Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Few today may be aware of Twain's 1894 sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884). Though this novel is not up to the standard of those two immortal classics, it does make for fun listening as it places Tom, Huck, and former slave Jim in a fantastic balloon voyage across the Atlantic and North Africa. Of special interest is the narrative's frequent allusions to Richard Francis Burton's Arabian Nights. Great literature this is not, but it does contain some nice moments, and younger readers in particular will enjoy listening to actor/director/narrator Grover Gardner's (grovergardner.blogspot.com) delightful performance. [A boxed set collecting this recording together with Gardner's readings of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Tom Sawyer, Detective, will be available from Blackstone Audio in August.—Ed.]—R. Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA

    Old Characters Exhumed

    Twain wrote 'Tom Sawyer Abroad' as he wrote many other works, for financial gain. At approximately 40,000 words it is pale in both length and quality when compared to 'Huckleberry Finn.' Most critics have a problem with Twain's ending of the latter but at least it had one. 'Tom Sawyer Abroad' comes to a grinding halt and leaves one feeling that those old, classic characters have been unfairly and unwillingly exhumed from their noble state for dubious ennoblement in what is basically a humourist's response to Jules Verne. If you liked 'Huckleberry Finn' then that that alone might be a reason to read 'Tom Sawyer Abroad.' Otherwise, it's not worth it.

    Tom Sawyer Abroad

    Tom Sawyer Abroad is an excellent book! It is yet another book about Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and Jim. Written by Mark Twain, this book takes Tom, Huck, and Jim across the world. When Tom, Huck, and Jim go look at a flying machine built by a mad scientist the flying machine suddenly takes off with Tom, Huck, Jim, and the scientist. When the scientist falls overboard, Tom, Huck, and Jim are left to steer the machine! This is when the real adventure begins. They travel across oceans and deserts as they try to get back home. If you enjoy Mark Twain books, then this is a must read!
