The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg | [Mark Twain]

The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg

In one of Mark Twain's most biting social satires, the allegedly pious town of Hadleyburg has its moral character put to the test. When a sack purportedly loaded with gold is offered to one citizen in return for a good deed done long ago, the upright citizens of Hadleyburg learn a lesson in humility as, one by one, their greed bubbles to the surface.

    "Twain Uncorrupted"

    A cleverly contrived plot in Twain's familiar fable style makes "Hadleyburg" a worth while visit. The story is filled with twists and interesting "what-if" situations. As with many of Twain's morality stories, this one has plenty of cynical satire -- fun and sometimes funny.
    Norman Dietz does a great job with the read. He doesn't fall into the trap of trying to "sound" like Twain. Dietz is dynamic with out over acting.
