Huckleberry Finn is the original American maverick. He chooses the things that feel the most comfortable for him, regardless of what others may say. But when he is forced to flee his home, and comes into company with Jim, a runaway slave, his sound heart collides with his ill-trained conscience. Together, Huck and Jim journey down the Mississippi River, on an odyssey that has become one of the finest American Classics in the world of literature. This timeless novel is performed by award-winning Classic Tales narrator B.J. Harrison. It is an event you won't want to miss.

A brilliant narration of the great story. Good character voices, and there are a lot of them - from the black slave, to rednecks, to gentrified Americans, to Midwesterners, to English and all in between.
I have listened to this over and over again. Excellent!
I think this book is just perfect. It is too bad that it has gotten bad press over the years. If you read this book, you will see message Mark Twain is sending and in a way that is so masterful, it is stunning. I think this is just as relevant today as it was when published.
The climax, which is so apparent, you will not miss it. It brought me to tears.
Same as above, the climax.
loved this book. loved the performance. bj Harrison was excellent. much better than Alan munro
"This is a hard book to read aloud."
Imagine all the dialects and the different characters, and the characters (like Huck & the King & the Duke) who are pretending to be people they're not by using accents or variant dialects. B.J. Harrison does an excellent job of holding things together and making the narrative easy to follow. I have another Audible version of this book, and this one by Harrison is far superior. He is really good.
The book itself is worth reading or listening to every few years, IMO.
The narrator does an excellent job with the dialects and the various characters. Good "read."
I have read this book several times before but never enjoyed it half so much as hearing it read/performed by this reader. Fantastic rendition of voices--I especially loved Jim. He was perfect.
I will purchase other books by this reader, for certain.
"a classic "
great story and narration. will take you back as if you are with huck while he tells it.
