Творческой удачей американского писателя Марка Твена (настоящее имя Самюэль Ленхорн Клеменс) стали романы "Приключения Тома Сойера" и "Приключения Гекльберри Финна". Но если историю приключений веселого, живого, озорного Тома Сойера можно назвать одной из самых лучезарных книг в мировой литературе, то повествование о Геке Финне исполнено трагизма. По мнению Эрнеста Хемингу...more

I don't understand why these are only listed as one book- I distinctly remember reading Tom Sawyer, and then some years later, reading Huck Finn. Anyways, I liked them both although I recall particularly appreciating the latter. As far as I recall, Tom Sawyer was basically just a fun read, whereas Huck Finn seemed more of a social commentary, with a certain dark brooding about it. I read these both ages ago, prolly when i was about 13 or 14; I would definitely recommend.

First off, this is the first time I've listened to the unabridged version. For those of us naive enough to believe that the two American Folk heroes in this book are merely rambunctious teenagers looking for adventure, the real story will come as a complete shock.

Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are budding psychopaths.

It's not like its completely their faults either. They both have a skewed sense of morality that was influenced by their upbringing and culture. Huck was abused badly and then ab...more

Correct start date for my reading Huck Finn is some time in the Fall of 1983 about when Mr G was reading aloud to the class of us sixth-graders but being as how I suppose we all preferred the Ray Bradbury and Stephen King short stories we didn't get so very far in ole Huck's autobiography. Forward a few states and years and Mrs Rule tried to teach us Huck Finn in eighth grade. (Bless her soul, the only competent teacher in a school staffed by monkeys.) I did my damnedest to avoid reading much of...more

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
By Mark Twain
Review by Anneliese Edge


I can honestly say I have never been to the Mississippi River, but the author of the this great American novel made me feel as if I were actually with Huck and Jim on their many adventures down this historical river. The novel is about a young boy named Huckleberry Finn who is searching for adventure and is longing for freedom. This young boy was taken away by his drunk of a father because he wanted to possess the money Huc...more

I read Tom and Huck, and skipped the third book (at least for the time being). I read Tom Sawyer as a kid, and managed to make it this far in life without ever having read Huck Finn before!

Tom is just good entertainment and nothing more, loaded with nostalgia for the childhood everyone wishes he had had -- running loose on summer nights, exploring islands and haunted houses, adventure and peril and hidden treasure to be won.

Huckleberry Finn is pretty amazing, for its loving description of the r...more

This the best volume without annotations, as it compactly contains both The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, with the split in the middle that explains the former is the story of a boy, and the latter is the story of a man.

The former captures the spirit of boyhood extremely well, with an unrivaled sense of humor and ignorance. It's just anecdotal enough to be read in tiny doses or in a steady stream, and builds to a satisfying climax - though plot is always in thi...more

I reread this and liked it a lot more. My first review is below this one. I got to thinking about narrators who reveal things about themselves unintentionally. Plus I liked Jim a lot more. Definately a sloppy book, but Huck is great. Kinda sad how he is great and doesn't realize it.

The language in this book and the style of narration are what make Huck Finn. I am not interested in the movement of the plot which tires me in keeping track of where the hell they are going. But that is lazy attenti...more

I like Huck's story better than Tom's. Probably because it is darker. Tom's story is alright, he's a very smart and creative kid and he sometimes made me laugh, especially the part when he was asked about the first two disciples during Sunday School and he answered David and Goliath, haha...

Anyway, Huck's story is better because it gives more insight on the real life and people along the Mississippi river when there's still slavery. Huck surely met with various, interesting characters during his...more

I simply hate the way it is written. Yes, I know the southern American language shapes the characters and makes them unique, but damn it, it takes forever to read. Old medieval English is more understandable than this crap. I'll take Shakespeare any day.
The story is lazing along and, to be honest, quite boring most of the time. There are so many detours and unnecessary details that even though the book is not that long, it feels like the length of a heavy Russian drama. I can honestly say that I...more

Not sure what else I can add to the mountains of praise these two books have received over the years. Clearly, they are are classics of American literature that deserve to be read in their original form by all American high school students. I think that what I liked best about these two books is the innocence and simplicity of the era. While kids today are busy with TV, movies, computer games, social media, and cell phones, Tom, Huck and their friends could entertain themselves for hours on end...more

This review is on "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn".
I'm studying Huck Finn for an exam question this semester on whether or not it is a racist book or not. Well, I vehemently contend that is isn't. What Twain has done with this book is short of perfection, in terms of first-person narration. It is all here. The vernacular and the innocence, as well as the moral growth and maturity of it's prepubescent narrator, Huck Finn. I can understand why it is often called 'The Great American Novel', as...more

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, is about the life and times of a boy named Huckleberry Finn. After running away from home, Huck hides off in a near by island, and while at the island he gets to know and continues his adventures with Jim, a runaway slave. I really enjoyed the book because it was fun to read, unpredictable, and I liked how Mark Twain made the book feel like it was written by Huck himself. It's a good book, and I would recommend it.

June Ahern
Mark Twain was a writing genius as he captured a time in American history and the lives of people living in the South. I'm chucking my way through Huck's adventures with Tom showing up recently. Read this as a teen and rereading as a senior with much change of my outlook on the story. Completed - again - since I've read this read this story way back in the olden days. A good read for sure!
Sam
Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are two of the most iconic American characters, and this volume contains both of their stories. The first - Tom Sawyer's - is a good, general read, but the second - Huck's - is where Mark Twain really pulls out all his stops. He tackles some of the deepest issues of his America, namely, slavery and abolition, and creates an incredible satiric novel.
Jennifer
I LOVED this novel as a child. Reading as an adult, I found that I wasn't quite so engrossed but I did enjoy it and appreciated the author's style of writing. I found myself paying less attention to the story which I knew and more to the writing and language. A great period tale.
Matthew
What the fuck is wrong with people who want to change the vocabulary of this book? There is a point to using the word "nigger" in it. If you can't understand why, then you're a moron.

You listen to me, Tom Sawyer. You say I'm a free man now, and perhaps I am. But old Jim is not going to run away and leave one of his friends with a bullet in his leg! So I'm staying right here until a doctor comes.

You cannot call yourself an American if you have not read this book. Thus, if you are not American, it may be quite irrelevant to your literary canon.
Michelle
Not as much fun as Huckleberry Finn, but then when I re-read Huck, Tom was the most annoying part. He's such a bone-head.
Julia
I read this book as a assignment for english class and I got to say that I had a hard time with it at first. English is not my mother tongue and therefore southern american english was really hard to read.
I looked around for a audio version of it and find a really good one. So if you find this book hard to understand, I recommend you listen to it whilst reading. It helps a lot.
Anyway, this book made me feel both bored and confused but I gotta say that it also made me laugh and even enjoy some...more

Two reviews for the price of one since this is a consolidated edition.
Twain obviously is an institution of American literature and with good cause. I have never seen another writer capture not just the voice of a child but the sound and feel of a dialect.
I'm a little bit torn about Tom Sawyer, entertaining but also with certain things that drive me a touch batty. The narrative structure itself is a little disjointed, living up to the title, "the adventures of...." it should almost be looked at...more

The story The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer, written by Mark Twain is about a boy named Tom Sawyer who has a ton of adventures and pretends to be a bunch of things. He tricks his friends into doing his work and he drives his aunt Polly crazy. The setting is a Mississippi River town in mid 1830's. He has adventures with his friends Huck and Joe Harper. The thing about Tom is he not only gets himself in trouble but he is extremely convincing with other boys. He makes up stories and gets other little bo...more

The proposer began with a brief introduction to the life of Samuel Clemens, whose pen name was Mark Twain. ("Mark Twain" was a Mississippi River term: the second mark on the line used to measure safe depth for a steamboat.)
He was born in 1835, and grew up in Missouri beside the Mississippi River. The two books are set in the period of his own childhood, before the American Civil War. As a child, the proposer had received a copy of Tom Sawyer as a birthday present. The proposer wanted to see if t...more

Tom Sawyer is a wonderful work for children, but even better for adults. Twain captures the spirit of childhood as Tom moves from one adventure to the next. The scenes in Sunday School and church are especially good in this regard, as even the smallest thing becomes distracting, or as Tom's ulterior motives drive him to surprising actions. Further, the main characters of the book are fully formed, which results in a certain weightiness to the proceedings as the danger increases. The whole notion...more

Huck Finn Book Review
What do you think about the book “The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn?” Well me, I really didn’t like it that much. To me this book was confusing, races and some parts of this book was very boring. If you don’t catch the beginning of a book, it is going to be hard to follow the rest. This book was just not for me.
First, to me this book was confusing. The reason why this book was confusing because it was difficult to read. Especially because of the way that they use to talk in...more

Recommended to Ashley by: my ward book group for October
So even though this edition of Tom Sawyer has both Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, this time I only read Tom Sawyer. This is my first time reading Tom Sawyer since I was pretty young, and when I read it then it was a simplified version with lots of pictures. I love this story though and it took me back to when I used to read it when I was younger. Mark Twain is such an amazing writer and he does such a great job and giving his readers classic and real life characters, ones you will never forget...more

OVERALL 3 stars

Reading these two famous stories together in one volume immediately questions the idea that they are two episodes of the same continuing adventure. The picaresque novels about the boyhood friends may involve some of the same characters, and indeed one begets the other, but the tenor, complexity and theme of the Huck Finn novel is, for the most part, very different to the first.

Samuel Clemens based the boyhood tales on his upbringing in Hannibal, Missouri, introducing the character...more

This was the most recent choice of my book club and I have to say, I have learned more about human comprehension with this book than with any other book we have read. First, I always read more than one book at a time, I read a fiction, a non-fiction, groups of short stories and the book club selection and I have no problem going from book to book, remembering what each book is about and comprehending each book I am reading as well. The largest percentage of readers from the book club cannot see...more
