Beschrijving

Hadleyburg is a decent American town where all the people are honest, selfless and honorable. At least, that is how they see themselves. One day a stranger arrives in town and somehow the locals manage to offend him so badly that he is determined to get his revenge on them by exposing their true nature, which according to him is far from "incorruptible".
How will he tempt the people that are so well trained to avoid temptation? Are they really as honest as they claim to be?

B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.

Mark Twain was an American writer who lived in the period 1835-1910. His works combine humor, social criticism and moralism. His literary legacy consists of many travel narratives such as "The Innocents Abroad" and "Life on the Mississippi" but he gained wide popularity with his adventure stories of boyhood "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" which was called by some the first Great American Novel. Although many of Mark Twain’s works have been censored at times for various reasons, he is held to have been America’s "greatest humorist" by some and "the father of American literature" by others.
