Narrated by Huck himself in his artless vernacular, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn tells of Huck’s voyage down the Mississippi with a runaway slave named Jim. As the two journey downstream on a raft, Huck’s vivid descriptions capture the sights, smells, sounds, and rhythms of life on the great river. As they encounter traveling actors, con men, lynch mobs, thieves, and Southern gentility, his shrewd comments reveal the dark side of human nature. By the end of the story, Huck has learned about the dignity and worth of human life—and Twain has exposed the moral blindness of the “respectable” slave-holding society in which he lives. Huckleberry Finn was Twain’s greatest creation.

In adapter and narrator Garrison Keillor’s own words: “This is an abridgement of Mark Twain’s book, keeping the parts I loved as a boy—Huck’s story, the big river at night, the boasting of the raftsmen, the Duke and the Dauphin, the lynching, the feud—and lopping off the last third of the book, where Tom Sawyer comes in and makes a big production of freeing Jim. I had Huck free him instead. If you enjoy the reading, I am sure Mr. Twain will forgive me.”

    " This book is a good read for Children and adults. However, it is not a light read and needs a bit of concentration to understand the Southern American Accents. Not really suitable to read on a train! "

    " Great book... till the ending made all the events in the story almost entirely worthless "

    " I enjoyed this audio version so much. Mark Twain is truly amazing in how he captures the simple vocabulary of Huck Finn from Northeast Missouri. The adventures that Huck finds himself in are incredible and I found myself chuckling outloud at many of the situations that Mr. Twain placed Huck in. This should be a top read on everyones shelf and if the book is difficult to read due to the "twang" then I would recommend on audio version of this great work. "
