    This is the story of a boy's adventures growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi river over 100 years ago. The cheerful, adventurous hero plays truant to form a pirate band and, together with his best friend, Huckleberry Finn, finds fun, excitement, and buried treasure along the shores of the great river.

    Overall

    This is a well-done reading of the classic story, with a lively narrator doing a good job with the various voices, young and old, male and female. In the version we downloaded, many of the chapters have a skip at the very end -- the next chapter begins by cutting off the last word or two of the chapter just ending. Though not critical, it's a bit annoying. Still worth listening to, though.

    I'd forgotten what a charming fellow our friend Tom was, and the story brought him back to the top of my mind. My 9-year-old has thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story as well. I think that Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn lend themselves to audiobooks, as reading all the Mississipi accents the way Twain wrote them can be a bit of a chore, especially for the younger set, who have no trouble understanding and following the audiobooks. When she's older, my daughter will have some foundation upon which to build her reading.
