Reviews

Good, with a few issues

(4 stars)

Audio recording and sound quality issues prevent this from being great. Otherwise, a decent read.

Adventure of Huckleberry Finn

(5 stars)

Classic book read Well. I had a great time listening to it. Higly recommended!

(2 stars)

Sadly I was a little disappointed in this book. First of all, the readers do a commendable job, and I liked the southern accents which help a lot with the important immersion into the time and place of the story. But I just found the book rather boring - lacking much of the childish charm and humor of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". Tom is just also a much more charismatic character than Huck, and incidentally this book too gets a lot more entertaining when Tom comes in at the end. Most difficult of all though is of course the the ever present heavy racial slurs, abuse and stereotypes. And I can imagine it was a very emotinally difficult book for all the readers to record. It is very much a product of its time, and definitely not suitable for children without adult supervision to provide context and guidance.
