Quotes & Awards

  • “All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn.”

    Ernest Hemingway

  • Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the only one of Mark Twain’s various books which can be called a masterpiece. I do not suggest that it is his only book of permanent interest; but it is the only one in which his genius is completely realized, and the only one which creates its own category.” 

    T. S. Eliot

  • “A seminal work of American literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is essential to the understanding of the American soul.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review

    " This book has got mad style. Check it out. Moby Dick, I believe, takes the master's card though. "

    " Huckleberry Finn, Huck to his friends, is the iconic maverick. Having been raised by an alcoholic, abusive father and cared for by a strictly religious woman, Huck has a strong dislike for society, feeling that it has nothing to offer to him. Huck tries very hard to be independent, and he is a very practical, down to earth boy. Despite this, he is always ready for some fun, like an adventure, and he would follow his friend Tom Sawyer to the ends of the earth, no matter how farfetched Tom's plan may be. After adventuring with Tom in another of Twain's stories, Huck finds himself on another adventure as he fakes his own death to escape his father. He finds himself in the company of Jim, a runaway slave. The pair embarks on a journey north so that Jim can buy his family. Through the various encounters and experiences that they have whenever they go ashore, they form a mutual respect for one another, and young Huck, who like most people at the time didn't think of Jim as human, questions the way society taught him to view African Americans. On their way north, the intrepid duo evades capture, discovery, con men and blood feuds. By the end, Jim is freed and Huck appears to continue to be his adventurous, nomadic self. Twains remarkable story is witty and suspenseful, and the characters are all very interesting (even King Louis XVI (XVII?)). This is a memorable read, and it will continue to be treasure by readers for a long time to come. "

    " I read this transport-of-delight as a boy, and 60 years later it still has the power to make me determined to run away and float down the Mississippi! What tales - and told by such a tale-spinner. A book that has, ever since, made me fascinated by any book about a river. Mark Twain - if I had a hat on, I'd take it off to you! Marvellous, marvellous... "
