Audible Editor Reviews

This very short story by Mark Twain details the lives of cousins George and Edward, who are raised together as foster brothers. Edward is as saintly as George is evil, but it turns out that being good ain't all it's cracked up to be. Jack Benson gives a delightfully charming performance. He captures Twain's tongue-in-cheek tone with a bit of quiet fun. With perfect pacing and just the right amount of twang, Benson brings this mini tale to life; it is effortless to follow Benson's words. At less than 15 minutes, this ironic audiobook is a pearl.
