Mark Twain's engaging novel about Tom Sawyer, a young, mischievous boy with a nose for trouble and a heart of gold. One of the most enduring American novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a jaunty, free-wheeling story that exemplifies the life of a young boy on the frontier in the mid 1800s.

Equal. It was fun to hear the book read well with various characters sounding different
It represented what life was like for an energetic, imaginative kid at that time
Accents and different voices.
Not really. I enjoyed the whole thing.
Military history, Contemporary sci-fi/fantasy, Classics and Sport biographies ... in that order!
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.
The old great story ... good to hear again .... We have probably all read this when we were younger and it is really nice to listen to it performed and relive it all again
Yes. I like listening and re-listening to classic books to pick up on nuances missed before.
It's a classic.
Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn
Some scenes make you laugh.
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.
I had to speed up the rate at which this book was read, the narrator was painfully slow
Very slow and uncharacteristic of the story's youthful content
