Classic tale. Unimpressive narration

A classic. The narrator often confuses who is talking, and this makes myriad of accents and characterizations a distraction more than an asset.

good story, horrible performance

I like all Twain stories but the performance on this was horrid. the recording was so poorly spliced together that out sounded ridiculous. In every 15 sentences or so there is a word or three that are so obviously spliced in that it sounded like a completely different reader. And the way this guy voices Henton is just creepy and perverse.
