Publisher's Summary

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, originally published in 1876, was the first novel written on a typewriter. Mark Twain's lively tale of the scrapes and adventures of boyhood is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls (especially Beck Thatcher) with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River.

Charming classic

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!

Classic Adventures of a Loveable Rogue

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).
