    " of all the books I had ot read for school, this is probably the only one that didn't suck so bad i wanted to shred it and burn the remains. Actually this book turned out to be a great tale even though it's quite slow and took serious effort to develop an interest in it. "

    " This is one if the best books ever. Great story-telling, adventurous, funny, and heart-felt. It's a story of humans and how we are more alike than different, and more good than bad. Love Huck Finn - what a hero! "

    " The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is about a young boy who helps a runaway slave get away from the farm he's on which is Huck's farm. Huck had always believed slavery was the right thing to do but quickly learned while on his travels with Jim, the runaway, that slavery destroys the black community's way of life and tears their families apart. While on their adventures Huck helps hide Jim and think for Jim but Jim returns the favor by caring deeply about Huck and watching out for his well being. Jim ends up getting turned in by two frauds that they worked with for awhile on their journey. Huck and his cousin Tom help get Jim back out of slavery again from Tom's farm with a very unnecessarily complicated plan that ends up working out. Then they find out that Jim's been freed since he left Huck's farm. "

    " a brilliant farce with a deep conscience. a delightful story with plenty of Twain humor. Twain understands the male adolescent mind at least as well if not better than anyone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Savage | 1/11/2014

    " Laugh out loud situational comedy with big themes. Be healed by it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Holmes | 1/10/2014

    " I do love this book although now when I reread it I read the more complete edition from the University of California. Just to mention here, though is the introduction by Toni Morrison and the afterword by Victor Doyno. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Timothy Jennings | 1/10/2014

    " One of my favorites. I've read it several times. I remember the first time reading it through, laughing out loud on several occasions. "

    " Earnest Hemingway said HF is the source of all American literature. H.L. Mencken said it is the greatest masterpiece in the world! Everyone should read it. I agree!! A wonderful tale of growing up, prejudice, and life in the south. Every educated person should have a working knowledge of HF!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Stergar | 1/1/2014

    " Very entertaining while still going into huge issues of life/history. Always loved Mr Twain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 10/9/2013

    " not a big fan of this book but it is an american classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Skittle Booth | 6/28/2013

    " A darker, richer story than the Adventures of Tom Sawyer until the end when Tom Sawyer, rather unbelievably, reappears. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 4/17/2013

    " By far and away this is Twain's best novel. It reveals so much of his own views on life and slavery as well as the views and truths that a healing nation didn't want to hear at the time and many don't want to hear now. To further understand this period of US history, this book is a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tasha | 11/19/2012

    " A very intense and exciting book about Huck Finn and how he manages to get into scrapes left and right. Glad it had a happy ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ysabel Lancaster | 8/21/2012

    " Once you got through the difficult dialogue an interesting and slightly uncomfortable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 4/16/2012

    " 4.99999999!!! It would have been a 5 but Tom and his schemes bugged me to death!!! But I absolutely loved this book!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lynn HR | 1/30/2012

    " Mark Twain was a totally great writer for the era he wrote during and about. I read this as a teen and enjoyed it greatly. "

    " You can't go wrong with Twain's best story, in my opinion at least. A wonderful story that defines an era and a mentality that the American had. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren Cecil | 1/17/2012

    " Alyhought this is a very historical book, I found myself bored and sick or reading the words by and by... "

    " Fascinating study of time and place long gone. Difficult word makes teh reality work, but so glad we don't live in a country that accepts it now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 5/24/2011

    " I was too young when I read this book--I liked it, but I want to go back to it. Twain is an amazing writer, and I'm sure I'd get more out of it now. "

  • 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 5/22/2011

    " I thought it was good but not 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. "

  • 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 "

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.
