Publisher's Summary

Young Huck is an industrious, fiercely independent boy who escapes his abusive, drunken father and sets out on an unforgettable journey down the Mississippi River. Enjoying his freedom, he befriends a kindhearted slave named Jim, whose suffering teaches Huck powerful lessons about racism, personal liberty, and the complexities of life. Revolutionary for its realistic dialogue and uncompromising plot, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is arguably the greatest of all American novels, and a powerful sequel to Mark Twain's lighthearted classic, Tom Sawyer.

Audible Editor Reviews

Listeners are becoming more and more discriminating about the fidelity of the audio production, as well as the artistry of the performance. Norman Dietz's 1991 interpretation is at a listenable speed, and Recorded Books' acclaimed level of audio fidelity is definitely present. The immediacy of the voice produces an intimacy with the story. Dietz does not merely read; he interprets and gives life to the story. He portrays a very sympathetic and believable Huckleberry. His other vocal characterizations, however, particularly the real Phelps brother and the slave Jim, could be more realistic. Norman Dietz's professional performance offers us interpretive substance through his credible and kind Huckleberry.

Entertaining

Certainly it's not a beacon of truth. But it wasn't meant to be. It's fun, it's funny, it's a great story. The narrator does a fine job with the voices.
