Known for his satire and wit, Mark Twain (1835-1910) is an icon of American literature. His novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn have endured as classics, read by millions of people year after year.
Eric has been a full-time voice actor and musician since 2003, doing voiceover work with The Media Group. Eric's audiobook career (and passion) began in 2009 for Brilliance Audio. Since joining their ranks as a frequent narrator, Eric has recorded numerous titles by authors such as J.R. Ward, Stephen Coonts, Greg Iles, and others. After forming Sweet Jennie Mae Productions, Eric recorded clips for Nike, Farmer's Insurance, The Austin Museum of Natural History, and more.
Gr 7 Up—Two American classics transport listeners to Twain's Missouri with the mischievous antics of Tom Sawyer and the less savory, but equally appealing, jaunts of Huckleberry Finn. With characters drawn from his hometown, Twain's tales reveal the 19th-century culture, yet remain current. The boys' conquests range from Tom saving himself and his delicate sweetheart from a deep cave to Huck rafting down the Mississippi with a runaway slave and two con men. While far from perfect, the titular teens are never mean-spirited, and their misbehavior is often humorous. Narrator Eric G. Dove takes on roles from sweet, young Becky Thatcher to mean Injun Joe with clear dialect and country accents. This high-quality sound recording is a natural way to introduce Twain to students with one caution: the N-word, common in that era, is found in both novels. These recordings are useful additions to middle and high school libraries and solid components in any public library collection.—Barbara Wysocki, Cora J. Belden Library, Rocky Hill, CT
