Summary

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.

Brought to life

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!

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.

Masterpiece!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn?

The climax, which is so apparent, you will not miss it. It brought me to tears.

Have you listened to any of B. J. Harrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Same as above, the climax.

Any additional comments?

Must read!

Still A Classic

This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid and since folks decided to ban it, I decided to read it again. It is a fascinating story.

There isn't much good in Huck Finn or Tom Sawyer except for their adventurous spirit. Twain does an excellent job in bringing that out.

The narration was excellent. I actually switched to this version back in about Chapter 4. I couldn't take anymore of the version I had initially begun with. This narrator did a great job with the characters and was very easy to listen to.

Wow

I haven't read this book since I was a kid and I somehow forgot what an incredible masterpiece it was. There is no other author like Mark Twain.

A real pleasure to listen to.

The different voices used for each and every character really made this story come alive!
