Overview

First published in England in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885. Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has also been the continued object of study by serious literary critics since its publication. It was criticized upon release because of its coarse language and became even more controversial in the 20th century because of its perceived use of racial stereotypes and because of its frequent use of the racial slur "nigger".
Many have questioned the appropriateness of teaching the book in the U.S. public school system.
Huckleberry Finn was the fifth most-frequently-challenged book in the United States during the 1990s.

This book really engaged me. It takes place in the South through the eyes of Huckleberry Finn. It is the second book in a series, starting with Tom Sawyer. I thought some parts were hilarious and others dramatic. I definitely recommend this book, but it is for eighth graders and up.

Tom and Jim travel together down a river which symbolizes the flow of time and history. Told with grandeur and realism.
