Mike McShane, who played Muff Potter in the 1995 film Tom and Huck, is best known as a regular on the British improvisation game show "Whose Line Is It, Anyway?" McShane's satisfying and spirited performance of this great American novel would put a smile on Samuel Clemens's face. The story, told through the eyes of the titular runaway, is read with a respectful awareness of place and character, and a comedian's sense of timing. Most remarkable about McShane's reading is his rendering of the runaway slave, Jim, not as a mindless caricature, but as a strong, deep-voiced, and affectionate man on a quest, along with Huck, for hope and freedom.
