    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 ...

    "I about made up my mind to pray; and see if I couldn't try to quit being the kind of boy I was, and be better. So I kneeled down. But the words wouldn't come. Why wouldn't they? It warn't no use to try and hide it from Him. Nor from me, neither. I knowed very well why they wouldn't co...

    I had mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, it's clear that Mark Twain was progressive for his day, satirizing the topsy-turvy morals of the slavery-era south. His heroes are two people at the bottom rung of the social ladder - a runaway slave, and the son of the town dru...

    825. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn = Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain 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 Stat...

    THE Greatest American Novel? Well... No wonder the Spanish think themselves superior with their Quixote, undoubtedly a blueprint for this mischievous Every Boy! Huck Finn is the full embodiment of THE American Fantasy: mainly that dire misconception that the protagonist of the ...

    This is a rant. I found Huckleberry Finn on my bookshelf had been changed to Huckleberry Finn Robotic Edition. Some very pc "authors" and "editors" took it upon themselves to change the N word to 'robot'. They then rewrote the book to take away any mention of humans and to 'roboticise'...

    Hemingway said American fiction begins and ends with Huck Finn, and he's right. Twain's most famous novel is a tour de force. He delves into issues such as racism, friendship, war, religion, and freedom with an uncanny combination of lightheartedness and gravitas. There are several mom...

    One of my absolute favourite books, which I have read multiple times. A major classic. If at all possible, get an edition with the original illustrations. ___________________________________ (Expanded review based on conversation with JORDAN) Here in Switzerland, l'affaire du mo...

    Very funny children's book with great lessons. Great being an understatement. My earliest memory of this book was when I was in third year high school. My eldest brother who was already in college was vacationing at home. One day, he asked my other older brother who was in fourth ye...

    Having never so much as fingertipped a Twain until this moment, in the last rattle of my twenties, this caustic racial satire packaged as a rootin?-tootin? Boys Own romp proved a pleasant surprise, rather like some other late-in-the-game experiences in my life, such as listening to...

    Now, how in the nation is a body going to start this review? Well, I'll be ding-busted! I usually don?t like reading colloquial prose style, accented dialogue and dialects. All too often they require additional effort to decipher and are just plain irritating. However, I have to m...

    For some reason, I've delayed reading this book for many years. Actually, I started it a few times but couldn't get past the language-the use of the n-word and the dialect. This time I stuck it out and I'm so glad I did. Huck Finn is a combination boy's adventure story and biting so...

    After reading Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, I realized that I had absolutely nothing to say about it. And yet here, as you see, I have elected to say it anyway, and at great length. Reading this novel now, at the age of mumble-mumble, is a bit like arriving at the circus after th...

    Huck Finn is miles weightier than Tom Sawyer, and it's almost the Great American Novel it's called. Tom Sawyer was all fun and games - Don Quixote, as he points out himself, "all adventures and more adventures." Huck Finn's a different person; he's concerned with doing the right thing....

    I really quite enjoyed this well-written satire of slavery-era America. I reads a lot like a Dickens novel, very episodic and with a youthful protagonist. I'll put aside the fact that Huck Finn may be the most annoying character in all of literature and say that this is a great America...

    3.5 "There warn't no home like a raft, after all." I mean, at the beginning there's a notice that reads "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 wi...

    I've read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn many times: first as a teenager, then as a young man in college and until last week, as a thirty-something adult. Each reading brought new insights about Twain's take on the American experience. He created unforgettable and timeless charact...

    Review 4 out of 5 stars to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, one of the "Great American Novels" by Mark Twain published in 1884. I've actually read this book twice: once as a 14-year-old and again in college as part of my many American English courses. My interpretations have ex...

    Review updated on 16.02.2017. Ask 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 ...

    "All right, then, I'll GO to hell" -- This is Huck's decision, rather than turn in his friend, Jim. They had been through many things together. Here's the story.... Huck had faked his death and ran away from his drunken father. On Jackson?s Island, in the middle of the Miss...

    Pretty good, kinda silly - but I think that is what Twain was going for - 3.5 stars. Twain is the king of the Yarn. Huckleberry Finn is a collection of outlandish tales all with lies and trickery at their heart. At the time of its release I am sure it became a bible for scoundrels a...

    Why have I never read Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn before? Was it Twain?s copious use of the N word? (I vaguely recall a primary school teacher abruptly halting a class read-aloud session, perhaps because of that.) Was it the air of earnest solemnity that surrounds so-called classi...

    2016 RE-READ I read this when I was like ten or something and all I remembered was that it was one of my favorites. Here I am, 26 years later, having read it again, and loving it perhaps more than I did then. I don?t remember Mark Twain being so damn hilarious. I mean I was in hys...

    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer opened the door to this book, my favorite of the two. I?ve never been a fan of the leader of the pack, I?ve always been drawn to the quieter buddy. Not the buddy that blindly follows but the thinking man, the one that sits back to watch and learn from t...

    More mature and longer than its cousin, Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn remains an incredible kid's story of initiation and adventure. Yes, there is some racial stereotypes in the depiction of Jim, but let's give Mark Twain the benefit of the doubt that he is trying to tell a good story and is s...
