There is a lot of humor and satire in this book, and it is enjoyable to read for the most part. This is a great American classic that explores the difficulties of growing up in the south, with strict and controlling parents. It was funny, and at times, a little sad.

Huck and Tom's dynamic is fascinating and engaging, and it adds a lot to the overall charm

funny and timeless

Really sweet story! It's clear from the start that Huck Finn is a unique young man. The story's tempo fluctuates; it slows down and then speeds up again. It's a truly great book and I can now see why it remains popular even today.

classic tale of adventure, a classic american novel

This is America's greatest epic, on par with Moby Dick.

Takes place in 19th-century Mississippi, before slavery was abolished. The dialect takes a bit of effort to get used to.

A classic that everyone should try.

a great classic

I had to read this for school years ago. It has much more significance to me today than when I first read it.
