Las inmortales aventuras de un nino. Los navegantes de los rios del sur de Estados Unidos gritaban Mark Twain para indicar que habia suficiente profundidad para que sus barcos no encallaran y Mark Twain fue el seudonimo escogido por Samuel Langhorne Clemens para sus cuentos y novelas que retratan con un humor unico la vida rural de fines del siglo XIX. El autor fue marinero de rio, periodista y panfletista que con un estilo sardonico supo hacer descripciones que aun en nuestros dias, supuestamente mas sofisticados. Su obra mas conocida, Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer y su secuela Huckleberry Finn (ambas figuran en estas colecciones) son consideradas con justicia como pinaculos de la novela de Estados Unidos y ellas han deleitado y siguen deleitando generaciones de lectores.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is considered rightly as a pinnacle of the American novel. It has delighted and continues to delight generations of listeners.

    " I cannot think of any other book (apart from To Kill a Mocking Bird) that can narrate a very serious time in such a simple manner. The book took me back to the old times referred in it, as well as to my own past where I had been quite mischievous to everyone, but regarded and adventurous guy by myself and the kids in the locality. The book is a great read for all, especially to feel our innocence from deep within. I loved this book. "

    " I am still making an attempt to re-read some classics. Re-reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was as expected: The book is, of course, entertaining, and the plotline is predictable. As a literature and writing teacher, I found it interesting as a style-study. Students today find it difficult reading because of the dialect and quaint vocabulary, but it offers students much that most recent adolescent fiction ignores - analysis of morals, social customs, and interpersonal relationships for one. It is also a good glimpse into a no-longer-known culture. "

    " Awesome book. A timeless classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 2/1/2014

    " not as horrifyingly deep as Huck, but therefore more enjoyable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shardenae | 1/30/2014

    " I love Mark Twain! This was the first of his books that I have read and I thought it was quite entertaining to get to peek into America's history just through the writing of this book. I learned some new words and left no page unturned. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/27/2014

    " No reason attempting to review The Adventures of Tom Sawyer--Twain is what makes us call, "classics" classics. Boyhood Americana couldn't be finer than Tom (let's not forget Huck), a raft, the Mississippi River, and boyhood shenanigans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Neni Marlina | 1/26/2014

    " A book from my childhood from which I value how to be a joyful adult:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana Vale Balatico | 1/20/2014

    " Reminds me of the time when Americans knew their neighbors, actually played outside, and enjoyed life as a child... Seems like a life I would want. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Champaign Public Library | 1/19/2014

    " Somehow I have managed to avoid reading any Mark Twain. My library is doing a two communities/one book celebration about Tom Sawyer. It was a quick read and I decided Tom wasn't as bad a boy as I thought. I'm looking forward to learning more about this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paige Johnson | 1/15/2014

    " Just read it with the boys for the first time. I think I read most of it before but it's such a familiar tale that it's hard to know for sure. Really struggled with Tom's character but the writing and Huck got us through it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeni Hill | 8/27/2013

    " I read this book many years ago -when I was probably 11-12 years old -maybe not even that old -and I loved it! This and Huckleberry Finn were two of my favorites back then. Excellent reading for children, young adults or old folks! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 8/25/2013

    " By today's standards, Tom would probably be diagnosed with ADHD. By the end of the story, he hasn't really learned anything from his (mis)adventures. I like this story though; fun and adventurous, with several run-ins with the eerie and creepy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel McEleney Freebury | 8/27/2012

    " I loved it, read it as a kid and it brought back some very amusing memories. "

    " Long time ago as a kid! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxanne | 2/29/2012

    " Wonderful book that I love! My all-time favourite part is when he manages to get all the others to believe that white-washing a fence is the most fun a child can have! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joselle173 | 12/19/2011

    " The edition I'm reading is from 1963 and must predate ISBN since it doesn't have one. It also states the book is by Samuel Clemens (I'm thinking the original publication of the book in 1875 listed Mark Twain as the author; that was his pen name.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Van Winter | 11/21/2011

    " Another favorite that I have read and re-read "

    " I wonder why I was so reluctant to read this book. It was fun and the traditions, culture and suspicions of the time are really interesting. I enjoyed this one! "

    " I found this book very funny and entertaining. Although most of my friends disagree with me, I thought this was a great book, especially when you're just in the mood to relax and have a good time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sanket | 5/18/2011

    " Not as good as Huck Finn. "

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.
