This less well known of Mark Twain's novels is a real find for fans because it includes Tom, Huckleberry Finn, and Jim. Narrator Norman Dietz draws each of the characters with distinction. His Southern drawl and delivery of the grammar of the time add authenticity. The three share many debates as they travel - hearing them make their points is fun. Tom Sawyer seems a know-it-all, at times; however, it’s as though Twain is speaking to listeners himself. His sometimes cynical views of politics, religion, and the world are humorous and spot-on even for today.
