Riassunto: In preparation for his audiobook recording of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, award-winning narrator Patrick Fraley worked with the assistant director of the University of California, Berkeley Mark Twain project to study the author's intent. Fraley brings to this production all of his professional experience in creating authentic character voices. Just as Mark Twain is a genius in capturing the American experience, so is Fraley in capturing the voices of that experience. Fraley is also the reader of The Audio Partners’ The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Listening to this amazing performance confirms why this classic is a perennial best-seller.
Recensione: A seminal work of American Literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is essential to the understanding of the American soul. The recent discovery of the first half of Twain's manuscript, long thought lost, made front-page news. And this unprecedented edition, which contains for the first time omitted episodes and other variations present in the first half of the handwritten manuscript, as well as facsimile reproductions of thirty manuscript pages, is indispensable to a full understanding of the novel. The changes, deletions, and additions made in the first half of the manuscript indicate that Mark Twain frequently checked his impulse to write an even darker, more confrontational book than the one he finally published.
