The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn Series, Book 1
Borrow Borrow

Originally published in 1826 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer recounts some of Mark Twain's own childhood adventures along the Mississippi River — and introduces us to some of the most memorable characters in all of American literature: Tom Sawyer, Tom's Aunt Polly, his favorite girl Becky Thatcher, and his mischievous friend Huckleberry Finn.

The spirit of this uniquely American book is ultimately tolerant and bold, down to earth and confident. It firmly established Mark Twain as one of America's finest and most treasured writers. Its characters have enchanted audiences for nearly a century and a half — and still do.

  • AudioFile Magazine Tom's adventures continue to be engaging, funny, innocent, and insightful all at the same time, and are full of great characters living their nineteenth-century lives with all of America's confidence and wide-open possibilities. I wish I could report to you that William Dufris, usually a very reliable narrator, is up to the task, but alas, I cannot. Dufris adopts a homey, meandering voice that mostly sounds tentative and doesn't match Twain's energy. He tries to liven up a bit during dialogue scenes, but the character voices he uses for Tom and Huck don't have much depth. This is a serviceable version of the book, and if you haven't read it in a while, it's worth a listen. But it's not the classic version it could be. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
