THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Elijah Wood

Classics • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1850

Elijah Wood’s performance of THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is my nominee for the Narrators’ Hall of Fame. Wood’s unself-conscious reading doesn’t sound like a reading at all. He creates an entire world filled with people who cross class and color lines. His accents range from British to faux-British to all manner of regional affectations, twangs, and drawls. Wood’s delivery makes Mark Twain’s delicious wit and twisty language sound completely natural, especially as Huck invents plausible words to suit the moment. The journey down the Mississippi with Huck and Jim is pure pleasure, as the boy who won’t be “sivilized” and the runaway slave encounter scoundrels, slip out of scrapes, and invent outrageous tales. The listening couldn’t be better if Huck read the story himself. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2012 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2011]
