Surprisingly, this is one of the funniest books I've ever read. Twain injects humor into ordinary circumstances and creates extraordinary situations. My favorite is when Huck convinces Jim to etch stories of his captivity and torturous life in jail on metal plates and throw them out of the window of the small guest cabin behind Huck's aunt's house, where Jim had been staying only a week.

Huck's a mischievous and adventure-loving little guy you'll really enjoy simply because of his bold and fearless personality. Twain did well with this one and I recommend it.

I had read it when I was younger and wanted to read as a adult. Just wonderful Mr Twain sure knew how to write. Just picks you up and sets you down in a different time. I could feel the heat, feel the river and so enjoyed it.

I can understand why this book is studied, but I also understand why there's confusion over whether or not it's a true satire. Not for me, although if you like action-based stories, you might like it.

Great classic portrait of American life back in the day. One of my favorites. Simple language and easy read for the casual reader.
