Finished it once again since it is on our list and I found that I really wanted to walk around barefoot after reading it. I love the characters and the very fun story they tell. Huck just can't seem to avoid follows him around no matter where he goes or what he does. I am glad we read this one!

message 7: by Julie (new)

Julie | 15 comments I agree, Rebecca! Huck definitely finds trouble everywhere he turns! I always loved the light tone to the story despite the dangers and scrapes Huck and Jim faced. I think Mark Twain succeeding very well in describing events as they would be told by a boy rather than an adult.

Lauren (letaylor13) | 4 comments I'm a bit late on this discussion but unfortunately I haven't finished Huckleberry Finn, I just couldn't get into it, which was a shame.

Kathryn (kathryn3) | 28 comments I just recently read this too; at the end of last year, I think. I know it's practically pointless to state the obvious, but, my god, it's good! :P

Sydney Thompson | 1 comments I loved this book. I especially enjoyed reading Huck's internal monologue of grappling with moral dilemmas.

message 11: by QNPoohBear (new)

QNPoohBear I studied this book in school in Junior High and then again in college. I got different things out of it at different times. This book is on the banned/challenged list because of the use of the N word. It takes an informed mind to understand that the story is told from Huck's point-of-view. That's all he knows. It's all he's been taught by the adults in his life in the beginning of the book and by the end, after his journey, he comes to form his OWN opinions.

I'll have to find my copy and read it again.

Indra | 1 comments I read it a year ago and I really liked the adventures! But I can't remember specific things, so I will just read it again :). I think this is a book I can keep on reading again and again, without getting bored.
