Generations of readers have enjoyed the ingenuous triumphs and feckless mishaps of boyhood days on the Mississippi. This classic of American wit and storytelling introduced Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, the Widow Douglas, and many other characters to the world; including, of course, the boy who "was cordially hated and dreaded by all the mothers of the town, because he was idle and lawless and vulgar and bad - and because all their children admired him so," Huckleberry Finn.
"AVOID THIS VERSION"
This humorous and nostalgic novel takes the listener back to the carefree days of boyhood in Hannibal, Missouri, where Mark Twain grew up.
Just what did boys do in a small Midwestern town during the mid-1800s, a time when there were no televisions, no arcades, and no videos? They whitewashed fences, floated down rivers, traded marbles, formed secret societies, smoked pipes, and, on occasion, managed to attend their own funerals.
"It's Good to be a Kid Again"
With his uniquely expressive voice, three-time Academy Award winner Paul Newman vividly brings to life the exciting tale of one of America's favorite heroes. Young Tom Sawyer, full of guts and determination, takes us on amazing adventures that are both touching and humorous, and at their most compelling in Newman's warm and charismatic performance.
"Excellent and Entertaining"
Twain called this story a "hymn to boyhood". Loved by all ages in countless renditions in all media. A classic piece of American literature.
"a good classic"
The idealized childhood of this fictional hero, based on Mark Twain's own early life, is filled with robust good humor and high-spirited adventures. Yet there is also an in-depth experience of the central South of the 1840s. While romping through fun-filled fantasy, Tom Sawyer shows how morally complicated real life can be.
"Well worth a listen"
A pillar of American literature, Mark Twain's prototypical coming-of-age introduces the iconic Tom Sawyer and his best friend Huckleberry Finn. Tom's panache for mischief and unyielding desire for adventure commonly leads him into trouble, but quick wits and a smooth tongue always navigates him to safety. When Tom and Huck witness a murder and the culpable Injun Joe escapes justice, Tom, who testified against the bandit, is left to wonder how he will get out of yet another bind.
The name "Tom Sawyer" is synonymous with the adventures of boyhood. Bold and clever, Tom gets into and out of trouble with an ease many listeners will envy. A story beloved by children, it also has relevance for adults. Twain's beloved classic of growing up in Midwest America is as popular today as when it was first published in 1876.
"Nostalgic fairy tale, but at times quite dark"
This is the hilarious story of the American Everyboy. Join the society of such unforgettable characters as the miscievous Tom, kindly Aunt Polly, the heart-stoppingly beautiful Becky Thatcher, the malevolent Injun Joe and a free-spirited young lad by the name of Huckleberry Finn.
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.
First published in 1875, this classic excursion into Mark Twain's Mississippi River country will lighten your heart even today. The characters themselves - Tom's Aunt Polly, his friends Becky and Huck, even Injun Joe - evoke nostalgia for a simpler, more rural lifestyle. Mark Twain describes a people, and a place, full of affection, wit, and adventure... where a dark summer night in a graveyard searching for black cats, or even getting lost during a cave exploration, can be a truly exciting and fulfilling experience.
"kids loved it"
This is the story of a boy's adventures growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi river over 100 years ago. The cheerful, adventurous hero plays truant to form a pirate band and, together with his best friend, Huckleberry Finn, finds fun, excitement, and buried treasure along the shores of the great river.
"Well read, some technical issues"
Perhaps the best-loved 19th-century American novel, Mark Twain's tale of boyhood adventure overflows with comedy, warmth, and slapstick energy. It brings to life an array of irresistible characters - the awesomely self-confident Tom, his best buddy Huck Finn, indulgent Aunt Polly, and the lovely, beguiling Becky - as well as such unforgettable incidents as whitewashing a fence, swearing an oath in blood, and getting lost in a dark and labyrinthine cave.
"Tom Sawyer brought to life!"
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer depicts the life of an imaginative, troublesome boy in the American West of the 1840s. The novel is intensely dramatic in its construction, taking the form of a series of comic vignettes based on Tom's exploits. These vignettes are linked together by a darker story that grows in importance throughout the novel - Tom's life-threatening entanglement with the murderer Injun Joe.
"Great book, poor narrating"
Tom Sawyer emanates self-confidence wherever he goes. With his buddy Huck Finn, pretty Becky Thatcher, cantankerous Aunt Polly, and a host of others, let's begin a journey to the time of riverboats, fishin' holes, and midnight grave robbers. Each character is brought to life through the sparkling narration of B.J. Harrison.
This is the classic story of a boy's adventures growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi river over a hundred years ago. The cheerful, adventurous hero plays truant to form a pirate band and, together with his best friend, Huckleberry Finn, finds fun and excitement, and buried treasure, along the shores of the great river.
Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is an excursion into boyhood, a return to simple, rural Missouri world of Tom Sawyer, his friends Huck Finn, Becky Thatcher and Aunt Polly. It is a world of summertime and hooky, of pranks and punishments, of villains and adventure, seen through the eyes of a boy who might have been the young Mark Twain himself.
"MOST OF THE BOOK IS MISSING!!!"
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, originally published in 1876, was the first novel written on a typewriter. Mark Twain's lively tale of the scrapes and adventures of boyhood is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls (especially Beck Thatcher) with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River.
Tom Sawyer does not like school. He does not like work, and he never wants to get out of bed in the morning. But he likes swimming and fishing, and having adventures with his friends. And he has a lot of adventures. One night, he and his friend Huck Finn go to the graveyard to look for ghosts.They don’t see any ghosts that night. They see something worse than a ghost – much, much worse.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is one of the best-loved children's classics of all time, treasured by adults and kids alike. Join Tom on his island adventure with Huck and Joe Harper, his first kiss with Becky Thayer, and his witnessing of his own funeral. This audiobook should have an honored place in any child's library.
