Description

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (or, in more recent editions, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) is a novel by Mark Twain, first published in the United Kingdom in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885. Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective). It is a direct sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

    By Bells in my head
    To be completely honest this book is good but absolutely not one of the best so called “classics” out there. It is the first Mark Twain book I have read and I have read. Probably the last. Not because I disliked the book or anything, just because i didn’t really do it for me personally. The old southern dialect was almost as hard to follow as one of Tom Sawyers childish schemes and the book didn’t really have an over all message. There was some slight internal conflict with Huck when he was debating what was right and what was wrong in terms of freeing a salve. Huck decides on what he fees is the morally wrong thing to do and sets Jim free, but the interesting thing is reading this book 200 years after it was written because setting a slave free in 2018 would obviously be considered morally acceptable but when the move was written it might be looked at differently. There were some great scenes in the book when Huck and Jim were venturing down he river in the raft, but that wasn’t enough to make this story great. Huckleberry’s fast talking and shoot from the hip antics were amusing when It came to getting him and Jim out of trouble, but again this wasn’t enough to make this story great. I also really disliked the entire section concerning the Duke and the King. There schemes seemed far fetched even for this particular story, and there exit from the novel was anticlimactic. Sure thy were shown tarred and feathered, but a final dialogue between Huck and the two rapscallions would of been nice. Over all, in my honest opinion the book was a 3 out of 5 stars.
  • Good read.

    Beside from the n-word, this book is amazing! The chapters of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are hilarious and the duke and king chapters are humorous. Also, there’s Jim, one of the most amazing people in this book. This is definitely a must-read!!!
