    " 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. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Twain captures perfectly the mind of the little boy and it had excitement and adventure without cliche feats that a real little boy would be unlikely to accomplish. That's the thing I liked most about this book, is the likelyhood of it. Everything that happened is perfectly plausible in the real world and a lot of it probably did happen. "

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.
