    "Well read, some technical issues"

    This is a well-done reading of the classic story, with a lively narrator doing a good job with the various voices, young and old, male and female. In the version we downloaded, many of the chapters have a skip at the very end -- the next chapter begins by cutting off the last word or two of the chapter just ending. Though not critical, it's a bit annoying. Still worth listening to, though.

    I'd forgotten what a charming fellow our friend Tom was, and the story brought him back to the top of my mind. My 9-year-old has thoroughly enjoyed listening to the story as well. I think that Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn lend themselves to audiobooks, as reading all the Mississipi accents the way Twain wrote them can be a bit of a chore, especially for the younger set, who have no trouble understanding and following the audiobooks. When she's older, my daughter will have some foundation upon which to build her reading.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "HAHA! Great narration..."

    This book would not have been so enjoyable to listen, if the narrator had been different. Too funny! I am just drawn in and can see Tom and characters in my mind, clear as day. I loved the stumble when it came to winning the bible. David and who?

    There are a few snipettes of the audio that are cut out. Someone wasn't watching what they were doing. But these can be skipped over. It would be nice to see an updated audio prepared. If this were a paper book, then the missing pages would be cause for return to the seller. Because this book is in the public domain, the text is easily found.

    If you want a funny story, the kind that are dismissed because "boys will be boys" then you should really enjoy this audiobook because of this specific narration.
