I have ready everything Twain has ever written, but this narration spoiled it all. You can hardly understand what the narrator is saying -- he slurs the words into each other and lets the sentences run onto each other. I think the narrator underestimates Twain: reading him as if he had the voice of a "hick" when in reality Twain is teasing both the upper-class and the "hicks." I would not recommend this title and would return it if I could.
Loved this narration. At first I felt like he was struggling a little to differentiate the characters, but after about an hour or two, Elijah really hit his stride and he did a fabulous job. I hope he narrates more books.
I listened to this book spellbound over the course of about three weeks. It was wonderful. The book is well written and the narration is excellent. I would highly recommend it.
