Tom Sawyer Abroad by Huck Finn


Read by John Greenman

(4.6 stars; 220 reviews)

Tom Sawyer Abroad is a novel by Mark Twain published in 1894. It features Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in a parody of Jules Verne-esque adventure stories. In the story, Tom, Huck, and Jim set sail to Africa in a futuristic hot air balloon, where they survive encounters with lions, robbers, and fleas to see some of the world's greatest wonders, including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, Detective, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Reviews

really good but one thing...


(4 stars)

I enjoyed this book very well, and yet, there is one thing I’m not sure of, it’s whether Huckleberry Finn was telling this as a tall tale or whether it really happened. (I of course know it’s fiction but still).

Hilarious and Entertaining


(5 stars)

I love when Tom and Huck argue about things like the map vs the land seen from the balloon, or balloon vs the flying horse.
