Yeah, I know, I know...

Honestly? This would've been a four, or maybe even five-star book if it hadn't been for the last fifth or so. I found it drawn out and dreadfully boring. Basically, what happend is that Mark Twain re-uses a joke from the start of the book, and it falls so flat that you wouldn't believe it. Tom Sawyer, a character who had been childishly endearing before, became incredibly annoying, so much so that I'm not gonna read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer unless someone forces me. He's just that annoying.

All in all, I found myself struggling to finish a book which I had previously been enjoying immensely. That kind of shift is really jarring.

Still, I liked Huck and Jim very much. They really are timeless characters, and I'm very happy I read this book!

But seriously... Tom Sawyer.
