This is what my son had to say after listening to this audio book: I am 10years old and picked this book for something to do on a long car journey. I picked it because I enjoy Will Wheaton's show on Youtube. He has a good voice and I liked his accents for the people in the story.
"MOST OF THE BOOK IS MISSING!!!"
I purchased the unabridged version (Wil Wheaton performing), I checked and checked that it was unabridged. But when I listened to it, more than half of the book is just missing.
Yes, but not this version.
Yes, disappointment that I haven't gotten my money back as I did not receive what I purchased.
"Wil Wheaton is perfect as a young rascal"
This is Tom Sawyer; anything less than a 5 is arrogant.
Wil Wheaton has made his name as an author and Interner pioneer--he understands the frontier, the tricks, the risks and whims and the smirk in his voice is perfect for another soft-hearted romantic charlatan, Tom Sawyer.
"Love Wil Wheaton but..."
I have loved everything Will Wheaton has narrated, up until this. His voice is to modern, too clean to make it believable. He does the accents, and they aren't bad, but the narration between the dialogue sounds so very modern that it takes you entirely out of the scene. Even the pacing is off.
Love you Will, but I think historical southern is not your strong suit.
