We all know the most famous of Mark Twain's works.

Elijah Wood performs an excellent narration of Huck, Jim, and Tom.

Thoroughly enjoyed this title.

This performance is possessed of two primary benefits.

Firstly, the classic translation by Sir Richard Burton, for those of us who prefer the boldness of style of 19th century English prose. I think that style lends itself very well to these centuries old tales.

Secondly the narration by Philip Madoc is equally strong and very well suited to this style of text.

The knock against this is that it's too short. It's an abridged selection of just a few of the stories from the Arabian Nights.

I'd well wish for an unabridged performance of the Burton translation.

Until then, this is a good taste of it.
