Newman does great job, but this is abridged versio

Newman’s reading is rich and melodic, bringing this tale to life. However, I wish I had known that this is an abridged version. Probably great for young readers, as it skips some tangential segments, but ad an adult reader I missed the detail. I had to download a different version.

Paul Newman is reading it...’nuff said!

Both

Any additional comments?

In our politically correct culture, books that try to capture the times past are being dismissed. I’m glad that this classic allows us to see our humanity no matter what color our skin, and friendship spanning age.

Let Down

I expected a lot more given it's previous raves and reviews. I was let down and maybe that had to do with who I chose as the narrator,
