His voice is that of an old man, with rather more of an accent that I'd expect. A ponderous text becomes more ponderous.
Much of the content isn't Twain -- the book is interrupted with endless extended footnotes and chapter introductions by the editors.
The opening "acknowledgments" section itself goes on forever.
