Editorial Reviews Review

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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Considered the first great American novel, part of Finn's charm is the wisdom and sobering social criticism deftly lurking amongst the seemingly innocent observations of the uneducated Huck and the even-less-educated escaped slave, Jim. William Dufris's voice, unpretentious and disarming, like the book's main characters, seems the perfect armature on which to hang this literary strategy. Although he does an expert job with the entire cast, Dufris's delivery of Jim's dialogue is his crowning achievement. Out of context, Dufris's Jim might sound mocking and racist, due to his expert delivery of Twain's regional vernacular. Ignorance and intelligence, however, are not mutually exclusive, and taken as a whole, Jim's mind and heart come shining through, allowing the listener to reflect on their own assumptions. Tantor Media includes the entire text as a digital e-book on the final CD, a wise and thoughtful move in a market with swift and changing currents.

Format: Paperback
Do you need some Orwellian Big Brother to 'edit' a classic book for you? Do you want someone else to decide what you should or shouldn't read? Are you incapable of seeing a word used in a century-old context without throwing a fit over it?

If yes, then this is the censored book for you.

If NO, then keep browsing for an UNEDITED, UNABRIDGED version -- and leave this piece of dreck to rot.


First, consider the attribution that appears in this book's search result listing: "Mark Twain 'AND Sarah Matthews.'" Why is there a second name on a classic book that everyone knows had only one author? Why, because the second person is an ~Editor~ -- a self-appointed Judge of Words, a modern-day INQUISITOR who has removed parts of the original work because THEY decided that you, the Reader, don't need to see them.

What parts of the original did this Inquisitor decide you don't need to see? Well to begin with, every last use of the word N-gg-r -- you know, because somebody might wet their diapers if they see that word in print in a book that's more than century old, despite the fact that black people all over this country use the same word every single day even NOW.

But then, just for good measure, the Inquisitor also removed whole sentences and sections that didn't have anything at all to do with 'the N-word' -- but which might have stirred up thoughts in you that the Inquisitor doesn't want you thinking.

The result is a butchered and mangled parody of the original: a pathetic, PC-sanitized piece of crap. Everyone involved in the production of this edition should be ashamed -- indeed, they should be barred from working in the Publishing industry ever again -- and anyone who rewards their censorship by buying this edition is contributing to the decline of Freedom and Free Speech in America.
