The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
This is another classic that I have been wanting to read for awhile. I own 4 different copies of this book but had never actually read it. A few years back I read Tom Sawyer and I felt like it was time to read this. I was very excited to find this version in audible. Elijah Wood does such a good job reading this books, I am biased yes, he is after all one of my favorite actors. :) But I was very impressed at all the voices he was able to do and how well he was able to speak the southern dialect. I am very happy that I am able to check this off my classics list. :)
After the adventure Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer had they found themselves with more money than they knew what to do with. Huck was adopted by the widow and she was trying to "civilize" him. He started to enjoy his life style till his drunkard abusive father came back to claim Huck as his. After awhile Huck got tired of being locked in the cabin when his father left and tired when his tired was back and drunk and beat him. So he devised a plan to make it look like he was murdered and he snuck down the Mississippi and hid on an island. There he found a runaway slave, but not any slave but Jim who use to work for the same widow that had adopted Huck. As Huck agreed to help Jim make it to the free states so he could be free, there adventures begin.
