Meet the Author

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is most noted for his novels, Tom Sawyer (1876), and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel." Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, which became very popular and brought nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling. He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty. However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility. Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age," and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature."

    Tom Sawyer is a fantastic read by the ever so famous author, Mar

    Tom Sawyer is a fantastic read by the ever so famous author, Mark Twain. Tom Sawyer is about an adventurous young boy who has an endless imagination, a love for stories, and an infatuation with the young Becky Thatcher. This electrifying novel will keep you flipping pages until your bedtime, for it is filled with excitement, blunders, and the maturing of the characters. Tom along with his good friend Huck Finn go hunting for treasure in the haunted house in the woods of St. Petersburg, Missouri. The young boys never imagined that a trip to the woods one summer afternoon would turn into a very long, eventful situation. As you follow Tom and his friends on their journeys throughout the book you witness their growth as people as well.
    This was a marvelous book. It is filled with nonstop action and mystery; it had me on the edge of my seat until the very last page. There was suspense, thrill, and excitement on every page. I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys mystery, action, comedy, and incredible books in general! This was definitely one of the best books I have ever read so far, Mark Twain did an outstanding job on this novel, just like the rest of his books.

    Tom Sawyer is a tale about a young boy named Tom Sawyer who was what every child wanted to be. He was free to do almost anything he wanted, until his aunt found out. Its the classic Tom Sawyer we know that tricked a boy into washing and repainting the entire white fence. He could make anything look amusing. He had a certain way with words that could make anybody do just about anything. I recommend this book to all ages because it was a great book to read and it had you wondering what next outlandish thing would Tom Sawyer do. Children could envy the boy and wish that they could do have the things he could do and adults could look back and see how much it didn't relate to their childhood. He saw things any other ordinary 8 year old would not usuallt see on a regular basis. Tom Sawyer wished he could be like Huckleberry FIn, a boy with the absolute free will to do anything he pleased. Tom Sawyer even had a love interest. Read it for yourself to find out more about it.

    Tom Sawyer

    Mark Twain is a creative thinker and writer. And I love his book about Tom Sawyer,Aunt Polly,Becky Thatcher,and the rest of the gang. One of my favorite parts is when Tom feeds his cat,Peter pain medicine,and Peter starts to bounce off the walls.:)

    Tom Sawyer rightfully deserves its title as being one of the gre

    Tom Sawyer rightfully deserves its title as being one of the greatest American novels in history. Mark Twain's novel is both a fun and deep read, as most of Tom's adventures hold an important message aside from his childish antics. Although many different events occur, a main story arc involving lost treasure and outlaws takes place. Tom sawyer, a mischievous young boy living in the South oversees a murder. When he details the scene in court , the killer makes his escape and Tom fears he may be out to get revenge. Tom deals with all the adventure in his life with a sense of maturity not typical of his age, but also as a child not entirely confident in his own ability to keep himself safe. This is especially apparent when Tom and his friend Becky become trapped in a cave; although remaining collected and taking leadership so as not to alarm Becky, Tom is nonetheless frightened for his own safety and remains uncertain and fearful of his own fate as he desperately wishes for outside help. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is an exciting and meaningful read for an audience of any age.
