Adventures of Huckleberry Finn


Read by Annie Coleman Rothenberg

(4.6 stars; 154 reviews)

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884) by Mark Twain is one of the truly great American novels, beloved by children, adults, and literary critics alike. The book tells the story of “Huck” Finn (first introduced as Tom Sawyer’s sidekick in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), his friend Jim, and their journey down the Mississippi River on a raft. Both are on the run, Huck from his drunk and abusive father, and Jim as a runaway slave.

As Huck and Jim drift down the river, they meet many colorful characters and have many great adventures. The true heart of the story, however, is the friendship between Huck and Jim. A constant theme throughout the book is Huck’s internal struggle between what he has been taught, that helping a runaway slave is a sin, and what he truly believes, that Jim is a good man and it couldn’t possibly be wrong to help him.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was unique at the time of its publication (1884) because it is narrated by Huck himself and is written in the numerous dialects common in the area and time in which the book is set. Although the book was originally intended as a sequel to the children’s book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, as Twain wrote Adventures of Huckleberry Finn it progressed into a more serious work. Twain’s views on slavery and other social issues of the time become clear through the words, thoughts, and actions of Huck Finn. The book has always been the subject of great controversy, and according to The American Library Association it was fifth on the list of most frequently challenged books in the 1990s.

this recording really helped me read the book, other wise i probably would have used spark notes which is ok but i still woulnt have read the book. Annie does a great job of reading the book, by speaking with the acents and differnt voices for differnt charaters, which made it really enjoyable to listen to.

a great book , and i have to say thé reading made it even better

a great book , and i have to say thé reading made it even better, the vernacular languages and the imitation of each accent made it so lively, great work thank you very much.

People that don't mean I have no clue who I was in my room for a long way in which a man with my family and friends of friends with a few weeks and months and it will take the bus and the rest of my life and the other hand is the only thing that would make it a lot of fun to use it for me and you

Thank you to Annie for an excellent reading. Loved it from beginning to end. I'm not from the US so I don't know how accurate the southern accent was but to me it was awesome. Thank you!

This story, told by young Huck Finn, takes you on an amazing, heart-wrenching, adventure down the Mississippi River on a raft with his new friend Jim. Together they venture to new adventures and people everyday on their why to who knows where.

Fun

(4 stars)

It was a near story that presents the troublesome situations Mark Twain's characters are known getting into. The reader was consistent and easy enough to follow, but her pacing and the recording could have been better.

Huck Finn

(3 stars)

The beginning of this book is kind of slow and boring. To me the book didn't start getting good until the end when things really started to unfold for Huck. Ending was great!

A perfect read

(5 stars)

Seriously excellent work. The book itself? I'd stop listening them inute Tom Sawyer shows up. He seems to drag the boys own adventure genre around with him, and it goes from being a serious work about right, wrong, and growing into manhood back to being a slightly silly caper story.
