Overview

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (published 1876) is a very well-known and popular story concerning American youth. Mark Twain’s lively tale of the scrapes and adventures of boyhood is set in St. Petersburg, Missouri, where Tom Sawyer and his friend Huckleberry Finn have the kinds of adventures many boys can imagine: racing bugs during class, impressing girls, especially Becky Thatcher, with fights and stunts in the schoolyard, getting lost in a cave, and playing pirates on the Mississippi River.


Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884) by Mark Twain is one of the truly great American novels, beloved by children, adults, and literary critics alike. The book tells the story of “Huck” Finn (first introduced as Tom Sawyer’s sidekick in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), his friend Jim, and their journey down the Mississippi River on a raft. Both are on the run, Huck from his drunk and abusive father, and Jim as a runaway slave.

    For a mature audience, but not for me

    I was forced to read both Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn for school and while some of the satire was funny when they talked about the flaws of society, I personally thought it was pretty boring. There were also some very confusing parts. I understand why Twain used the grammer style he did for Tom and Huck, but after a while of reading both books, the grammer really started to annoy me. Maybe when I'm older I'll be able to appreciate the books, but as a teenager I would not recommend you read it.

    Impressed by Twain

    This was the first time I read Huckleberry Finn and once I picked it up I could not put it down. I am truly impressed with Twain's literary techniques and his ability to capture so much feeling and emotion through words. I enjoy the controversy surrounding this novel, and the way in which Twain plays upon it. Twain puts down on paper the feelings and emotions of people of many divergent backgrounds while giving us a taste of what life might have been like in the late 19th century. The story deals with many important issues such as slavery, adolescence and independence. He raises many points that arouse the reader to become interested and truly engaged in the novel. Huck represents Twain's strong anti-slavery feelings and other societal standards that he feels should be broken. The dialogue in the novel can be a bit of a distraction, but I feel that it adds to the truth of the story. Overall it was a very enjoyable read and a nice change from the books I have recently read. I would recommend this novel to anyone who is interested in classic American literature or just a well written novel.

    Huckleberry Finn

    This is the second time I have read the book and it was just as good as the first time through. I love the witty dialect Twain incorporates into the story to create a southern ambiance of the 19th century. This book was a hugely controversial at its time due to the fact a young white boy and a run-a-way slave team up together and sail the Mississippi in seek of adventure. I find the book really weird, kind of on a Sci-Fi level, with everything involving how the two families kill each other including their children. Today¿s world is full of people trapped in the routine of society¿s standards and Huck is a perfect example of what many people want ¿ independence. I like how Huck, even though without a proper family oriented upbringing, is able to distinguish from right and wrong. It shows the incredible mental capacity humans have in their ability to reason.
