Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (version 2)

Gelesen von Mark F. Smith

(4,757 Sterne; 1027 Bewertungen)

In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain creates an entertaining adventure of Middle America in the 1800's - afloat on a raft on the Mississippi River. Huck escapes his civilized life when he arranges his own "murder" and turns back into the backwoods, downriver yokel he started as, and in the process springing a slave, Jim, from bondage.

Huck and Jim experience life as a series of tableaus as the river sweeps them through small towns on their way South. At each stop, Huck engages his talent for mixing fact with bald-faced lies to endlessly get himself out of situations... and of course, putting him into others!

Much has been written about the statement Twain is making about slavery in this book, but it's really secondary to the story. The facts of how black people were treated in this period give Huck and Jim their license for life on the run. Modern listeners will be intrigued by the unencumbered life of the pair; they make do with coffee, fish from the river, and little else (but of course, when they do need something extra, they don't mind helping themselves to it without recourse to money!)

Huck and Jim have run-ins with desperados and family feuds and even manage to get run down by a steamboat. The adventures ratchet up when they are joined on the raft by a self-proclaimed "duke" and a "king" - shysters both, who spend their time in figuring how to fleece the public in the little river towns. And when Jim is captured and threatened with being sent back into slavery, Huck enlists his old buddy Tom Sawyer in a frenzied, desperate, and terribly funny rescue.

I had to clip a lot of laughing from this recording at Twain's sly, catch-'em-when-they're-not-looking humor, but you can feel free to enjoy some good belly laughs at this crew of lovable rapscallions! (Summary by Mark)

Once Again

(5 Sterne)

Another fantastic story by one of the world's greatest storytellers,my hats off to you, as for the reader Mr. Simpson I have listened to your reads several times now, and I have concluded that everyone else should as well... you are a truly gifted reader that does justice to your subjects... than you for your time and efforts along these lines.

Huckleberry Finn

(5 Sterne)

This is the best book I have ever heard. tom sawyer is my favorite too but not as much as this one. I have both of these books on hand but the language in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn I could hardly understand what Jim was saying without the audio book so I searched for it and Mark Smith does a great job reading this and one of my other favorites the sherlock Holmes books. I like seven out of those books and they are a study in scarlet the sign of four the hound of the baskervilles the copper beeches the speckled band the red headed league well its all of them.

Stellar interpretation!

(5 Sterne)

Mark Smith gives life to Mark Twain's characters! It is hard to believe that one reader can portray each one so accurately. I felt like I was right there. Unavoidable use of the n-word. You can't change history; the story of young boys' adventures is set in such a time, and does not glorify it. Twain's landmark humor and his reflection of the mentality of his time and of humanity in general is both sharp and gentle at the same time. Thank you both - Mark Twain and Mark Smith!

Great book, great reader

(5 Sterne)

i tried listening to another version of this book before I found this one and WOW what a difference! The first version the reader was real quiet but must have been too close to the mic because his P's and B's popped really loud. I was listening through a large sound system and had go crank it to hear the voice, even with the bass turned all the way down he made my speakers POP POP! It was very irritating. Then I found this reader and he is amazing, a real joy and pleasant to listen to.

The reader brings a truly classic story alive

(5 Sterne)

Mark Twain new how to create really wonderful stories and magic the reader away on adventures where you lived and breathed along with the protagonists. The reader here was just simply wonderful making the whole story an experience to savour. I cannot give a better compliment than to say I did not want the tale to end.

The most strange but good book

(4 Sterne)

honestly there where a few parts I isn't I I I understand but most of it I understood it was a really good book especially with this person who is reading it but hopefully when you read this or let your children listen to the audio book don't let them get any ideas in their heads 😅.

great listen

(5 Sterne)

I spent so much money with a audable. I was told about this app and was sceptilxlxcal because I thought you got what you paid for. well this proved my thoughts dead rong. what a great job. thank you so so much for a great read threw. you really brought the story to life!

Commitment to Creativity

(5 Sterne)

This audio book has been the best I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Every character has a voice and personality given to them by the reader. I'm glad that I was able to read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn for the first time with the audio book. Thank you.
