Description-
  • Perhaps the best-loved nineteenth-century American novel, Mark Twain’s tale of boyhood adventure overflows with comedy, warmth, and slapstick energy. It brings to life an array of irresistible characters - the awesomely self-confident Tom, his best buddy Huck Finn, indulgent Aunt Polly, and the lovely, beguiling Becky - as well as such unforgettable incidents as whitewashing a fence, swearing an oath in blood, and getting lost in a dark and labyrinthine cave. Below Tom Sawyer’s sunny surface lurk hints of a darker reality, of youthful innocence and naïveté confronting the cruelty, hypocrisy, and foolishness of the adult world - a theme that would become more pronounced in Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Despite such suggestions, Tom Sawyer remains Twain’s joyful ode to the endless possibilities of childhood.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Tom's adventures continue to be engaging, funny, innocent, and insightful all at the same time, and are full of great characters living their nineteenth-century lives with all of America's confidence and wide-open possibilities. I wish I could report to you that William Dufris, usually a very reliable narrator, is up to the task, but alas, I cannot. Dufris adopts a homey, meandering voice that mostly sounds tentative and doesn't match Twain's energy. He tries to liven up a bit during dialogue scenes, but the character voices he uses for Tom and Huck don't have much depth. This is a serviceable version of the book, and if you haven't read it in a while, it's worth a listen. But it's not the classic version it could be. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
