More About This Book

Overview

Completely illustrated with all first edition images.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often referred to as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn or shortened to Huckleberry Finn or simply Huck Finn) is a novel by Mark Twain, first published in February 1885. Commonly recognized as one of the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written in the vernacular, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective).
The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Satirizing a Southern antebellum society that was already out of date by the time the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.
The work has been popular with readers since its publication and is taken as a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. It has also been the continued object of study by serious literary critics.

    worth the read.

    The language dialect was difficult to read "quickly". Still the classic and well worth reading.

    Readers of all ages will enjoy Huck's adventures in this tale.

    Readers of all ages will enjoy Huck's adventures in this tale. The formatting of this version of the book leaves something to be desired, however. Half way through the book several chapters were repeated, which was very distracting, and a few chapters contained a box at the end of each sentence. The story is 5 stars, but this nook book version, sadly, is not.

    A Very Enjoyable Book

    Once you get past the cultural/historical references between the inequality of blacks and whites and focus on the touching story of a young teenager setting out on his own to make a new life for himself while discovering a deep and meaningful relationship with a runaway slave, you will be thankful that you picked up this classic and spent time reading it.

    So many of us are educated by the agreed standards of our day: media, religion, secondary schooling but miss the daily wisdom of simply living our lives the best we can in harmony with not only our own needs but the needs of others as well. Huck Finn reminds us that when he set off on his own and helps Jim he broke many social mores and laws of his day but stayed true to his inner-voice, his conscience.

    No where is this contrast between society and Jim's conscience more clearly demonstrated than when he meets up with Tom and wastes so much time freeing Jim from his prison due to all the hoops and hurdles Tom has them perform because "that's the way it's done."

    After reading the text, it's hard not to ask yourself if in your own life have you been responding to difficult decisions like Huck, with your conscience, or like Tom, the way society wants you to. I believe, however, this is exactly what Twain wanted his reader's to ask and to become more like his protagonist in the end.

    Last thought, before reading this book, be sure to read Tom Sawyer first. Sawyer's book brings so much back story to Finn, Sawyer, and their relationship.

    Great Classic

    Purchased this classic for my 17yr old son. He left his homework at school and needed to read a few chapters, lol. So glad I have a NOOK and Barnes & Noble.
