Huck Finn is an orphaned drifter who loves freedom more than respectability. He isn’t above lying and stealing, but he faces a battle with his conscience when he meets up with a runaway slave named Jim, who provides him with his first experiences of love, acceptance, and a sense of responsibility.

The title character of this famous novel tells his own story in a straightforward narrative laced with shrewd, sharp comments on human nature. The boy’s adventures along the Mississippi River provide a framework for a series of moral lessons, revelations of a corrupt society, and contrasts between innocence and hypocrisy. The colorful cast of characters—including the crafty grifters, the Duke and the King—help make this a memorable classic.

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

  • “The perfect combination of plot and character.”

    Sting

  • “Nothing has ever laid me out like the moment in Huckleberry Finn where Huck says, ‘All right, then, I’ll go to hell.’ Pure heroism and friendship. It’s so rare to see that in real life that that sentence is, technically, science fiction.”

    Patton Oswalt

  • “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

  • “Excels in sheer beauty…Tom Parker contributes a resonant announcer’s baritone, superb technique, musical expressiveness, and a fond, intelligent understanding. He is less a narrator here than a storyteller, one of the best this reviewer has heard…Of the half dozen recorded renditions I’ve auditioned, this is the one that best expresses the brilliance of Twain’s rendering of dialect and a rural boy’s sensibility.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherri | 2/2/2014

    " Wow! It had been so long since I read this book. Frankly, I was a child - and now about a million years later, I realize that this is definitely an adult book! The themes of freedom and doing what's right (even when it is against society norms) come through loud and strong. Mark Twain is also a master at humor in the written word. Really an enjoyable read and I won't wait another million years to read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan Lagan | 1/18/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mariah | 1/14/2014

    " I've read this book multiple times throughout my life and honestly this would have to the worst time I had read it. Reading childhood classics in high school just doesn't more at all. "

    " The reason I became in love with reading, along with To Kill A Mockingbird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thimira Anjana | 6/8/2013

    " It was a good story. Had some difficulty reading though, as the narrator use spellings colloquially pertaining to the way one pronounces. eg: git= git. Almost entire book winds down along the river. The story continues from where The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer ends. Better read that before this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aimee | 4/16/2013

    " I read this book because I want to read "Finn", which is about "The Adventures of HF" but i have to say...I looove lilterature, but this book was kind of boring. lI dont know if it was because the audio book narrator but, it was just boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Clapper | 3/23/2013

    " Mark Twain famously remarked that a class is "something that everybody wants to have read and nobody wants to read." Huckleberry Finn is a classic, but you really should want to read it. It's outstanding, even after all this time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Levi | 2/24/2013

    " This is - and I'm going to be controversial here, I know - an excellent book. I am embarrassed - and a little upset with my high school English teachers - that this is the first time I'm reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Dabney | 8/7/2012

    " Great book. Annotated edition is excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 7/16/2012

    " A bully read. Worth reading for the descriptions of life at the time and great characters. The storyline itself was uneven. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Graham | 5/5/2012

    " The great classic American novel. This book has so much for everyone. On top of it's literary value, it is absolutely hilarious! One of the few books I've ever read that make me laugh out loud every time I read it, and I've read it at least 5 times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elliot Mogosi | 4/21/2012

    " I read this book when i was a teen and i really loved it, i found it very captivating. i will love to read it again. "

    " I wanted to love this because it's Mark Twain and Huckleberry Finn! But I didn't love it. It was okay, but not a favorite read for me. It didn't hold my interest and I found myself wishing I was further along than I was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arsenio Peraza | 1/1/2012

    " fantastic boys adventure set in the wild's of Mississippi. It's problem is the use of the N-word you have to remember that It was written in the early 20th century. Which does not excuses its use but trying to put into context. "

  • 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 "
