Twain's classic tale of high jinx on the banks of the Mississippi has it all: mischievous boys, robbers, buried treasure, and a graveyard at midnight. Not to mention the irresistible title character and his adventurous sidekick, Huckleberry Finn. The novel's many melodramatic scenes give Mike McShane the chance to showcase his considerable ability to switch from jolly voices, for the likes of Tom and Huck, to menacing voices, for characters like Injun Joe. The more melodramatic the scene, the more McShane shines, as his voice conveys lurking danger or hilarious hysterics with equal ease. P.B.J. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
