Publisher's Summary

A classic from Mark Twain. Two boys (one a prince, the other a pauper) exchange identities, and each finds a great learning adventure in Henry VIII’s England. Veteran actor Chris Hendrie brings the vivid characters to life with the insight and humor that only Twain’s genius can inspire.

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.
