Mark Twain was nothing short of genius, and this book is the perfect evidence of that fact. The beauty of Mark Twain's stories is that he speaks from the true point of view of his characters, as if the reader is also one of the townsfolk he's describing. The author admits that Tom is based on his own boyhood---perhaps that is why he spins the tale so perfectly. In any case, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is not only a classic and an unobstructed view into small town life of the past, but a fun casual read that I enjoy as much as an adult as I did as a child.
