"This is an exact verbatim reprint of the first edition of Samuel L. Clemens's book and it incorporates all typographical error as well as other peculiarities of the genuine, rare first edition."

Shamefaced about my lack of exposure to the American classics. Had to read this for book club or I probably never would have. So glad I did; hilarious, touching, and in my opinion an ingenious way of presenting the moral dilemmas of the day with regard to slavery. I kind of missed Huck when Tom Sawyer showed up, but I did laugh out loud at Tom. Wonderful. ( )

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

 

He has no mother, his father is a brutal drunkard, and he sleeps in a barrel. He’s Huck Finn—liar, sometime thief, and rebel against respectability. But when Huck meets a runaway slave named Jim, his life changes forever. On their exciting flight down the Mississippi aboard a raft, the boy nobody wanted matures into a young man of courage and conviction. As Ernest Hemingway said of this glorious novel: “All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn.

@declineofwesternsiv Seems like soon as a fella comes into a bit o’ money, everyone comes out of the woodworks after’n it.
