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.

While this book is considered a classic against not only slavery, but the stupidity of humanity, I'm not certain it isn't overrated. That said, Mark Twain's insightful and well-placed barbs do provide amusement and a stinging critique of society post-Civil War. I also like it just because people have tried to ban it.

I loved that we see this tale through the eyes of a young boy, complete with his speach style and outlook on the world. A good book that I would recomend to anyone interested in US history of the period, coming of age stories, or just adventure mixed with wit and humor.

I'm in agreement with Michelle F. Read banned books! This is a classic that has been enjoyed by generations.
