This audio CD is not a reading of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, but a version by popular storyteller Jim Weiss. As always, he does a bang-up job of introducing the story for younger ones, retaining the flavor of the author's tone and language.

" The famous tale of a boy's life in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi River."

This is probable not the original by Mark Twain but a rewritten version that doesn't mention the funeral scene in with much detail.

A classic, I guess, but I don't see what is so loved about it. Perhaps if I was 12 when I read it I'd have felt differently, but in my early 40's, it just didn't seem all that good or important.

Tom Sawyer is a character who Twain developed so well, you fall in love with him on first meeting. This will remind you of your childhood and a great reminder that kids should be kids.

A wonderful old classic!

Hanging out with the town outcast, "running away" to a nearby river island, flirting with the girls, and basically driving the adults nuts, Tom Sawyer is 100% American boy. In him Mark Twain managed to capture the adventure, mischief, and complete innocence of childhood. If there's a child or adult out there who hasn't read it yet, give them a copy. It's quite simply one of the best kids stories ever told.

I forgot how great this book was as a kid. And as an adult, it was only better now that I could take something away from Mark Twain's take on society, sociology, and ultimately, how stupid we all are.^^ The endearing mischievous qualities of young Tom and his buddy, Huck are fun to read about no matter what your age, who--like all the characters--are as vivid and believable as real people. And there's no end to the insight this book can offer either, from childhood, to religion, to family, to roles in society and beyond. The only con, I'd say, in reading this wonderful classic is the slightly uncomfortable spots you come along. It was written in a time and place where racism was rampant, after all, and Twain does nothing to powder-puff this. But that's not hardly enough to dampen this wonderful book on the whole: I'd reccomend it for anyone.

Mark Twain's Classic story is a very entertaining read. This is a complete and unabridged version. I enjoyed rereading this one even more as an adult than I did in high school.

I figured out why they don't have kids read this book for school. They would think theirs is perfectly good English and there is no need to learn any.

A fun classic, but sometimes it is annoying to read about obnoxious little boys.
