Publisher's Summary

Not satisifed simply reliving his adventures down the river with Huck and Jim, Tom Sawyer finds himself thirsting once again for adventure and excitement. So, when Tom, Huck, and Jim are abducted as unwitting passengers aboard a hot-air balloon set to circumnavigate the world, Tom takes the opportunity to bask in the excitement of unplanned travel. Throughout their travels across the ocean, through the deserts of Africa, and even a visit to the Sphinx, Tom, Huck, and Jim experience the wider world through the colorful lenses of Mark Twain's most enduring characters.

This lesser-known third novella of Twain's Tom and Huck Series is a delightful, if unusual, addition to the cannon. Told in Twain's inimitable style, Tom Sawyer Abroad picks up where The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn leaves off, and takes you in an entirely different direction.

    "Entertaining but......"

    I am a huge fan of Mark Twain and his colorful writing style that paints a caricature of people and life at that time in rural America. This book was quite adventurous and faster paced than his quintessential more well known works, like the Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. I guess I preferred the stories set in the Missouri river region over this setting, and The final Chapter ended rather abruptly without enough development.

    The performance was solid, with the cadence an accent very accurately developed. My only dislike was that the narrator performed Tom Sawyers voice a bit too feminine and I kept having to remind myself that it wasn't a female character who just showed up.

    But, if you are like me and want to read or listen to all the works of a favorite author, even if just for comparison sake, it's worth the time invested.
