    The head of the Mortmain family is Cassandra Mortmain’s father, a writer suffering from writer's block who has not published anything since his first book, a hit entitled, Jacob Wresstling. Ten years before the story begins, he took out a forty-year lease on a dilapidated but beautiful castle, hoping to find either inspiration or isolation there; now, his family is selling off the furniture to buy food.

    A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: A Signature Performance by Elijah Wood to be better than the print version?

    Elijah Wood did a great job as Huck Finn. Really brought the character to life.


    What does Elijah Wood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved the way that each character had his/her own distinct voice. He really did a great job of speaking for the characters

  • The Screwtape Letters

    (1031)

    A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below". At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old Devil to his nephew, Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.

    Amazon Customer says: "So much truth, much of it scary."
    "Insider guide to the devil"

    Which character – as performed by Ralph Cosham – was your favorite?

    Loved Screwtape. Imagine my surprise when he always was looking out for himself. lol. There is a lot to be said about the human psyche in these letters that speaks the truth of human character.

    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob.

    Would you listen to Defending Jacob again? Why?

    Possibly, I thought it kept me guessing and guessing all the way through the book
