Can't believe I've never read this before. I believe it was probably pulled from the reading lists because of the n-word usage and other language and activities that are now deemed offensive or inappropriate. But the book is written well from a young boy's perspective. I like all Mark Train's writings. He was a funny guy.

a good read tells us the story of tom, a young boy in a lazy town by the river mississippi. the beginning was good but the adventure at the end was a bit urealistic
This novel at first glance may seen to be very childish.

If you want to relax, this book is a good choice. The way as well as the vocabularies the author wrote the story are pretty simple and easy to understand. I think the boys in the story are cute, the way they think, the way the speak and even the way Tom Sawyer "shows his talent to catch the girl's attention" is naughty! I think this book is great for the beginners.
I just watched an awesome show about the life of Mark Twain. I knew he was a literary giant, but I didn't know he was so interesting...anyway, it made me want to revisit Tom and Huck...and I feel silly having not read any of his other books, so I guess I should read those too.
Fun abridged version of Tom Sawyer. I've never actually read the unabridged version, I've only ever seen the Disney movie, "Huck." Reading this is fun tale of a mischievious boy makes me grateful he doesn't live under my roof - only in the form of imagination.
