What do you get when you combine classic travel literature with the inimitable wit of Mark Twain? The Innocents Abroad is a keenly observant, politically incorrect and often hilarious narration of the author's cruise to the Holy Land aboard a retired Civil War ship. First published in 1869 and the best selling of Twain's works in his lifetime, The Innocents Abroad will delight listeners with the celebrated author's musings on historic landmarks, cultural differences, and silly travelling companions.

I've never read any Mark Twain, so didn't know what to expect. The book is pretty entertaining, but is marred by the narration. The characterisation and accent sound convincing, but the narrator gives the impression of reading the book for the first time, many of the comic moments and sarcasm are ruined by inappropriate pauses. I would have to think long and hard before buying any more audiobooks read by this narrator.
