One of my absolute favourite books, which I have read multiple times. A major classic. If at all possible, get an edition with the original illustrations. In fact, I'm embarrassed to admit that I hadn't even heard of it until Jordan gave me a few pointers earlier today. So, no doubt all this has been sa One of my absolute favourite books, which I have read multiple times. So, no doubt all this has been said before, but I still can't resist the temptation to add my two centimes worth.
In case you're as ignorant as I was about hot topics in the literary world, the furore concerns an edition of Huckleberry Finn in which the word 'nigger' has been systematically replaced with 'slave'. My initial response was plain surprise. One of the aspects of the book I enjoy most is Twain's appallingly exact ear for dialogue. He's reproducing the language actually used in the American South of the s, and this, above all, is what gives the novel its force; so why on earth would anyone want to change it?
For example, here's Huck's Paw in full flow: Why, looky here. There was a free nigger there from Ohio -- a mulatter, most as white as a white man. He had the whitest shirt on you ever see, too, and the shiniest hat; and there ain't a man in that town that's got as fine clothes as what he had; and he had a gold watch and chain, and a silver-headed cane -- the awfulest old gray-headed nabob in the State. And what do you think? They said he was a p'fessor in a college, and could talk all kinds of languages, and knowed everything.
And that ain't the wust. They said he could vote when he was at home. Well, that let me out. Thinks I, what is the country a-coming to? It was 'lection day, and I was just about to go and vote myself if I warn't too drunk to get there; but when they told me there was a State in this country where they'd let that nigger vote, I drawed out.
I says I'll never vote agin. Them's the very words I said; they all heard me; and the country may rot for all me -- I'll never vote agin as long as I live. And to see the cool way of that nigger -- why, he wouldn't a give me the road if I hadn't shoved him out o' the way. I says to the people, why ain't this nigger put up at auction and sold?
And what do you reckon they said? Why, they said he couldn't be sold till he'd been in the State six months, and he hadn't been there that long yet. There, now -- that's a specimen. They call that a govment that can't sell a free nigger till he's been in the State six months. Here's a govment that calls itself a govment, and lets on to be a govment, and thinks it is a govment, and yet's got to set stock-still for six whole months before it can take a hold of a prowling, thieving, infernal, white-shirted free nigger.
I'm sorry, but I'm honestly unable to see how anyone could think the above passage was racist or might be improved by substituting 'slave' for 'nigger'. It's incidents like this which create the popular European myth that Americans don't understand the concept of irony. If you're curious to know more about the tradition of improving great works of literature by removing dubious words, you might want to take a quick look at the Wikipedia article on Thomas Bowdler which Jordan and I were giggling over.
Bowdler, it turns out, had acted from the best of motives. When he was young, his father had entertained him by reading aloud from Shakespeare; but Later, Bowdler realised his father had been extemporaneously omitting or altering passages he felt unsuitable for the ears of his wife and children.
Bowdler felt it would be worthwhile to present an edition which might be used in a family whose father was not a sufficiently "circumspect and judicious reader" to accomplish this expurgation himself.
He undertook to create a suitably amended version. Or, to be exact, he got his sister to do it and then gave out the books under his own name. Again, his reasons were unimpeachable: I won't criticise Dr Bowdler or his equally well-meaning modern followers. I just think it's a shame Mark Twain never had the opportunity to write a story about them. View all 21 comments.
Pretty good, kinda silly - but I think that is what Twain was going for - 3. Twain is the king of the Yarn. Huckleberry Finn is a collection of outlandish tales all with lies and trickery at their heart. At the time of its release I am sure it became a bible for scoundrels and mischevious teens. This book is controversial, and even frequently banned, because of its portrayal of black slaves and the use of the N-word. I venture into shaky ground here by offering my opinion as I am white, bu Pretty good, kinda silly - but I think that is what Twain was going for - 3.
I venture into shaky ground here by offering my opinion as I am white, but I don't think I will cause too much trouble. I can accept that at the time of writing the words and language were fairly normal so as a time period piece it is true. However, I can't say I have read a book that takes place in that time period that so flippantly tosses the n-word around. Regarding banning of this book - I can definitely tell why some parents might be concerned about their kids reading this book.
I think a lot of it depends on how it is being taught - I would hope the teacher would put an emphasis on explaining the language being used. View all 12 comments. If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review.

Along the way, they encounter a deadly feud, a pair of con artists, and other characters from the pre-Civil War South.
All the while, Huck's conscience and basic decency wrestle with his society-bred ideas about race and slavery and right and wrong. I really quite enjoyed this well-written satire of slavery-era America.
I reads a lot like a Dickens novel, very episodic and with a youthful protagonist. I'll put aside the fact that Huck Finn may be the most annoying character in all of literature and say that this is a great American classic for a reason.
It's captivating, it's funny, and it's never boring. While it may not have aged very well, it's still an important text that covers a time when America was in its adolescent stage. View all 6 comments. This book swarms with key issues of Twain's -today's- America -world-, all properly backed up by irresistible humour and irony.
As I've said elsewhere before, T 3. As I've said elsewhere before, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is another of those books that, in my opinion, with their sole existence make the world a better place. Mar 06, MCOH rated it liked it. I had mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, it's clear that Mark Twain was progressive for his day, satirizing the topsy-turvy morals of the slavery-era south.
His heroes are two people at the bottom rung of the social ladder - a runaway slave, and the son of the town drunk. Though they're not valued by society, they turn out to be the two most honorable characters of the book.
And I appreciated the questions it raised, about how we construct our own sense of morality in the context of I had mixed feelings about this book. And I appreciated the questions it raised, about how we construct our own sense of morality in the context of broader social morals, and how we deal with potential conflicts between those two. I loved Huck for choosing to go to hell rather than turn in his friend. On the other hand, it's such a far-fetched farce, with so many over-the-top scenes, one crazy situation after another, so many coincidences, such silliness, that I had a hard time enjoying it.
At the end, Tom keeps adding all kinds of superfluous details into the escape plan, just to satisfy his sense of drama. The author seems to think this will be amusing - see how it's a funny game to Tom, see how he's influenced by all the adventure books he's ever read And I just wanted to smack the kid, and say, "A man's life is in danger! How dare you treat this like a game of make-believe! Just get him out of there, you idiot!
That style social satire, ironic farce, fable, whatever you want to call it can be a great way to make a point. But it's not the same as a novel with well-developed characters and a realistic plot. Sometimes I enjoy satire, but yesterday, I just wasn't in the mood. I felt like the atrocities committed in our country against African-Americans were just too horrific to laugh at. I have heard that people often protest this book when it appears on school curricula, because of the repeated use of the n-word.
I think I had an easier time accepting that word, because it reflected the common usage of the time, and it felt like part of the natural, authentic voice of the narrator. I had a harder time with the portrayal of Jim as a naive, superstitious, gullible, person, who seems completely dependent on a young white boy to figure out what to do.
He's more an archetype - the noble savage - than a real person. I think the main value of this book is as a historical artifact. You can see the important role it played if you look at what it was for the time it was written in, and how it influenced other books written in America. I'm glad to say, we've come a long way.

Oct 13, Rebecca McNutt rated it it was amazing Shelves: I used to hate this book when I was younger, but I'm glad I gave it another chance because there's so much more to it than I initially realized, and it's such an unforgettable and funny novel. Aug 07, James rated it really liked it Shelves: I've actually read this book twice: My interpretations have expanded with the second read, but it's still at the core, a very profound book worth reading at least once in a lifetime.
Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer appear in a few of Twain's novels, but it is in this one where Huck truly becomes a character, especially through his relationship with Jim. It's the type of book to openly challenge the norms and ideals of the midth century, relationships between various races, treatment towards fellow humankind.
Over years later, this book is still pertinent to society today. So much needs to evolve and change, and perhaps with literature, it will move a little more each day -- at least as one of the necessary driving forces. At times, I tried to forget that the book was calling out differences between treatment of ethnicity and race in America at the time.
I wanted to think about it also from the perspective of two human beings who needed each other for survival, growth, life experience and comfort. Being color-blind and able to connect with someone, even if you don't see them or no much about them, is an important lesson in life. And one so few of us have an opportunity to experience. One book can't change it.
One book can't truly explain it. But knowing what was happening years ago versus what is happening now is important. As is what people thought back then If you haven't read this, as an American, it's your responsibility. Understand the past and history. Know what it was like. Read it from year-old words. And decide what you can do to keep things moving forward at a quicker pace About Me For those new to me or my reviews I read A LOT.

Sep 10, Michael Finocchiaro rated it it was amazing Shelves: More mature and longer than its cousin, Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn remains an incredible kid's story of initiation and adventure.
Yes, there is some racial stereotypes in the depiction of Jim, but let's give Mark Twain the benefit of the doubt that he is trying to tell a good story and is sympathetic to the anti-slavery movement. An amazing tale that has not aged a bit!
Here I am, 26 years later, having read it again, and loving it perhaps more than I did then. I mean I was in hysteria I was laughing so hard.
I had to cover my mouth a few times when I burst out laughing when I was reading next to my sleeping beauty. I liked this so much that I bought a hard copy.
I plan to read it again and again.
He touched on some very deep, heartbreaking issues, all covered in lightheartedness. I remember reading this when I was young, then reading other books on slavery because of it. I felt that interest peaking again as I read it. That made me weep too. We sure have come a long way. Sep 08, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: Tom Sawyer was all fun and games - Don Quixote, as he points out himself, "all adventures and more adventures. He spends most of the novel helping a runaway slave escape, and he brilliantly represents a person judging the morals of society against the morals he's come up with himself, and ending up in the right place.
That's why Huck Finn isn't a racist novel: Twain means to show us how a person who approaches life honestly will come out against racism.
He's not subtle about it. And Twain pulls off this wonderful reversal near the end of the book: Sawyer suddenly view spoiler [reappears on the scene, pulling the same hijinks he always has, but now we see it through Huck's and Jim's eyes, and it's maddening. Huck wants to find the most direct solution to the problem of freeing Jim, who's been recaptured. Tom wants to complicate things, as he always does; rather than just pulling a loose board out and making off, Tom insists on digging under the wall, and loosing bugs into Jim's prison so he can be properly prisonerish, and finally warning the family about the impending escape to make the whole thing more dangerous.
Twain takes a leap in Huck Finn, showing us an adult world and then showing us what real stakes look like when Tom Sawyer gets a hold of them, and it's devastating to watch Tom toy with Jim's life this way. This radical flip is one of Twain's best moves, and it elevates Huck Finn considerably. But Jim, for all his humanity, is still problematic. He never drives anything forward himself, and his passivity makes me uncomfortable.
He's certainly shown to be kind, and we're allowed to see him weeping for his separated wife and children, and we get to see his heavily allegorical refusal to allow Tom to throw rattlesnakes into his prison to make it more realistic. We're allowed into Jim's humanity, yeah, but he never gets to drive the plot. At the end, when he realizes that he'd been a free man all along, and Huck didn't know it but Tom did and Tom was just playing I wanted a moment of anger from him.
Didn't he deserve it?
Shouldn't Jim have had a moment when he said, "What about my wife and children? In making Jim the co-lead but giving him no action, Twain failed Jim; so while this is an anti-racism book, it's not totally an enlightened one.
Jun 25, Apatt rated it it was amazing Shelves: Now, how in the nation is a body going to start this review? Well, I'll be ding-busted! All too often they require additional effort to decipher and are just plain irritating. However, I have to make an exception for Mark Twain because he does it better than anybody else I can think of.
There is never any confusion about the meaning and his colloquial narrative style and dialogue add a great deal of humour, charm Now, how in the nation is a body going to start this review? There is never any confusion about the meaning and his colloquial narrative style and dialogue add a great deal of humour, charm and atmosphere to the story.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn does not need any synopsis I think, as it is one of the most widely read novel of all time. At the most basic level it is an adventure yarn of a rough young lad and an escaped slave on a raft down the Mississippi River, both running away from unbearable circumstances, and meeting some very colorful characters along the river.
I find it to be a generally good-natured story in spite of some underlying dark themes like slavery, parental abuse and violence. The biting social satire is delightful and Twain seems to enjoy poking fun at his favorite targets of nice but dim gentility, racists, bigots, roughnecks, con men and the religious.
Huck is a wonderful protagonist who is easy to identify with. I have to wonder whether the people who want to ban the book actually bothered to read it. Twain is very compassionate toward the black characters in this book, and — as I mentioned earlier — Jim comes out of it shining brighter than anybody else. However, the funniest part of the book for me is when Huck is trying to explain the concept of a foreign language to Jim.
Certainly if you have never read it even once you should make a bee line for it. Wonderfully read performed by John Greenman. Thank you sir! A brother's freedom ain't no game man! Having read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer since reading this Huck Finn book I find that Tom in the previous book is just a naughty — kind of hyperactive — boy, not so despicable and borderline insane as he is in this book. That is some character arc!
Huck Finn — after his own adventures — has become much more mature. How do dat come? I got some of their jabber out of a book. S'pose a man was to come to you and say Polly-voo-franzy—what would you think? I wouldn't 'low no nigger to call me dat. It's only saying, do you know how to talk French? That's a Frenchman's way of saying it. Dey ain' no sense in it. On the bright side, this led to publication of The Hipster Huckleberry Finn where "nigger" is replaced with "hipster" to placate the hip and sensitive.

Petualangan Tom Sawyer (Graphic Novel) by Margaret C. Hall (3 star ratings)
He created unforgettable and timeless characters, the likes of which still exist from sea to shining sea. Drifting down the Mississippi River with Huck and Jim is a sublime experience. Twain captures the majesty and serenity of the river and uses it as a powe I've read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn many times: Twain captures the majesty and serenity of the river and uses it as a powerful metaphor for their troubled lives.
Both are fleeing civilization because it represents an intolerable set of rules; Huck's life has been shaped by poverty, cruelty and neglect and Jim is an escaped slave. Huck, though still a boy, is an astute observer and Jim becomes the first and only adult who deserves his respect and loves him unconditionally. Twain published this at the close of Reconstruction and the birth of Jim Crow.
For all his minstrel show characteristics, Jim is morally superior to all the scoundrels they encounter, particularly the King and the Duke, two grifters who hijack the raft to save their own necks.
In Huck's increasingly radical voice, Twain skewers all kinds of injustices: Masquerading as an adventure story, it is a celebration of the glories of the Mississippi, a comic tour de force and a ringing indictment of American malfeasance and hypocrisy. This is arguably the Great American Novel. Just imagine what Twain would have to say about our current state of affairs. View all 14 comments. Aug 15, K. Very funny children's book with great lessons.
Great being an understatement. My earliest memory of this book was when I was in third year high school. My eldest brother who was already in college was vacationing at home. One day, he asked my other older brother who was in fourth year high school to read this book aloud to him. I think this was to coach my other older brother on his accent because he was to enter college in the city and join my eldest brother. People in our province pronounce wor Very funny children's book with great lessons.
246 Petualangan Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain [Www.pustaka78.Com]
Thicker but the fonts were bigger and with illustrations. It must be an abridged edition. Curious of what the book was also about, I tried reading it and when I realized that it was about American boys traversing the stretch of Mississippi river on a raft, I dropped the book and read komiks again.
Why should I spend time to learn about two boys with a colored man I based this only on some of the illustrations when I reading fantasy komiks heroes was then my idea of good literature. Last December, my good friend Shiela and I decided to read this as buddies.
I only decided to continue when I felt that the storm was over. Then also of course, I found that this edition should be the unabridged version quite difficult to understand especially because of the way the people in the South of America used to speak.
Prior to finishing this book, I thought that those two real incidents — my two brothers enjoying this book and the storm my friend Shiela and I found us in - would just be the only things that I would remember when I hear people talk about this book. The book itself is memorable. However, it is multilayered and can be read by adults if only those adults would focus on its underlying theme: I think Mark Twain designed the book to appeal to children in his desire to contribute, no matter how small, in opening the eyes of the American people and even the whole world on the flight of discriminated races.
He definitely shied away from on-your-face preachy tone and instead opted for a funny and light mood that was what one would feel at the beginning and the end of the book. The realization of the important and critical theme — the seriousness of the book - is sandwiched in the middle when Huck and Jim are on the raft and encountering all those people and situations that definitely opened the eyes of the young white boy Huck.
I disagree. For the meantime, Huck and Tom are still boys at the end of the story and they still need some time to play and grow up. I think that teachers in school, will just have to be strict in clearly explaining that the word is now derogatory and should never be uttered anymore — whether in school, at home, in public or even in private.
But doing the replacement? The use of the first-person narration is very appropriate. It felt like you are witnessing the racial prejudices by yourself. Reading it is like riding on a raft where you could see the green trees, feel the cold water of Mississippi and hear the wsloshing of water as your raft passes the riverbank. This is a funny book. I laughed out loud at least three times particularly those attempts of Huck to conceal his true identity.
This is a great book. One whose message will last forever: Funny and great. But one thing is certain: For some reason, I've delayed reading this book for many years. Actually, I started it a few times but couldn't get past the language-the use of the n-word and the dialect.
This time I stuck it out and I'm so glad I did. Huck Finn is a combination boy's adventure story and biting social critique. Huck is an abused child who runs away with Jim, a slave. The outline of the story is probably known to everyone but the writing is vivid and the anxiety about Jim's getting to freedom intense.
And Huck i For some reason, I've delayed reading this book for many years. And Huck is struggling hard with his ideas of what it means to be good, which would be turning a runaway slave in, and his own conscience, that tells him Jim is a good human being and a loyal friend that he needs to help. Once I got the rhythm of the book, I was able to enjoy the writing.
Twain creates scenes so real you can almost see them. There are comic interludes, as when they pick up two con artists who get themselves into deeper and deeper trouble while trying to hoodwink others. The humor is mixed with drama and all along there's commentary on how cruel people can be. Poor Huck thinks he's a hopeless case but it becomes clear he's a very decent human being who is an outcast, like Jim.
There's a good reason this book is a classic of American literature and I'm glad to have finally read it. March Reading Assignment 1 1 Apr 02, Huck Finn 4 7 Mar 29, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn 2 14 Dec 31, Original pages.
