Time has done little to diminish the appeal and enjoyment of this classic story of growing up in midwestern America. The world Mark Twain envisioned is a boy-perfect one, where life is perpetual vacation, where good and evil are clearly defined, and where the joys of independent discovery always outweigh the severity of punishment.

I give this book 4 star rating. I like books that are adventurous. These kinds of books take me to a different place when I read. In the book when Tom and Huck adventure out to the graveyard because they hear something they go out and put their lives on the line. This is one part in the book that kept me on my toe's wondering what will happen next. I loved it! Any one that enjoys reading a great adventurous book this is the first book you should take a look at. You will be amazed at what you read. I know I was.

My review of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was that it was an amazing book that I truly enjoyed. It was adventurous and also funny. I would recommend this book to anybody boy or girl. It was a little slow at the beginning but then it started to really pick up. I am thinking of reading it again just to make sure that I got everything in the story. There was a little for everybody. This was my favorite book.
