The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by: Mark Twain: The story of Huck as he tries to save a slave named Jim, helping him to become a free man. Traveling the Mississippi Valley, Huck meets Jim, and the two begin their journey. There are many trials and tribulations along the way that the two of them have to face. The novel is filled with many hard times, and many times where the reader feels sorry for Jim. There is a lot of emotion that was put into this novel, and this story. Twain really got into the minds of both these characters to let the reader feel what they were feeling. Drawing on real events to create this tale, this just gives it an extra layer of facts to make everything a little more believable. Not only is this novel emotional, but it is hilarious; filled with a lots of witty dialogue, this helped with moving the plot along. A combination of really good dialogue and really well written action, and adventure scenes makes for a great novel. This mixture, along with the subject matter is what makes this novel something that stands time.

  1. Great review for this book Meghan. I’ve never been a massive fan of classic novels, and in fact now I don’t have to read them for my English GCSE class back in high school I tend to avoid them, but I’m really glad to see you enjoyed this one. The fact that it’s a story that stands the test of time is great as well, and I guess what really makes it a classic too! 🙂
