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

    I bought this for my granddaughter. She was having a little trouble with reading the book herself and I told her that a audio book might help her to engage in the story. She is 11. She really enjoys the story and follows along with the book.


    What other book might you compare The Adventures of Tom Sawyer to and why?

    I am not sure.


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

    I thought I lost the audio on the computer and I tried to find it with no success and downloaded another from a different company. I was so excited when I was able to recover this one because the narrator makes or breaks enjoying a audiobook. Curtis Sisco is an awesome narrator. Thank you Curtis:)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It keeps your attention.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for having this book available.

    What did you love best about The Adventures of Tom Sawyer?

    Curtis Sisco does a fine job on reading the classic Twain story. He captures the accents and tone of the area and time period. I haven't read the book since I was a child and found it to be surprisingly adult even though it was written for kids. Because of the price it's the perfect book to test if you are new to audio books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tom's aunt was my favorite because as a parent I sympathized with her every thought. The joy and pain of raising a child (especially one like Tom) is all worth it in the end.


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

    No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's been done before so wait to rent the DVD.

    I give every book and author a chance. I like books that grab you and evoke an emotional response.

    "Glad I finally read this to compare with Movie."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version.


    What other book might you compare The Adventures of Tom Sawyer to and why?

    Obviously Huckleberry Finn.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Better southern accent like the narrator I heard with Huck Finn. In these books, I want the narrator in the book to sound like Mark Twain.... :)


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

    Really just a fun look at boyhood and human nature during the time period in the South.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom Sawyer is a fun book, but Huck Finn is a masterpiece in my opinion.
