The reader hasn't a clue. I gave up listening after twenty minutes.
He can't read.
Mark Twain's writing.
"You couldn't PAY me to listen to this again"
PLEASE do not buy this. I rarely leave reviews, and even more rarely do I leave bad reviews, however, I felt it my duty to warn others. The stories are WONDERFUL, the reading is even worse than dreadful. I am quite certain the narrator hadn't read any of the stories before he started reading, and I'm pretty sure he recorded the whole thing in one take. The narrator can be heard from time to time either eating or chewing gum, drinking and you can always hear when he clicks the mouse to scroll down as he reads. When I purchased this book I paid about $2 and thought how bad can you mess up Twain... I soon found out. You can keep my $2, "you pays your money, you takes your chances" but I want my 1hr 33mins back.
