I can't believe I'd never done this before. Dirty, not-bathed very well, and sitting alongside a large body of water--and thus feeling a strong tie with Tom Sawyer--I read THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER and HUCKLEBERRY FINN one right after another. Strongly recommended! Years ago someone must have made you, like me, read these books but I suggest readers try again. TOM is pure fun. HUCKLEBERRY FINN is purely disturbing in its portrayal of Tom & (somewhat) Huck's disavowal of the brutality and consequences of slavery.

SIDE NOTE: In the last year I've also read MY JIM (a contemporary novel about Jim's wife) and FINN (a contemporary novel about Huck Finn's father). I recommend both!
