Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“His clear, distinct, resolute voice is filled with a liveliness…in a reading to be enjoyed by all ages.” VOYA
“In narrator Patrick Fraley, [Twain’s work] has found its most passionate voice. Many good unabridged readings of Tom Sawyer have already been recorded, but most are simply that: readings. Fraley’s performance is something more; in attempting to bring each character to life, his enthusiasm for the material is so palpable that the mere sound of his voice commands attention. A can’t-miss addition to all libraries.” Library Journal
“How fresh, how clever, how true [this reading] sounds. As narrator, Patrick Fraley has many virtues: a gift for voices and dialect, incredible and seemingly inexhaustible energy, an obvious and infectious delight in his material…he is never dull.” AudioFile
