Publisher's Summary

Huckleberry Finn is the original American maverick. He chooses the things that feel the most comfortable for him, regardless of what others may say. But when he is forced to flee his home, and comes into company with Jim, a runaway slave, his sound heart collides with his ill-trained conscience. Together, Huck and Jim journey down the Mississippi River, on an odyssey that has become one of the finest American Classics in the world of literature. This timeless novel is performed by award-winning Classic Tales narrator B.J. Harrison. It is an event you won't want to miss.

    "Masterpiece!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think this book is just perfect. It is too bad that it has gotten bad press over the years. If you read this book, you will see message Mark Twain is sending and in a way that is so masterful, it is stunning. I think this is just as relevant today as it was when published.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?

    The climax, which is so apparent, you will not miss it. It brought me to tears.


    Have you listened to any of B. J. Harrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Same as above, the climax.


    Any additional comments?

    Must read!

    "This is a hard book to read aloud."

    Imagine all the dialects and the different characters, and the characters (like Huck & the King & the Duke) who are pretending to be people they're not by using accents or variant dialects. B.J. Harrison does an excellent job of holding things together and making the narrative easy to follow. I have another Audible version of this book, and this one by Harrison is far superior. He is really good.
    The book itself is worth reading or listening to every few years, IMO.

    "Narration Made the Story That Much More Enjoyable"
    If you could sum up Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in three words, what would they be?

    A classic adventure featuring a country boy escaping the life he was pushed into, and meeting various characters along the Mississippi river.


    What other book might you compare Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to and why?

    Tom Sawyer! Because both are by Mark Twain, but in point of fact, this book did not really pick up until Tom entered the picture in the later quarter of the book.


    Which character – as performed by B. J. Harrison – was your favorite?

    Tom Sawyer. Tom was well written by Twain who used the character to bring out laughs from the situations that he and Huck find themselves in. B.J. Harrison does an admirable job with them, and the was able to include the comedic vocal styling needed to make this story come alive.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Having escaped reading this one, I finally decided at age 54 to listen to it. My extreme reaction was that I was surprised how bored I was by a large part of it, but I am glad I hung on, because there were scenes within the book where I laughed out loud, so in the end it was worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to hear this book and went hunting for what I hoped would be a good narrator. Reading comments on various choices, I went with this one, and I am not disappointed!

    "Loved it!"

    I have read this book several times before but never enjoyed it half so much as hearing it read/performed by this reader. Fantastic rendition of voices--I especially loved Jim. He was perfect.
    I will purchase other books by this reader, for certain.

    "Brought to life"

    A brilliant narration of the great story. Good character voices, and there are a lot of them - from the black slave, to rednecks, to gentrified Americans, to Midwesterners, to English and all in between.

    I have listened to this over and over again. Excellent!
