    One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain inspired a literary revolution. The novel offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore the moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal; he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization".

    I have to reiterate the previous reviewer's comments. I've listened to over 25 fine books from Audible and this selection is by far the best. First, it is one of the greatest American novels ever written, by a master of the craft. Second, the narration in this version is so symphonic that it leaves all the other titles that I've enjoyed far behind. I think this is a great way to reintroduce oneself to this classic, historic piece of what is actually quite modern literature, and for the valuable perspective of how complicated "simpler times" could actually get.

    Of course, any time that has Tom Sawyer in it is bound to get delightfully complicated...

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Very enjoyable"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this LONG spy novel. Watching the characters develop over decades and through several suspensful situation was well done and very convincing.

    Wished it was even LONGER!
