Run, skip, drive, walk quickly, swim or locomote to your nearest audiobook supplier and procure a copy of Patrick Fraley's sensational reading of this American classic. Touted on its packaging as a performance, as opposed to a mere narration, this rendition should be recognized as an audio classic in its own right. Fraley recreates Huck, Jim and the rest of the gang flawlessly, using an elastic voice, perfect diction and bubbling enthusiasm. He has mastered the many dialects of this nineteenth-century text, making it easy to follow the story and appreciate Twain's humor. Fraley also does some serious verbal gymnastics by changing character voices a half-dozen times within a two-minute span. The music between chapters adds to the overall exceptional experience. R.I.G. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
