The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Mark TwainISBN: 1572703075;
Book DescriptionTom Sawyer remains one of the most beloved characters in the history of fiction, and this best-selling reading gives Tom and his adventures new life. All the memorable characters and scenes are here in this unabridged version: Aunt Polly with her Bible-based morality, independent Huck Finn, the famous fence-painting scene, the night on Jackson's Island. The book is no saccharine tale of childhood; Tom and Huck also witness grave-robbing and murder one night at the graveyard where they've gone seeking adventure and a cure for warts. Twain's themes of adult hypocrisy and the importance of character remain resonant with today's readers - and now, listeners in this virtuoso performance of one of the greatest American classics.
