    The idealized childhood of this fictional hero, based on Mark Twain's own early life, is filled with robust good humor and high-spirited adventures. Yet there is also an in-depth experience of the central South of the 1840s. While romping through fun-filled fantasy, Tom Sawyer shows how morally complicated real life can be.

    Andrea says: "Well worth a listen"
    "Outstanding Reading of a Classic"
    Overall

    If you are an adult like me, it's been a while since Tom Sawyer was on my required reading list. When my 12 year old was assigned the book as summer reading, I thought it might be fun, helpful and different to find an audio version to listen to as he followed the text, and then I could listen to it as well in the car as I drove to and from work. What I found was that Patrick Fraley's dead-on voice characterizations of Tom, Huck, Aunt Polly and especially Injun Joe made this work come alive for both of us. The book is as funny as it must have been when it was published, and the creative reading by Fraley adds immensely to the overall understanding and entertainment value of this classic. An added benefit was the fact that the reading helped my 12 year old get through the Southern dialect which would be otherwise difficult reading. What a gem of an audio work!
