If Mark Twain were to do a recording of TOM SAWYER, it would probably sound much like Thomas Becker's reading for Commuters Library. Becker gives his narration a wise and wizened air as Tom and Huck run away to an island, play practical jokes, and witness a murder. There is pure innocence to the romance of Tom and Becky--and excitement as they wind through dark and endless caves, pursued by a killer. Becker manages to portray the dialogue in a way that is genuine, without any pretension or condescension. Stories for young readers--or adults, for that matter--seldom approach the adventure and the honesty of Twain's novel. Thomas Becker's performance is an ideal match. S.E.S.
