The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn | [Mark Twain]

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

One of the greatest treats in all world literature, this masterpiece from Mark Twain is revolutionary. It offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore 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." This superb reading by Patrick Fraley is rich in the color and adventurous spirit of the Mississippi River.

    "Great story telling"

    Huck Finn is one of the greatest American novels and a brilliant satire. If you were forced to read it in high school and didn't like it, forget about that and give it a fresh look. The book is not only insightful, it is also a pleasure to read. (True the n-word is offensive, but just listen to Pap's rant about voting and you'll understand the the use of the word exposes the ignorance of the people who use it.) Many books have been written about the story, so I'll just say a few words about the narration. Patrick Fraley's narration is brilliant. He does the accents well without overdoing them. He can handle multiple voices within a scene. Most important he understand the humor of the book. He has a knack for comic timing that enhances Twain's humor and satire. And he can switch (as the book does) from funny to somber in a way that captures meaning.

    "Very Enjoyable"

    The narration was a little over-dramatic but I got used to it. I enjoyed the story very much.
