The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is not only a classic of American Literature, it's also an abiding favorite.
Why? Well initially, because its so much FUN! Which is the first reason you should buy my audiobook. Comedic performance is what I do best and Mr Twain provides plenty of great material to "riff" on. But this is not Animal House humor. It is gentle, whimsical and insightful. That's the humor. The adventure is heart pounding excitement!
Secondly, it's educational (now, don't be "skerd" -remember its FUN first!). A unique and vivid experience of mid 19th century American culture is gained while you listen.
Thirdly, its a great treat for the whole family. On those long road trips -or daily shorter commutes (the novel is ideal for listening to in short segments)-The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Narrated and Performed by Michael Beattie-can be a shared family experience that will spur thought, reflection and great conversations. This new, unabridged recording doesn't "politically correct" the story. It is recorded as written by the author -with all the warmth, humor ...and innate racism of the period intact.
