Editor reviews

Dick Cavett performs this most well-known of Mark Twain’s books, the scathingly satirical Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which follows the titular Huck - first encountered in Twain’s earlier Adventures of Tom Sawyer - on his journey down the Mississippi and into the American south, where a variety of escalating incidents play into the novel’s central themes of race, racism, and self-identity.

Cavett’s performance is defined by a conversational tone which complement’s Twain’s own use of accessible language and colloquialisms to paint an accurate and sometimes damning portrait of a region experiencing an identity in deep flux. Cavett brings a lively comic energy to this high-action audiobook, as well as effectively emphasizing the novel’s serious social themes.


Huck Finn can no longer stand his life at home, so he fakes his own death. While camping, he discovers the runaway slave, Jim. Together, Huck and Jim travel down the mighty Mississippi River in a series of adventures with a cast of unforgettable characters.
