Review of ‘Huckleberry Finn’ by Sue Arnold in The Guardian, Saturday, March 11, 2006:

Ideally this would have been a review of the new Mark Twain biography by Ron Power, but if Matisse, Nijinsky and Coleridge are anything to go by, it won’t make it to audio. Serious biographies rarely do. So here’s the next best thing, an unabridged edition of Twain’s finest book, read with such unfeigned warmth, humour and gusto by Garrick Hagon that, to coin a phrase, “well, blame me if I says it and call me a low-down abolitionist if I durst but, thinks I, Mr Twain would mostwise reckon it powerful good, an I ain’t fooling, dog my catch if I ain’t.”

That’s the big problem with first-person narratives delivered in the vernacular. Vernon God Little, Angela’s Ashes, anything by William Faulker and (I’ll be lynched for saying this) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime are the same. Unless you’re familiar with the accent and sympathetic to the tone, they take some getting into on the page. But listening to someone like Hagon, whose repertoire of accents and voices is flawless, you’re immediately swept into the story without a hiccup. And what a story. Not for nothing are they called adventures, though so are Tom Sawyer’s and they aren’t a patch on the glorious escapades of the inimitable, irrepressible, incorrigible Huck Finn and Jim the runaway slave.... This is a genuine classic, full of laughs and fights and scams and Wild West characters that deserve a wider, younger audience. Don’t miss this brilliant performance.
