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.

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

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.

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.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a sequel of sorts. First came The Adventures of Tom Sawyer which Huckleberry Finn was a character in just as Tom Sawyer was in this one. In this adventure Huckleberry runs away from his alcoholic father and along the way runs into a slave Jim, who is trying to gain his freedom. As they stop in towns along the river they always seem to run into trouble.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was more enjoyable to read on my own then it was to read for school. Huck definitely has a original imagination to get them through all the hijinks they go through.

I felt that by the Tom Sawyer showed up the book could and probably should have ended. Many of the people in the town were pretty gullible to believe Huck, Tom and other characters like the Duke or King.

An Interesting read. Not sure I understand why it is a classic except that is by Mark Twain. I could see the authors humor throughout the book, which he was known for.
