Earphones Award Winner (AudioFile Magazine)
Audible is pleased to announce the premiere of an exciting new series, Audible Signature Classics, featuring literature’s greatest stories, performed by accomplished stars handpicked for their ability to interpret each work in a new and refreshing way. The first book in the series is Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, performed by Elijah Wood.
Ernest Hemingway said, “All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn". One hundred years after its author’s death, this classic remains remarkably modern and poignantly relevant. In this brand new edition, Elijah Wood reads Huck in a youthful voice that may be the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent. His performance captures the excitement and confusion of adolescence and adventure. Best of all, the immediacy of Wood’s energetic reading sweeps listeners up and makes them feel as though they’re along for the ride, as Huck and Jim push their raft toward freedom.
Stay tuned for more one-of-a-kind performances from actors Kenneth Branagh, David Hyde Pierce, Leelee Sobieski, and more, only from Audible Signature Classics.

It ain't Frodo
No question this is a classic American novel. You will not believe how Elijah Wood brings the story to life.
Good voice but needs work as a voice actor
Elijah Wood has a pleasant enough voice and when a specific person is talking...such as Huck or Jim, he’s not too bad. That said, when it becomes a back and forth dialog which this book has a lot of, he sometimes struggles. I guess I may be picking nits; I believe there is an art to voice acting and I think he can do better by working on it a little. The story is as I remember it when I read it as a kid and enjoyed listening to it this time around.
