The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Gelesen von John Greenman

(4,704 Sterne; 2018 Bewertungen)

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (published 1876) is a very well-known and popular story concerning American youth. Mark Twain's lively tale of the scrapes and adventures of boyhood is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls, especially Becky Thatcher, with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River.

One of the most famous incidents in the book describes how Tom persuades his friends to do a boring, hateful chore for him: whitewashing (i.e., painting) a fence.

This was the first novel to be written on a typewriter.

The Voice of Mark Twain Himself!

(5 Sterne)

Wow! This guy is Amazing! A family member and I are of the opinion that this dude is Mark Twain himself! Just listen to how he reads Mark Twain's stories and you'll see what I'm talking about! Thank you to everyone who had anything to do with this production. In case you can't tell from my copious use of exclamation marks, this is an experience that fondly stays with you even months after listening to it. It is remarkable how well Mark Twain succeeds in bringing his works to life with LibriVox! ;-)

The narrator is amazing, he gives life and personality to every character in the book, he brings Tom Sawyer to life in anyone's imagination everytime he reads his words. The book itself made me have fun, it made me feel like I had the adventures the boys had, like I was a friend that ran alongside them. Really fun and light-hearted, it will make you feel like a kid.

I love this book!!

Well read. I am from Germany and understood every word! Thanks you for reading this book in such a beautiful way. And the story is really interesting. In my Generation we had a lot less freedom as kids. I don't know whether this was a good thing or a bad one.

Timeless Classic

(4,5 Sterne)

Twain caputures and provides his readers an era where curiosity and adventure ran rampant through young boys and girls minds... However other aspects, in particular slavery and labeling, serve to remind us of how narrow our minds can develop. This provides an learning opportunity for our younger readers.

Simple and yet extraordinary

(5 Sterne)

Simple story about the everyday happenings of a boy's life. It was well read and narrated. The story is ineffable and the conclusion is so meaningful and pragmatic. Mark Twain is without a doubt a greatest American novelist. We all owe him for this masterpiece.

Fantastic classic by Mark Twain. Even a great film rendering, while it would surely be enjoyable, could not ever do it justice because it would lack much if not all of the charming narration. Audiobook well read.

Good work!!!

obviously, it was already a very good book but the way John Greenman narrated the book it was more better. Heads off!!! to John Greenman, well done! -Abhishek Baruah (a reader of this book)
