Editorial Reviews

This less well known of Mark Twain's novels is a real find for fans because it includes Tom, Huckleberry Finn, and Jim. Narrator Norman Dietz draws each of the characters with distinction. His Southern drawl and delivery of the grammar of the time add authenticity. The three share many debates as they travel - hearing them make their points is fun. Tom Sawyer seems a know-it-all, at times; however, it’s as though Twain is speaking to listeners himself. His sometimes cynical views of politics, religion, and the world are humorous and spot-on even for today.

Publisher's Summary

Two of the greatest heroes in children's literature, Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, join forces in this classic tale from master storyteller Mark Twain. Tom and Huck are kidnapped by a mad scientist in a balloon-powered airship who plans to fly around the world then crash in flames - taking the boys with him. But when the madman falls overboard during a storm over the Atlantic Ocean, the youngsters are forced to use all their wits to save themselves from further perils aboard the runaway airship.

Twain must have written this when he was drunk

The story was going along pretty well, but was truncated about halfway through. The reader sounded really drunk most the time. It was almost a really great story, but apparently ol Sam got was drunk while writing it and got too tired right in the middle and crashed it before it was finished.
