I liked this book a lot. The experience of encapsulating every chapter into a poem was a fun but challenging experience. Twain had a lot more than just a kids book in mind when he wrote this book. He was writing to all people who were caught up in the political question of the time: "Should one leave slavery alone, or do something about this issue?"

I however, did grow tired of Tom and felt like grabbing him by the lapels and screaming, "Grow up Kid!" But it was merely a book, and Tom Sawyers merely a fictional character, so I restrained myself.

This book is an astute answer to the political cross hairs of the nineteenth century.

Gregory Rothbard I liked this book a lot. I gained a lot by writing a verse like poem for every chapter. I also understand that Twain had a lot more than just a kids book in mind with this book. He was writing to all people who were caught up in the political question of the time: "Should one leave slavery alone, or do something about this issue." This book is an astute answer to Uncle Tom's Cabin.
