Description

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (or, in more recent editions, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) is a novel by Mark Twain, first published in the United Kingdom 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 to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective). It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

    I'm almost 65, and hadn't read this. Happy I took the time. Kept my interest from first page to last, which had an interest twist to the end of the adventures. A 'must read' for anyone who hasn't done so.

    I needed to put three notes per page and then have a OCD crazy lady check them which she criticized on all of them because she thinks she is always right.

    This book will make you laugh. The story keeps building up and up making for an exciting and entertaining experience. The depth of characters in this story makes you feel as if you are a part of the story. I would recommend this book to anyone. My only warning is that some dialogue in this story may be hard to understand and sometimes offensive but you should remember that this creates a sense of realism and drama.

  • My rant on Huckleberry Finn

    I don’t know where to begin with a book as beautifully written and detailed as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. There is just so much beauty in the story it humbles me that such can be described. From Huck’s description of the river to the constant liveliness of nature around him, nothing is ever dull or grey in the world of the book. You can tell how much Twain has put into this book by the vividness of the culture of the slaves through Jim, how Huck sees the river as a living entity, through conme-Kings and Dukes “spreading the work of the bard”, through personal loss and family conflict, through Huck’s constantly sharp wit for such a laid back, uneducated kid. I recommend this book to EVERYBODY: young, old, older, younger, modern, past, future, outside of time, and the others!
