contrast with the leadership models of today.
