N a feud two scoundrels pretending to be royalty and Tom Sawyer's aunt who mistakes him for To I had to read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in middle school and I fervently wish that they had made us read Huck Finn instead I mean I understand why they didn't giving middle schoolers an excuse to throw around racial slurs in a classroom setting is just asking for a lawsuit from somebody's parents but Huck Finn is better It's smarter it's funnier and Huck's adventures stay with you a lot longer than Tom's because Huck's experiences were richer and interesting whereas The Adventures of Tom Sawyer could easily have been titled The Adventures of an Entitled Little Asshole If Tom had to go through half of what happens to Huck in this story he'd be balled up in the corner crying after five minutes The action of Huck Finn is set in motion when Huck's father shows up and decides that he's going to be responsible for his son now the story picks up right where Tom Sawyer left off with Huck and Tom becoming rich hence Finn Sr's sudden involvement in his kid's life Huck's father essentially kidnaps him taking him to a cabin in the middle of nowhere and getting drunk and beating his son Huck escapes by faking his own death and it's awesome and begins traveling up the Mississippi river He runs into Jim a slave who belonged to the Widow Douglas's sister Jim overheard his owner talking about selling him so he decided to run away and try to go north Huck after some hesitation goes with him From this point the structure of the book closely mirrors Don uixote a mismatched pair of companions travels the country having unrelated adventures and comic intervals On their travels Huck and Jim encounter con men criminals slave traders and in the best mini story in the book a family involved in a Hatfields and McCoys like feud with a neighboring clan The story comes full circle when Tom Sawyer shows up and joins Jim and Huck for the last of their adventures and the best part of this is that Tom Sawyer's overall ridiculousness becomes obvious once we see him through Huck's eyes Huck is a great narrator and I think one of the reasons I liked this book than its counterpart was because it's narrated in first person and so Huck's voice is able to come through clearly in every word In addition to the great stories there are also some really beautiful descriptions of the Mississippi river as seen in this passage about the sun rising on the riverThe first thing to see looking away over the water was a kind of dull line that was the woods on t'other side you couldn't make nothing else out; then a pale place in the sky; then paleness spreading around; then the river softened up away off and warn't black any but grey; you could see little dark spots drifting along ever so far away trading scows and such things; and long black streaks rafts; sometimes you could hear a sweep screaking or jumbled up voices; it was so still and sounds come so far; and by and by you could see a streak on the water which you know by the look of the streak that there's a snag there in a swift current which breaks on it and makes that streak look that way; and you see the mist curl up off of the water and the east reddens up and the river and you make out a log cabin on the edge of the woods away on the bank on t'other side of the river being a wood yard likely and pulled by them cheats so you can throw a dog through it anywheres; then the nice breeze springs up and comes fanning you from over there so cool and fresh and sweet to smell on account of the woods and the flowers; but sometimes not that way because they've left dead fish laying around gars and such and they do get pretty rank; and next you've got the full day and everything smiling in the sun and the song birds just going italso that was one single sentence Damn Mark TwainA fun deceptively light series of stories that's funny and sad when you least expect it Well done The List you picked a good one for once why are you still here The review's over Oh I get it You want me to talk about the racism right You want me to discuss how Huck views Jim as stolen property instead of a person and criticize the freuent use of the N Word and say problematic a lot right Well tough titties I'm not getting involved in that because it's stupid and pointless and I'm just going to let Mark Twain's introduction to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn speak for itself and the work as a whole Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot

The Adventures of Huckleberry FinnAdventures as he travels down the river with a runaway slave encountering a family involved i Review updated on 16022017Ask any person anywhere in the world to give an example of a classic book of US literature and it is a safe bet this one will come out among the top three The only reason I am going to mention the plot for such famous book is the fact that I always do it; I am not breaking my own tradition in this case So an orphan boy and a runaway slave travel together in Southern US One of the most interesting parts of the book for me was gradual change in Huck's attitude towards Jim he stops regarding the latter as a slave and starts thinking about him as an eual human being There is an obvious anti racist message in the book It also happens to have very funny laugh out loud moments It also contains satirical depiction of some aspects of life in small US cities in the early nineteenth century It contains some very poetic descriptions at times It also has some sad moments It is a classic book which is also still fun to read unlike numerous classics I can think of This is a book which teaches important lessons while still remembering that reading can be fun The book is written in the first person vernacular This is really the only example I can think of where it works It took a genius of Mark Twain to pull it off successfully If an inspiring author who thinks about using first or third person vernacular stumbles upon my review my advice would be do not unless you think your writing talent is on the same level as that of Samuel Langhorne Clemens The author wrote the novel in such a way that it became controversial countless number of times resulting in its banning it from public libraries and censorship One would think people would get over these controversies by now but to nobody's surprise some people still find things in the book to be offended at just take a look at the latest example will try to explain to the easily offended hypocrites why they are wrong in the least brain taxing way possible using simple ASCII artPoint                   ^                |                |              1 mile                |                |                v                OYou  |                |                You missed the point by one mileThis gives me an excellent opportunity to talk about limited copyright terms it seems to me we are heading for unlimited extension of copyright Limited copyright term means that regardless of current political climate and resulting censorship we will always have access to a legal unaltered copy of the book as in this case public winsA lot of people do not appreciate the book because they were forced to read it in high school If this was your only reading by all means give it another try to get a fresh prospective In conclusion this novel belongs to a relatively rare category of classics consisting of books that do not feel like you do heavy manual labor while you read them My rating is 45 stars rounded up out of my deepest respect for it PS The original illustrations are excellentPPS Project Gutenberg has a copy with original illustrations
