The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn | [Mark Twain]

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

This could very well be the definitive American novel. A great success since it was first published. Required reading. Great fun.

    "A question of pace (or lack thereof)"

    A classic book, deservedly so, but let down by narration that has the pace of a slow moving river. It may be a mood thing. Eventually I had to stop listening as I found it frustrating.



    The narrators voice is lovely and the accents all sound to this Brit to be authentic deep South US. I just couldn't bear the hesitations and gaps and general sluggishness of it all. There are also one or two repeat starts to sentences which the editor has failed to notice.

    "Huckleberry Finn-brilliantly read"

    I really enjoyed this book not just because of the obvious quality of the literature but the due to the superb narration. The reader, Jim Donaldson does such great voices in the wonderful dialect that it makes you just want to keep on listening. A really charming read.

    I Highly recommend this book.

    It was a little a hard to understand the speaker at times, but enjoyed his accents.

    "Don't love the narrator"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I don't know if we'll finish it. I got it to listen with my kids who usually love listening to books. However, the uneducated language along with the authors style of reading makes it pretty difficult for them to follow. This is a classic story that I love but I guess my kids just weren't ready for it!


    What didn’t you like about Jim Donaldson’s performance?

    Just don't love the twang in his voice, I know he's trying to work with the story but I'd rather just listen to a normal voice.
