    One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain inspired a literary revolution. The novel offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore the moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal; he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization".

    Overall

    This is the most satisfying purchase I have made from Audible (besides Persuasion read by Gretta Scacchi).

    I kept checking the credits to make sure that only one narrator was reading, Patrick Fraley has such a supernatural way of changing his voice. The voice he does for Jim is so completely different from Huck's voice that it sounds like two different readers. All the voices are fantastic. Patrick Fraley made me laugh out loud. The whole thing was delightful and I was sorry when it was over.
    The only small thing I can think of is that the music isn't dead on to my taste. They do short musical interludes in between chapters, just a few banjo lines or whatever, which I think is a good idea, but some of the composition wasn't exactly right for me.

    Overall this was a great listening experience. There are so many Huck Finn choices on Audible that I was worried I would choose the wrong one, but this was a real prize and I would recommend it to anyone.
