What the Critics Say

"Johnny Heller's stellar narration makes this audio experience ALMOST like hearing Mark Twain himself. Twain's dialogue and descriptions of people and places along the Mississippi River come alive. Huck; the escaped slave, Jim; and Tom Sawyer are equally distinct and believable. Most compelling is hearing Huck and Tom return after hunting for Jim; their discussion sounds like listening to a real conversation. Heller's portrayal of Huck is especially amusing when he pretends to be a shy, soft-spoken girl in order to pry information from an unsuspecting woman. A vivid description of a thunderstorm demonstrates how well-delivered words can serve as sound effects. This is Mark Twain at his best on audio." (S.G.B.

    Story
    "Johnny Heller knocks another one out of the park!"
    Would you listen to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn again? Why?

    Yes, I probably will someday, simply because it is a classic and Johnny did such an amazing job with it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the language and the style. It's all so simple and lazy and down home. You have to get over the use of the "N" word and the treatment of blacks though. It is a relic of the time in which it is written and historically accurate but is still difficult to take.


    Have you listened to any of Johnny Heller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Absolutely. I am a huge Johnny Heller fan. He has been brilliant in every thing that I have ever listened to him in and this title is no exception.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy any other version of this audiobook. Johnny's performance is simply the best.

    "Great Story."

    I have been on a Mark Twain kick. I enjoy his humor and the way he wrote. Johnny Heller is hands down my favorite narrator. Well done all around.

    Story
    "A delightful adventure..."

    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Boy does this book bring back memories! I haven't read this book since I was a child, so I found it to be great fun to listen to. This is a book about a young boy and all his adventures as he runs away from his latest home. He finds out not all adventures are good , nor are they safe choices. This book would be great as a family story on a Sunday get together and / or for anyone young and old alike.

    The author, Mark Twain wrote a wonderful classic and I still enjoyed it again 40+ years later! The narrator, Johnny Heller did a great job with his delivery of this story. I was amazed at how authentic his multiple voices sounded. I particularly like the voice as Huck in the old man narration voice! Good job! I was really surprised at how much of this book I had forgotten about!
