The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Too often, classic books are abandoned for newer, “flashier” novels. However, there is a reason why such books have been called classics. I recently finished The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, and it was amazing! The book takes the reader on a journey down the Mississippi River, artfully blended with a commentary of American culture. Huck Finn and Jim, a runaway slave, seek freedom down the river and meet lots of crazy characters and new friends. Through Huck’s point of view, the story unfolds with humor and irony as Mark Twain emphasizes some of the problems in America, such as slavery and feuding. I’m not going to reveal the ending (I will say that it’s exciting and rather unexpected), because I hope everyone will read the book. When (not “if”) you do, you will love it!

    I loved Huck Finn! I also saw Liberty University put on a theatre version of it that was incredible. It was very neat comparing the two–book and play.
