Laughed until I cried for several pages for the first time in years. I had to stop to catch my breath to make it paragraph by paragraph. This book is good therapy for the soul as well as engaging literature. I didn't appreciate it as a teenager the way I do now at 46.

Considered one of the Top 10 classic novels (my #6) of the western world. Contains humour, and many interesting characters and situations as the boys travel the Mississippi by raft. See my GerryD Lists for other great novels.

Rereading a classic---I love doing this every summer.

Historically interesting, but very hard to read due to the accents of the characters.

Speechless. I was left speechless. This book was the first ever to make me laugh, cry, smile, frown. It won my heart right over more than any other novel has. I fell in love with the book and Huck's character who gradually changes. He is very smart and has such a sense of adventure it's incredible. The way the characters pronounce things is the way it's written in the book. So you can really tell how the character speaks and it adds depth to their character. I highly recommend this book to all readers and especially the ones into adventure. Go on ahead and give it a shot! You won't regret it.

OMG is is a really good book if you understand what it is trying to say it's really easy to read the book. Read it and you will get your imagination started.But the thing is it is quite difficult to understand this book because the way they talk is different. The spelling is spelt by the way they communicated. But otherwise READ IT!!!

"You don't know about me, without you have a read a book by the name of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," but that ain't no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly. There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth. That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lies, one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. Aunt Polly - Tom's Aunt Polly, she it - and Mary, and the Widow Douglas, is all told about in that book - which is mostly a true book; with some stretchers, as I said before."
