While the narration is a bit over the top (and grating at times: Aunt Polly), it really sets the tone for the tale.
This book is well written and great fun for all ages. Well worth a listen!

I had to read it for school and read 31 chapters this evening! Love the narration tho!!
I remember an adaptation of this being shown on the telly about 30 years ago and was keen to revisit this classic Twain novel. It follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer and his friends. The early chapters build the characters as young Tom gets up to a series of misdeeds and pranks before the main adventure unfolds. This builds up to a great ending. This definitely left me wanting to hear the sequel 'The adventures of Huckleberry Finn'.
The narrator does a great job delivering the tale with enthusiasm. He does fantastic work fleshing out the characters (with the hilarious exception of a Welsh man who sounds as convincing as Dick Van Dyke attempting cockney in Mary Poppins).
