Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Grover Gardner

Classics • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1876

Grover Gardner slips inside the humor and drama of this classic, casting a spell that vividly creates Twain's nineteenth-century setting for listeners. Whether dramatizing the exchange between two boys about to fight or that of clever Tom outwitting goodhearted Aunt Polly, Gardner highlights all the virtues of Twain's prose: that sly sense of humor, those deep insights into the human heart, whether glimpsed at a church funeral, a schoolyard, or a picnic gone wrong. As narrator, Gardner excels at pacing Twain's story to deliver maximum drama, while creating memorable characters through accent and tone. Gardner's ability to capture a specific sense of time and place while also conveying Twain's timeless insights about human nature make this production one the author himself could happily approve.
