Not Tom Sawyer?

Though the "Mysterious Stranger" is a fascinating story, none of these stories ranks with "Tom Sawyer" and "Huck Finn", which are absolute classics. Furthermore, the reading is dreary and plodding.

Great story, terribly read

Love this story and it's perspective on human morality. Sadly it's being read by someone who mumbles, slurs, has very little understanding of the English language and mispronounces even the simplest of words. I can barely understand what he's saying some of the time. He does make an effort to create a different voice for each character, so I've given him a star for effort, but I feel that he gets Satan's voice all wrong!

Great story, badly cast.
