i am very grateful that i listened to the study guide of huckleberry finn before litening to the book; i understood so much more about huck's reasoning throughout the story; the study guide made the listening experience of "the adventures of huckleberry finn" a great pleasure

I found this book to be a phenomenal reference to the work. The depth and insight this work adds to the story really helps the literary student pick-up on the nuances that are so artfully layered in the work. If you were using Huckleberry Finn in any in-depth analysis, you would be foolish not to listen to this material first.
