    "Entertaining Classic"

    I decided to give one of the great American classics a try and I wasn't disappointed however I did expect more depth and substance. Overall it is an enjoyable boyhood story with a slow beginning, but the 2nd half picks up the pace and is worth the wait. The narrator does a solid job and I have no complaints about his performance. I would recommend this book to others, and I intend to follow up with Huck Finns book too.

    "Tom Sawyer"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer to be better than the print version?

    Equal. It was fun to hear the book read well with various characters sounding different


    What did you like best about this story?

    It represented what life was like for an energetic, imaginative kid at that time


    What does Matt Armstrong bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Accents and different voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really. I enjoyed the whole thing.

    "Great Story"

    This is a great story about a boy whose coming of age and discovering who he is and what he want's to be. Here we meet Tom Sawyer for the first time. He gets into trouble and begins to grow up. The narrator is okay. Elijah Wood who brought Huck Fynn to life would have been much better. In all this a great story to read and listen too.

    "Great Story - Narrator way too slow!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I had to speed up the rate at which this book was read, the narrator was painfully slow


    What didn’t you like about Matt Armstrong’s performance?

    Very slow and uncharacteristic of the story's youthful content
