Portable Magic

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer/Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain Audible version. Elijah Wood's reading is simply fantastic. Unfortunately, this story is not as engaging as I remember from childhood. I understand it has a Purpose, but I suspect I'd have given the book up completely before finishing, had I been reading the print version or had it been performed by anyone else.
