really liked it
Read in April, 2008

In Twain's Huckleberry Finn, Huck's father is a menacing drunk who crops up throughout the novel, often making trouble for Huck. John Clinch's Finn takes the father as the main character and describes just how Finn became so cruel - with many of the scenes intersecting with those of the original novel. What I really liked was that Clinch did not try to imitate Twain's use of dialect, rather, he creates his own version that is original yet convincing.
