Twain's classic novel describes the exploits of young Huckleberry Finn as he escapes his hometown and travels down the Mississippi River on a raft with escaped slave Jim. They encounter folks of all walks of life and repeatedly save one another from danger as they travel the American South. Eric G. Dove provides solid narration in this audio edition. Although his raspy, deep voice doesn't quite capture the youthful Huck and his naivet , Dove delivers a lively performance that boasts unique character voices and believable accents. And his pacing is perfect throughout: it's appropriate to the material and more than able to hold listener attention.
