    "THE Great American Novel - superbly rendered"

    Huckleberry Finn is one of those books that really cries out for an expert reading. Twain went to considerable effort to recreate the different dialects he knew as a boy growing up on the banks of the Mississippi. But who knows them today? What reader can really imagine how Huck's Missouri slang sounded - and how different it was from, say, the speech of a Negro slave? Those are just two examples among many variations - both social and regional - that have to be mastered by the actor who dares to undertake this masterpiece. And a great actor he must be to reflect not only the various dialects, but to differentiate the dozens of characters who populate this classic.
    Many have tried it, but - in my opinion - only Denny Delk's magnificent version rings absolutely true. The listener feels himself transported into the wonderful world of the American West around 1850 - with all its human passion, humor and adventure. Compared to the richness of this audible rendition the printed book seems one-dimensional. Hats off to Denny Delk for an incomparable performance!
