    One Reply to “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”

    1. After reading Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, I realized that I had absolutely nothing to say about it. And yet here, as you see, I have elected to say it anyway, and at great length. Reading this novel now, at the age of mumble-mumble, is a bit like arriving at the circus after the tents have been packed, the bearded lady has been depilated, and the funnel cake trailers have been hitched to pick-up trucks and captained, like a formidable vending armada, toward the auburn sunset. All the fun has [...]

    2. This is a rant. I found Huckleberry Finn on my bookshelf had been changed to Huckleberry Finn Robotic Edition. Some very pc "authors" and "editors" took it upon themselves to change the N word to 'robot'. They then rewrote the book to take away any mention of humans and to 'roboticise' words such as 'eye' which becomes something like 'optical device'. The illustrations have also been changed. I have no problem with this, but I do have two major issues with this edition.The first problem is with [...]

    3. Hemingway said American fiction begins and ends with Huck Finn, and he's right. Twain's most famous novel is a tour de force. He delves into issues such as racism, friendship, war, religion, and freedom with an uncanny combination of lightheartedness and gravitas. There are several moments in the book that are hilarious, but when I finished the book, I knew I had read something profound. This is a book that everyone should read.

    4. "I about made up my mind to pray; and see if I couldn't try to quit being the kind of boy I was, and be better. So I kneeled down. But the words wouldn't come. Why wouldn't they? It warn't no use to try and hide it from Him. Nor from me, neither. I knowed very well why they wouldn't come. It was because my heart wasn't right; it was because I warn't square; it was because I was playing double. I was letting on to give up sin, but away inside of me I was holding on to the biggest one of all. I wa [...]

    5. Review updated on 16.02.2017.Ask any person anywhere in the world to give an example of a classic book of US literature and it is a safe bet this one will come out among the top three. The only reason I am going to mention the plot for such famous book is the fact that I always do it; I am not breaking my own tradition in this case. So an orphan boy and a runaway slave travel together in Southern US. One of the most interesting parts of the book for me was gradual change in Huck's attitude towar [...]

    6. "وأيقنت ألا جدوى من إضاعة الوقت هباء, فأنت لا تستطيع أن تعلم زنجياً كيف يجادل. وعندئذ كففت عن الحديث" هاكلبري فين, بعد أن رفض الزنجي أن الاختلاف بين الأمريكي والفرنسي مثل الاختلاف بين القطة والبقرة إذا لم تستطع هذه الرواية أن توصل لك قيمة العلم والمنطق, وخطر العلم الزائف فما ال [...]

    7. THE Greatest American Novel? Well No wonder the Spanish think themselves superior with their Quixote, undoubtedly a blueprint for this mischievous Every Boy! Huck Finn is the full embodiment of THE American Fantasy: mainly that dire misconception that the protagonist of the world is you and that everything gravitates around that essential nucleus. Everyone in town thinks Huck dead, and what does he do but follow the tradition of a plot folding unto itself (as Don Q finds his story become medieva [...]

    8. Why have I never read Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn before? Was it Twain’s copious use of the N word? (I vaguely recall a primary school teacher abruptly halting a class read-aloud session, perhaps because of that.) Was it the air of earnest solemnity that surrounds so-called classics? Sheer laziness?No matter. I’ve read it now, and I’ll never be the same again. Hemingway was right when he said (and I’m paraphrasing) all American literature comes from Huck Finn. While it’d be entertai [...]

    9. I had to read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in middle school, and I fervently wish that they had made us read Huck Finn instead. I mean, I understand why they didn't (giving middle schoolers an excuse to throw around racial slurs in a classroom setting is just asking for a lawsuit from somebody's parents), but Huck Finn is better. It's smarter, it's funnier, and Huck's adventures stay with you a lot longer than Tom's, because Huck's experiences were richer and more interesting, whereas The Advent [...]

    10. 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.___________________________________(Expanded review based on conversation with JORDAN)Here in Switzerland, l'affaire du mot N hasn't quite had the high profile it's received on its home territory. 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 [...]

    13. 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.

    14. 3.5"There warn't no home like a raft, after all."I mean, at the beginning there's a notice that reads "Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot." How am I supposed not to fall in love, pray tell?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 [...]

    15. Pretty good, kinda silly - but I think that is what Twain was going for - 3.5 stars.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 [...]

    16. Review4 out of 5 stars to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, one of the "Great American Novels" by Mark Twain published in 1884. I've actually read this book twice: once as a 14-year-old and again in college as part of my many American English courses. 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 b [...]

    17. 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 [...]

    18. Having never so much as fingertipped a Twain until this moment, in the last rattle of my twenties, this caustic racial satire packaged as a rootin’-tootin’ Boys Own romp proved a pleasant surprise, rather like some other late-in-the-game experiences in my life, such as listening to Tom Waits for the first time, discovering the movies of Werner Herzog, and having a proper relationship with a woman who turned out not to be an asexual narcissist. [I include the last bit to shock regular viewers [...]

    19. لم أكن أعلم أن هذا الكتاب هو تكملة لكتاب"مغامرات توم سوير" حيث يتم التركيز على هيكلبري فين صديق البطل في الكتاب السابق بشكل عام كتاب جيد و ممتع يقدم مغامرات طفولية مضحكة أحياناً، و ساذجة أحياناً أخرى لكنها لا تخلو من خفة ظل مارك توين المعروفة و سخريته اللاذعة

    20. 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!

    21. 2016 RE-READI read this when I was like ten or something and all I remembered was that it was one of my favorites. Here I am, 26 years later, having read it again, and loving it perhaps more than I did then. I don’t remember Mark Twain being so damn hilarious. 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 aga [...]

    22. 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. :)

    23. Huck Finn is miles weightier than Tom Sawyer, and it's almost the Great American Novel it's called. Tom Sawyer was all fun and games - Don Quixote, as he points out himself, "all adventures and more adventures." Huck Finn's a different person; he's concerned with doing the right thing. 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 [...]

    24. Now, how in the nation is a body going to start this review? Well, I'll be ding-busted!I usually don’t like reading colloquial prose style, accented dialogue and dialects. 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, cha [...]

    25. I've readThe Adventures of Huckleberry Finn many times: first as a teenager, then as a young man in college and until last week, as a thirty-something adult. Each reading brought new insights about Twain's take on the American experience. 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 powerf [...]

    26. 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 [...]

    27. 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 [...]

    28. Славен момък е тоя Хъкълбери Фин, честно слово! Ако не вярвате, питайте мистър Марк Твен, той ще ви каже„Приключенията на Хъкълбери Фин“ четох в превод от 65-та година. Чудесно придава атмосферата на по-миналия век в САЩ. Не зная дали съвременен преводач, пък бил той и умел, би [...]

    29. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer opened the door to this book, my favorite of the two. I’ve never been a fan of the leader of the pack, I’ve always been drawn to the quieter buddy. Not the buddy that blindly follows but the thinking man, the one that sits back to watch and learn from the things he sees before him.I adore Huck for how he handles the life lessons that have been dealt to him and those around him. At first he is afraid to stand on his own two feet, quick to yes sir and do what isn [...]
