Richard Henzel, a noted interpreter of American writer Mark Twain’s oeuvre, gives an energetic performance of the classic novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. He captures the nuances of the different speech patterns and dialects of each character, creating the perfect atmosphere for rollicking adventure. Set in the American South, when slavery was still legal, the story follows Huck Finn, a boy with an abusive father. He runs away and encounters a slave named Jim. Together they journey down the Mississippi River, and Huck begins to reexamine his understanding of the world.

Much more - Henzel nailed they accents and nuances of the writing much better than my imagination would have.
Many, many -
Richard Henzel is incredibly talented. He nailed all the voices. From his worldly-naive boy Huck to his bass-toned, good, kind, long suffering Jim and all the saints and a scalawags in-between, Henzel treats us to life on the Mississippi as Mark Twain surely intended.
The moment when Huck has to decide whether the help Jim or turn him in.
This is a fun book. If anyone missed out on reading it when they were a kid, get it now. It would probably be more enjoyable for an adult. Its not childish and gives a cultural, historical presentation of life in that time era. I laughed, sometimes out loud, or at lease smiled all the way through with the antics of Huck Finn.
