The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the comic masterpiece of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, who trained as a river-boat pilot (from which experience he took his pen-name, Mark Twain). His most famous book describes a boy's journey down the Mississippi aboard a raft with the runaway black slave Jim. Their escapades in the Deep South before the American Civil War are a joy in themselves, but they also direct a searching light on a society where slavery and prejudice are taken for granted and civilization is hypocritical and corrupt.

a classic tale of growing up and adventure how could it be rated less than a five unless the reader was awful but he was delightfull i was caught up and transported to a time not my own and full of childhood exploration b4 tv and video games
Thinking because it was a classic, it would be a good audio for my 12-year-old son, and I had not heard it before. We stopped listening - as a fault of my own, I did not realize how the story was written. I would not suggest this for an adolescent unless you get the unabridged because of the language used during the time the book takes place.
This was my first original Mark Twain book. When I was a kid I used to listen for hours to the adventures of Tom Sawyer, but in adapted version. I now tackled the real literature and had high hopes. I was not disappointed!
Nicely narrated by Garrick Hagon, I finally understand why Mark Twain is a favourite with many throughout an extensive period of time!
