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.

Abridged version left some holes

I skipped this book in the required reading list in High School, so I am now trying to fill the gaps left in my education. I really enjoyed the story, as I expected I would. However, since I read the abridged version, it wrapped up very quickly and left some unanswered questions. The narration was first rate, however.

just outstanding

I would listen to Garrison Keillor read the phone book, but his voice combined with Twain's classic prose and characterizations is just the highest listening experience a person could ask for. Keep reading, Garrison!
