by | Read by Garrick Hagon

Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1876

Among the many versions of Twain's novels and stories, this two-cassette abridgment stands out for Garrick Hagon's appealing storytelling. Hagon lays out a well selected sequence of scenes and familiar episodes in an intimate performance. His narrative rhythm is exceptional, creating a style that draws listeners in and holds their attention. Characters are given good vocal color, but never overdone. Aunt Polly, Tom, Huck, and all the characters become part of a wonderful whole. A great choice to introduce Twain and enjoy a particularly fine performance. R.F.W.
