The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn offers both brilliant humor and tragedy as Huck and Jim explore moral dilemmas of slavery and freedom. Huck, the narrator, is shrewd, ingenious, and literal-he reports on everything he sees, which allows the listener to experience the hypocrisy of "sivilization."
Patrick Fraley's superb narration is rich in the adventurous sprit of the Mississippi River. It captures the world and people that Mark Twain knew and loved. Author and actor together provide storytelling genius, balancing youthful escapades against an important social message.
