It has been many years since I read his book. I recently listened to the audiobook while driving to and from work the past couple of weeks. Mark Twain was one of the best writers of his time. His stories feel so real and you can get lost in the storytelling. The story of Huck Finn is no different. Huck is a young boy in Mississippi in the 1800s. Slavery is prominent; which means so is racism. Huck recently falls into a lot of money ($6000 sounds funny these days to call that a lot but it was a fortune back then). He's scare of his absentee abusive drunken father taking it away. When his dad shows up to do just that, Huck forms a plan to escape. He fakes his own death. The rest of the book tells of Huck's travels and trials. Makes you wonder how one small boy gets into so much trouble. He runs into Jim, a runaway slave that belongs to his guardian. This is where the boy must decide what is right. Society rule is to turn Jim in (Jim could get beaten or even hung for running away), but Huck's conscience says Jim is a good man who deserves to be free. I recommend everyone read this book. Look past the racist remarks and see them for what they are. A glimpse into a time that is long past and learn from the young boy, who even though he lives in a period where segregation and degradation of people are the norm, he looks into his own heart and makes a friend of someone so much different then himself.
