Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain & E.W. Kemble Book Summary

One of the greatest — and one of the most controversial — novels in American history, complete with the illustrations from the original 1884 printing! What begins as a sequel to Mark Twain's incredibly popular The Adventures of Tom Sawyer grows into an ambitious, sprawling, funny, and uniquely American epic. Huck Finn is a mischievous boy, caught between a confining life with his legal guardian and an abusive life under his drunkard father. So naturally, he fakes his own death, teams up with a runaway slave named Jim, and takes off on a raft down the Mississippi River. The duo's ensuing adventures offer a chance for Twain to satirize the bygone world of the antebellum South, most notably taking a sometimes scathing, sometimes troubling, look at racism. The book remains one of the most essential, and one of the most entertaining, works in American literature.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Mark Twain & E.W. Kemble) Book Reviews

Great TitleThe story is well developed and ties in Tom Sawyer quite seamlessly. This book is very sweet and really shows and demonstrates slavery and the development of becoming a free man in a time of racial inequality with the help of a boy with a troubled home and an adventure ahead of him. Definitely recommend and this is a great classic everyone must read..Score: 5/5

HUCKLEBERRY FACELIFTThis is a neat-o book. It's a dandy DOO DAH day of a literature and I'd recommend it to your local taxidermist and or goldfish. Or perhaps a husky dog. 0-0.Score: 5/5

Huck FinnAwesome!! Great classic!! I think everyone should read this book!.Score: 5/5

The great American novelThere's nothing else I can say that others haven't said better, but this is truly a wonderful book. I'm glad I can get the "old" version instead of the "new" one (which is political correctness and ignorance run amuk, but I digress). An assault on racism and an exposé of the hypocrisy of Southern "chivalry", this book is THE American novel.Score: 5/5

The adventures of Huck FinnJust finished reading this literary classic. I was surprised to see how even after almost 150 years Mark Twain's humor still rings a bell. I must confess that is is uncomfortable at times because of the way the slaves were depicted and treated, as well as the constant use of the dreaded n-word. I would love to share this book with my kids but feel that their little heads might get too confused with reality and the writings of that time. Truly enjoyed it although it was very repetitive in some sections but wonderful writing all around..Score: 4/5

A Very Meaningful Read!I just finished re-reading this book after decades devoted to becoming an adult. Well aware of the fact that the book has been banned or "cleaned up" to remove the N word, I sat down to read it with an open mind and only vague recollections of the details of the story development. What a wonderful book! It should be required reading at University level for those studying sociology AND literature. The narrative easily establishes the root of our racial difficulties today and the hypocrisies of racial discrimination. With today's sensitivities surrounding the use of the N word I have to endorse the decision NOT to include it on reading list for youngsters as the titillation of the word would surely overload the ability to see the reality of the social mores of the times in which it was written and describes. But it clearly and vividly paints a picture of a social structure that was entrenched and endorsed as both acceptable and moral. The confusion that Huck feels when Tom agrees to help free Jim is a snapshot of the dilemma; freeing Jim feels like the right thing to do but it goes against good breeding and the righteous behavior expected of a boy from a good family. This is an insight that also helps to explain the ease with which the N word is used; it has no more emotional impact than saying "woman" as a descriptive of gender, but in today' s world it is rightfully despicable and a hateful word...so much so that I cannot bring myself to use it, even in quotes. I'm so glad I re-read it now that I have age and experience under my belt!.Score: 5/5

This made me laugh, and smile, and cringe!I hadn’t read this since jr high more than 50 years ago. So, I had forgotten a lot. The only thing I remembered was the elaborate escape for Jim that included snakes, rats, a journal written in blood etc. I remember being so bored with all that unnecessary folderol! But rereading it after all these years, all the backfires of To ‘s grand designs, rats in the house, snakes dropping from the ceiling, and counting spoons made me laugh out loud..Score: 4/5

Book is great, but...I like the fact that the original illustrations are included, but the formatting of this version on iBooks isn't the best. This is the only version I've found where the illustrations seem to be re-mastered a bit, but other things are weirdly shown. For example, the dropped capitals at the beginning of chapters sometimes appear on the wrong page, leaving the first word of a chapter to not have a first letter. Other than some really weird formatting, I like this version, and wish there were some way that could be fixed..Score: 3/5

ReviewThe adventures of huckleberry Finn is written by the author Mark Twain. This book accounts the fictional adventures of the thirteen year old boy named Huckleberry Finn. The character has appeared in the book "the adventures of Tom Sawyer" Huck is a vulgar child who created a gang with fellow friends planning to rob carts on the trade routes, capture people and ransom them and kidnap women. The book follows his own adventure in finding what is right, very similar to a coming of age novel. I have given this novel a 7/10 as it is very interesting and funny but quite vulgar and would be more suited towards younger boys..Score: 4/5
