Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 5/22/2011

    " A thousand times better than Tom Sawyer (the character, that is). Adventures of Huckleberry Finn provides a mature look at race relations through the eyes of a young boy. This work is nothing short of great. "

    " I thought it was good but not great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Markus | 5/19/2011

    " I Love Huck Finn because I love Mark Twain. Persons attempting to find pedo/homo erotic undertones in that will be shot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eva Anne | 5/17/2011

    " Dissected this one for English class. Sometimes, discussion takes all the charm out of a book. So do angry yet subtle attacks at Romanticism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam | 5/16/2011

    " Not quite as entertaining as Tom Sawyer "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/15/2011

    " Read this one back in the 6th grade for an English assignment & still remember most of it to this day :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 5/14/2011

    " I think this was the first real novel I ever read, and I decided I wanted to be a writer. I also decided I wanted to sail a raft down the Mississippi River! "

    " One of the greatest American novels. "

About the Author
Author Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
