About Huckleberry Finn, the Book!

 

 

 

     One day Huck discovers that his father, Pap Finn, has returned to town. Because Pap has a history of violence and drunkenness, Huck is worried about Pap's intentions, especially toward his invested money. When Pap confronts Huck and warns him to quit school and stop trying to better himself, Huck continues to attend school just to spite Pap. Huck's fears are soon realized when Pap kidnaps him and takes him across the Mississippi River to a small cabin on the Illinois shore. Although Huck becomes somewhat comfortable with his life free from religion and school, Pap's beatings become too severe, and Huck fakes his own murder and escapes down the Mississippi. Huck lands a few miles down at Jackson's Island, and there he stumbles across Miss Watson's slave, Jim, who has run away for fear he will be sold down the river. Huck and Jim soon learn that men are coming to search Jackson's Island, and the two fugitives escape down the river on a raft. Jim's plan is to reach the Illinois town of Cairo, and from there, he can take the Ohio River up to the Free states. The plan troubles Huck and his conscience. However, Huck continues to stay with Jim as they travel, despite his belief that he is breaking all of society and religion's tenets. Huck's struggle with the concept of slavery and Jim's freedom continues throughout the novel. The novel is a good read when you read the book the quality is very well done. The value of the story would be a leader and not a follower. The stories merit is more than twain thought it would be because everyone knows about huckleberry Finn and his crazy adventures. I think that he hit the story hard and did a time perspective and I thought that he did a good job of what words to say and when.  So in conclusion the adventures of huckleberry Finn is a very good read but there has to be an age limit because some words in the story are vulgar for some kids to handle because it is so vulgar.http://www.swotti.com/tmp/swotti/cacheYWR2ZW50DXJLCYBVZIBODWNRBGVIZXJYESBMAW5URW50ZXJ0YWLUBWVUDC1CB29RCW==/imgAdventures%20of%20Huckleberry%20Finn4.jpg
