Young Huck is an industrious, fiercely independent boy who escapes his abusive, drunken father and sets out on an unforgettable journey down the Mississippi River. Enjoying his freedom, he befriends a kindhearted slave named Jim, whose suffering teaches Huck powerful lessons about racism, personal liberty, and the complexities of life. Revolutionary for its realistic dialogue and uncompromising plot, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is arguably the greatest of all American novels, and a powerful sequel to Mark Twain's lighthearted classic, Tom Sawyer.

"All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn." (Ernest Hemingway)
The work itself, and the reader are excellent. Problems with Audible version is a) sound quality is not very good, and b) there are no chapters in this version; just one long, 11 hour track.
Certainly it's not a beacon of truth. But it wasn't meant to be. It's fun, it's funny, it's a great story. The narrator does a fine job with the voices.
