Nick Offerman Tangles with Twain and Narrates the Original Time Travel Story

Books Entertainment

If ever there were a match made in heaven, it’s Nick Offerman and Mark Twain. They may not instantly strike you as a perfect pair, but can you think of two more sardonic voices? And now that I’ve planted the seed, you can’t think of anything else, right?

Well, I’m happy to say that Audible is here to fill your ear holes with some pure…ahem…audible magic. Released this week is a brand-new recording of Twain’s classic time travel story A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, narrated by Ron Swanson himself – Nick Offerman. And it’s just as great as you think it is.

There’s really no point in my reviewing a Mark Twain novel, so I’m not even going to attempt it. Offerman’s dry cynical drawl, however, is so seemingly perfect for Twain’s story and deadpan humor that it’s hard to imagine anyone else narrating it.

The Audible-exclusive recording is now available here for your listening pleasure. You’re welcome.¬†And if you’re looking for more, Offerman has also narrated Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
