Audible Editor Reviews

Dick Cavett performs this most well-known of Mark Twain’s books, the scathingly satirical Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which follows the titular Huck - first encountered in Twain’s earlier Adventures of Tom Sawyer - on his journey down the Mississippi and into the American south, where a variety of escalating incidents play into the novel’s central themes of race, racism, and self-identity.
Cavett’s performance is defined by a conversational tone which complement’s Twain’s own use of accessible language and colloquialisms to paint an accurate and sometimes damning portrait of a region experiencing an identity in deep flux. Cavett brings a lively comic energy to this high-action audiobook, as well as effectively emphasizing the novel’s serious social themes.
