A Signature Performance: Elijah Wood becomes the first narrator to bring a youthful voice and energy to the story, perhaps making it the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent.

The engaging narration makes this book a pleasure to listen to. I only wish Elijah Wood had read it more slowly, or at least made longer pauses. Nick Offerman narrating Tom Sawyer was perfect, but for this book Elijah was too quick. I listen during my car commute, and had to set the audio speed to 0.75x for words to sink in better while staying alert on the road.

Although I bought the e-book version too, I never read it and ended up listening to this audiobook, which I found less daunting. I am a slow reader and listener, but after a few months of intermittent listening in my car, I finally finished it!

I have already read books like "Economics in One Lesson" and "The Revolution", but this book was way more thorough and also appealed to my former left / center-left leanings. I especially enjoyed the original and creative solutions such as Swiss bomb shelters, the "military olympics", or how animals in some parts of Africa are protected thanks to private land ownership. I now have a much deeper understanding about the world's main issues. Would definitely recommend for any new libertarian.
