(4.6 stars; 82 reviews)

Tom Sawyer Abroad is a novel by Mark Twain published in 1894. It features Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in a parody of Jules Verne-esque adventure stories. In the story, Tom, Huck, and Jim set sail to Africa in a futuristic hot air balloon, where they survive encounters with lions, robbers, and fleas to see some of the world's greatest wonders, including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, Detective, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn. (Summary by Wikipedia)

John makes the book what it is. His rendering of the boys and particularly Jim, is just magical. A fun-filled ride in a balloon craft, leads to lots of iinformation and adventure. Loved it.

Hilarious and Entertaining

(5 stars)

I love when Tom and Huck argue about things like the map vs the land seen from the balloon, or balloon vs the flying horse.

(4 stars)

very well read. each character has got their unique sound/dialect, so the reader can understand and visualize the story. best if 'read' in chronicle order.

Really well read, but the story has not aged well.

It starts well, with a burst of steampunk as Tom steals...well...borrows, a zepplin. He then travels to Egypt and sees its wonders. The problem is that you, having been exposed ot television, know all about the wonders, and there's no real plot lying under that cavalcade of wonders (which you, the modern reader) have already seen.
