Review of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn

mark_twain_cave I listened to Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain, on audiobook.  Part of it was really funny, and the rest I didn’t really get.  Some of the time, I didn’t get what was going on.

In this book, Tom Sawyer, a young conman, who wishes to be a pirate or an outlaw robber when he grows up, searches for a treasure of great value (lots of money.)

I highly recommend this book to people who want a funny read.

I visited the Mark Twain Cave, the same one where Tom and Becky were lost.  At the beginning, this cave has glimmering rocks, then later on, I found something that looked like a crystal.  Later on, I found out that this was the purest form of limestone, but it was so pretty that I kept it.

Huck Finn doesn’t have the best life, but he tries to help a Black slave named Jim from slavery.  They must face the horrors of the Mississippi River such as the monstrous rapids, and the large rocks, and the big steamers. 

At the end, the runaway slave, Jim, was attempted to be freed by Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer.  I can’t tell you everything, but I can say that the main idea of the story is that slavery is wrong, which I totally agree with.

If you want a good adventure raft story, this is the book to read.

I watched both Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn in movie format. Tom and Huck were lucky to have so many adventures, but they seemed to include to many dead people! Especially when Huck's dead dad fell on Jim!! That was just down right nasty, don't you agree?

My Dad is wondering if you found Indian Joe's treasure?

cat,

It is kind of gross if the dead body fell on the guy, but I think that's only in the movie, not the book.

I doubt that the tiny rock that I found is Injun Joe's load of gold.
