    Huckleberry Finn is the original American maverick. He chooses the things that feel the most comfortable for him, regardless of what others may say. But when he is forced to flee his home, and comes into company with Jim, a runaway slave, his sound heart collides with his ill-trained conscience.

    Story

    In his first novel to follow the publication of his enormous success, The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck's vision comes wonderfully to life in this imaginative and unsentimental chronicle of a bus traveling California's back roads, transporting the lost and the lonely, the good and the greedy, the stupid and the scheming, the beautiful and the vicious away from their shattered dreams and, possibly, toward the promise of the future. This edition features an introduction by Gary Scharnhorst.

    This 1936 novel—set in the California apple country—portrays a strike by migrant workers that metamorphoses from principled defiance into blind fanaticism.

    In awarding John Steinbeck the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Nobel committee stated that with The Winter of Our Discontent, he had “resumed his position as an independent expounder of the truth, with an unbiased instinct for what is genuinely American."

    Sixteenth-century Spanish gentleman Don Quixote, fed by his own delusional fantasies, takes to the road in search of chivalrous adventures. But his quest leads to more trouble than triumph. At once humorous, romantic, and sad, Don Quixote is a literary landmark. This fresh edition, by award-winning translator Edith Grossman, brings the tale to life as never before.

    Peter Y. Chapman says: "Masterpiece - in literature and narration!"

    A classic from Mark Twain. Two boys (one a prince, the other a pauper) exchange identities, and each finds a great learning adventure in Henry VIII’s England. Veteran actor Chris Hendrie brings the vivid characters to life with the insight and humor that only Twain’s genius can inspire.

    Francis Lundy says: "good story, horrible performance"

    Story

    I like all Twain stories but the performance on this was horrid. the recording was so poorly spliced together that out sounded ridiculous. In every 15 sentences or so there is a word or three that are so obviously spliced in that it sounded like a completely different reader. And the way this guy voices Henton is just creepy and perverse.

    Alan Munro's reading is absolutely horrible. He puts emphasis on the wrong words, pauses for no reason, couldn't follow the story. Just a waste of money.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.
