Publisher's Summary

"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" (published 1876) is a very well-known and popular story concerning American youth. Mark Twain's lively tale of the scrapes and adventures of boyhood is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls, especially Becky Thatcher, with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River.

Not the best performance of a classic

Having being spoil by Elijah Wood's performance of Huck Finn, I may have expected too much from the original.
To say I am underwhelmed is pretty accurate.
Tom is as loathsome a character as he was dragging out Jim's rescue and the narrator put as much excitement and variations into his performance as reading a shopping list.

love the story

over all I loved it. I did feel the narrator could have been a little bit more emotional and slowed down just a bit. I do however have the story
