    Huck Finn is a homeless rebel who loves freedom more than respectability. He isn't above lying and stealing, but he faces a battle with his conscience when he meets up with a runaway slave named Jim. Jim is trying to escape to a free state in the North while his owner wants to sell him to a slave trader down river. Huck knows that helping Jim will bring trouble, but can he turn in a man who only wants to be free?

    Great narration! In a novel that features vernacular speech and a lot of different (and in some cases archaic) accents, this narrator nails them all and makes them all understandable. He doesn't so much read the book as act it, with different voices for every character. Of course, the story is fantastic. If you've only encountered Huck Finn in the watered down abridged kids' versions, you'll love the satirical, sharp-edged, even snarky satire Mark Twain aims at religion, convention and so called "respectable people" as the uneducated and happily uncivilized Huck proves to be smarter, more humane and more Christian that the wide cast of characters he meets rafting down the Mississippi.

    Kipling creates a harmonious picture of India that unites the secular and the spiritual, the life of action and that of contemplation. It is the story of the orphaned son of an Irish soldier, Kimball O'Hara, who spends his childhood as a vagabond, traveling through India with an old Tibetan lama, enthralled by the "roaring whirl" of the country's colorful landscape and by the diversity of its people.

    Overall

    Equal parts travelogue, picaresque adventure and spy novel, this is great story tells how a plucky Irish orphan who has grown up in the Bazaars of India decides to accompany a Tibetan lama on a quest for a sacred river. On the way he becomes embroiled in British spy intrigue with Russia. I liked the narrator and thought he did well with different voices for the various characters. But it's the story that makes this a must hear. YOu will be transported to India of the 19th century with all its different cultures and peoples.
