The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain, Guy Cardwell, John Seelye I love The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn--it's my favorite book and no other book that I've ever read has even come close to it. I love the story, I love the characters, and I am completely in awe of Mark Twain's sharp wit, keen observation skills, and his phenomenal ability to write, all of which are on full display in this book. I've read Huckleberry Finn more times than I can count. This time I listened to it on audiobook, and it was narrated by William Dufris.

If you have not had the opportunity to listen to Huckleberry Finn as narrated by Dufris, you really ought to find a chance to do so. I didn't think I could love the story any more than I already do, but I was wrong! Dufris is the *perfect* narrator for this book, and he has breathed new life into it for me. For the first time in twenty, or twenty-five years I am actually finding myself *contemplating* the work again. Dufris's narration of Twain's words has peeled back layers of the story that I never even realized were there! He's given me new perspectives on the characters and the world they inhabit in this book, and he has renewed my admiration of Twain's skill as a writer, an observer, and a commentator. Dufris's narration really enhanced this wonderful story, and did justice to this remarkable piece of literature.
