Terrible overacting by the narrators

I love Twain, but I could not get through a full chapter of this. The narrators were very hard to follow as they thought they were channeling Scout Finch, except for the overacting. I was not allowed to visualize the story in my mind, as it took all my effort just to understand what was being read.
The book may be terrific, but I won't know now.

completely overread

Would you be willing to try another one of Bobbie Frohman’s performances?


Any additional comments?

the southern accents were so drippy and wet that it was very difficult to understand what was being said.

The "dramatazation" of this book is terrible

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe but read it don't listen t to it.

What other book might you compare Pudd'nhead Wilson to and why?

Mark Twain & Huck Finn

What didn’t you like about Bobbie Frohman’s performance?

The main narrator with a fake accent was bad enough but the dialogue was "dramatized" with fake accents that came and went in the middle of sentences.

Was Pudd'nhead Wilson worth the listening time?

It is a good story but read it or maybe try a different narrator.

Twain is a Master!

How can You begin to review Twain? He lived and is buried in my Hometown of Elmira, NY. He was an Amazing Master of Tongue and Cheek Humor... and yet, everything, including this, Has lessons to be learned. Extremely well written... :-)
