Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dominic Hoffman

Historical Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Dominic Hoffman narrates this reimagining of ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN, but this time Jim tells his own story. When Jim learns that he's going to be sold to someone downriver, he flees, leaving behind his wife and daughter. But he soon finds himself tangled up with Huckleberry Finn, a white boy who is always getting into the worst sorts of trouble. Jim is practiced at code-switching, changing his speech when he speaks to white people as a measure of protection. Hoffman's performance captures the varying tone of Jim's dialogue, highlighting the shifts in his vocabulary and rhythm. With its subtlety and attention to detail, Hoffman's narration reinforces Jim's character and narrative arcs as Jim takes back his agency in life. K.D.W.
