Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. It’s the best book we’ve had.” Ernest Hemingway
“Patrick Fraley’s sensational reading of this American classic…should be recognized as an audio classic in its own right. Fraley recreates Huck, Jim, and the rest of the gang flawlessly, using an elastic voice, perfect diction, and bubbling enthusiasm. He has mastered the many dialects of this nineteenth-century text, making it easy to follow the story and appreciate Twain’s humor. Fraley also does some serious verbal gymnastics by changing character voices a half-dozen times within a two-minute span…[An] exceptional experience.” AudioFile
“A seminal work of American literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy…[This book] is essential to the understanding of the American soul.” Amazon.com, editorial review
