Great read

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

Simly one of the best books ever witten by an american author. I read this in high scholl and I read it again in my mid 30's.

Once you get past the cultural/historical references between the inequality of blacks and whites and focus on the touching story of a young teenager setting out on his own to make a new life for himself while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.

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.

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.
