Tim Behrens's 1990 reading is a fully voiced, virtuoso performance. His Huckleberry is young and believable. His pacing is good, as is his understanding of the novel, and his sincerity in transmitting it excites the listener. When Jim scolds Huck for playing a humiliating practical joke on him, the listener feels shame and embarrassment for Huck. Behrens' acting ability carries the day, and we are treated to the feast of voices and dialects that make up, in large part, the magic of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Tim Behrens's versatile and inspired performance captures the soul of this great novel. P.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 92]
