Couldn't get beyond the first chapter. Narrator's voice was great but the cadence of his reading style was very strange and unnatural. Did not sound like he was telling the story so much as just mechanically reading it.
Should have listened to the sample longer before purchasing audio book.

This was on a list of books my friend challenged me to read. I have been meaning to read Twain for years so this was the kick in the butt I needed. It's a historical classic. I might have enjoyed it more if I had read it instead of listened to it because I couldn't tell if the narrator made the story slower than it needed to be or if it's actually that slow. Either way it is funny to read about kids' adventures in a non-digital era.

It sounded as though the reader had an autocue which only displayed one word at a time. Not worth bothering with.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
The book is a true classic but, the narration is dire, so slow and dreary it drains all the fun from what is a story of boys having adventures in The Deep South of America
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?
Having read the books many times over the years I couldn't really pick one stand out part, it's all great fun.
Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Munro’s performances?
Not sure, I think next time I will pay more attention to the sample before I purchase and download anything he's narrating.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Sorry to say, no. He drains the life from the story.
Any additional comments?
It was cheap but, I'll still be going for a refund, I'll put the pennies towards something else.
