it was amazing

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 abandoned by his father. His dad only comes back when he finds out Huck is now wealthy. Huck also believes he is destined for to go to hell because he wants to do the right thing, but his culture believes its wrong (freeing a slave).

Tom and his brother Sid are orphans. (Although, judging by Tom's behavior I think he would probably be the evil mastermind even if this were not the case.)

Poor kids and their totaly messed up lives!

The boys are clever, but not very logical. And they are poorly educated. And they lie for no particular reason at all. Crazy.

On a side note: Huck should have died, like, ten times during his trip down the Mississippi River. And, eating snakes is gross!
