Summary:

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (published 1876) is a very well-known and popular story concerning American youth. Mark Twain's lively tale of the scrapes and adventures of boyhood is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls, especially Becky Thatcher, with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River.

One of the most famous incidents in the book describes how Tom persuades his friends to do a boring, hateful chore for him: whitewashing (i.e., painting) a fence.

This was the first novel to be written on a typewriter.

    I thought the narrator was fine not amazing but very good. I have a bit of 10 and could see him in this story even though it is dated. I enjoyed this very much and am now looking for Huckleberry Finn to listen to.

    Loved the book! I listen to the adventures of huckleberry Finn. But the narrator made everyone seem old, especially Tom, Sid,Mary,Huck, but all in all it was a AWESOME BOOK!!!!!!!

    A wonderful story with fantastic insight into the mind of a boy coming-of-age. Delightful yet moving in its simplicity. The dialogues between Becky and Tom are especially my favorite. The narration is superb.
