Following his adventures with Tom Sawyer and the murderous Injun Joe, Huck Finn fakes his own death to escape his alcoholic father and with his slave pal Jim, travels down the Mississippi through the Deep South.
I tried reading this book many years ago but was never able to finish it. Getting my hands on the audio version however, was a great way to have another go. Elijah Wood narrates superbly, providing a wonderful variety of voices and accents and bringing out the humour in the book to great effect. If, like me, you find the sheer length of the novel a bit daunting, this is a perfect way to enjoy it.
