My teenage son and I enjoyed the two stories of the boys who turned out differently than might be predicted by their behaviour, especially when the bad boy "all of a sudden wasn't taken over by a terrible feeling of guilt."
I enjoyed the narrator, who provided a hint of the accent so that Twain's "twang" of the late 19th century American west and midwest comes through.
