The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (version 2 dramatic reading)

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,438 Sterne; 73 Bewertungen)

Growing up on the banks of the Mississippi river, a mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer spends his days getting into one scrape after another. Tom's constant cleverness, superstition, trickery, and daring make him a handful to raise, and his Aunt Polly declares that she has "never seen the beat of that boy!" Tom is essentially good-hearted, however, but when he is witness to a horrible crime, his courage and integrity are tested beyond anything he ever expected. A note to parents: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is considered a children's classic, but contains racial slurs which, although "acceptable" in the time and place of the story's setting, will likely offend modern listeners. (Summary by Eden Rea-Hedrick)

Excellent

(5 Sterne)

Good reads all the way around.

Lawrence

(4 Sterne)

A really great book - perfect description of boyhood (perhaps as it once was and is no more), it's dreams, fantasies, superstitions, and just plain sweat and dirt. And Mr. Twain is just about perfect in voice - gently but clearly tongue in cheek, never mean and with allusions to scripture that are hilarious. As to the recording, the main reader is excellent with just the right cadence and tone. The dramatization, as it were, was painful - just awful.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

(4,5 Sterne)

I didn't know if I wanted to bother with this book, I'd read it as a kid and it was ok. I'm glad I listened. As an adult it was a different book. The readers are excellent. Even if you have read it before, listen again it's worth it.

Wonderful!

(5 Sterne)

I enjoyed this recording very much. My only comment would be that I could not hear Tom's part as well as the other characters. The reader did an excellent job with Tom's accent, the reading. The rest of the readers did a great job. Thanks for a great time.

(5 Sterne)

Dear Budoor, there are two "Joes" in this play. One of them seems to be native speaker. The other one - has not an _Indian_ accent. So, I don't really see whom you are talking about? ;)

(3,5 Sterne)

it was good, but Toms voice was a little muffled and some of the men had woman voices... But I enjoyed listening to it for school

Great Old Read

(4,5 Sterne)

Enjoyed the dramatization reading but some of the characters are very flat and don't speak with as much emphasis as others.

Very poorly done!

(1 Sterne)

Very poorly done! I find little worse than male/female parts read by the opposit sex. It spoils the whole book.
