    " This story does a really good job at making you hate the characters. But that is all that it is good for. "

    " I thought that The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain was a pretty good book and there are many reasons for my opinion. I read Tom Sawyer back in seventh grade and i really enjoyed it because of all the mystery and suspense it created. Even though the book was easier to read it was almost the same concept as Huck Finn. I liked that it had a lot of suspense and you were always wondering what would happen next. Will Huck find a way to escape from the King and the Duke, and how many times is Huck going to lose Jim because of all the antics going on. There were points in the book that really made me want to put it down and go to sleep but those moments came very rarely. For instance when there was something not very important going on such as when Huck is explaining what is going on. I like the moments where he is running or trying to survive because it gets me interested. I would actually strongly recommend this book because anyone who is interested about the past like i am would love this book because it portrays the late 1800's on how it really was. The main conflict in this novel would have to be man versus self because Huck is always asking himself what he should do and what is best for him. Such as when he is in control of Ms. Watson who wants him to be a good boy and listen to the rules, Huck doesn't like rules and decides to leave to live with Pap where he faced with another tough decision. Will he stay or leave Pap because staying will put him in danger because of Pap's drinking problem. Huck comes up with a smart plan and leaves when he meets Jim and later on has to make yet another tough decision. Jim has traveled with him the whole time and they've created a special bond; will he let Jim become a slave again or keep Jim with him? Huck chooses the obvious plan in my mind and decides that Jim and him have become great friends and no one will ruin that. All of these decisions require Huck to fight with himself and make really tough decisions. A very unfamiliar writing style is used by Mark Twain in this novel and it is a big reason why this book got such great reviews back when it first came out. People appreciated how it used old language and it used actual grammar that the African-Americans used to use. "No, but i ben rich wunst, and gwyne to be rich ag'in. Wunst i had foteen dollars, but i tuck to specalat'n', en got busted out"(Jim 46). As you can see the style of writing is very complex but then it's not. It might be hard for people to read when they start which makes it complex but then it starts to wear on you. What makes it not complex is that it is not even correct grammar. Overall i believe that the overall moral/theme of the story is to do what is right and make the right choices when it comes to people that mean something to you. Such as how Huck and Jim did everything to make sure that they stayed together because they both depended on each other. No matter what the theme it was still a very good book. "

    " It was a little boring sometimes and kind of confusing when it switched between present tense and past tense. But in the end I guess it was okay and a little funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 1/7/2014

    " I have always wanted to read this book and can't believe I didn't read it until now. It took me a little while to get through but I found it hysterical! Loved the ending too! I would actually give it 4 1/2 stars if there were an option. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff D. | 12/31/2013

    " A slice of Americana that is equal parts fun and whimsical. "

    " This was a good book, the ending was a bit frustrating. If you want to read this, I highly reccomend you read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain before you read this one. Trust me, you'll have a much easier time understanding this one if you do. "

    " This is one of my favorite classics. I've read it a number of times, but the first time I read it was the best because I read it and then rolled into Charles Dickens Oliver Twist. These two books were written about the same time but what a contrast in life's. Both books a great reads. "

    " Had to read this for a class project thing... It was ok, the ending was a little to sudden though "

    " I understand that the use of the n-word was a part of the culture in which Clemens lived, but it was still offensive to me to the extent that every time I came across it it was jarring. "

    " I didn't enjoy it very much, but there's no doubt that it is a masterpiece. Twain weaves an abundance of hidden messages throughout its entirety and although it can be very dreary and boring at times, it is worth the read certainly to get a taste of old America. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen Graham | 12/19/2011

    " I abandoned it when I was a child, but now it is one of my favourite books. "

    " 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. "

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

    " Not quite as entertaining as Tom Sawyer "

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.
