Es divertido, gracioso, estupido y profundo, todo a la vez.

Huck es ingenuo e ingenioso. Es capaz de creer que se puede disfrazar de chica para conseguir informacion y conseguirlo!

El dialogo introspectivo donde decide seguir los designios de su corazon a costa de condenarse al infierno eterno es de lo mejor que he leido en mucho tiempo. ( )

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a fantastic and an eye opening read . It takes place in time where racism is was alive and well, the book takes readers on a journey with two surprising characters who are both trying to overcoming their own challenges .I would connect the book with my class when talk about history of discrimination and how in the end we all lend on each other.

I can understand why this is such a classic. I found the end irritating, but overall, it was an enjoyable story. It really captures a people and a place in a memorable way. ( )

Maybe closer to 2.5, but not enough to round it up to 3. ( )

Mark Twain may be called the Edison of our literature. There is no limit to his inventive genius, and the best proof of its range and originality is found in this book, in which the reader's interest is so strongly enlisted in the fortunes of two boys and a runaway negro that he follows their adventures with keen curiosity, although his common sense tells him that the incidents are as absurd and fantastic in many ways as the "Arabian Nights."

Book description
This is the story of a boy and an escaped slave as they travel down the Mississippi River. it's a story of friendship and family and home.
Audible is pleased to announce the premiere of an exciting new series, Audible Signature Classics, featuring literature’s greatest stories, performed by accomplished stars handpicked for their ability to interpret each work in a new and refreshing way. The first book in the series is Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, performed by Elijah Wood.

Ernest Hemingway said, “All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn". One hundred years after its author’s death, this classic remains remarkably modern and poignantly relevant. In this brand new edition, Elijah Wood reads Huck in a youthful voice that may be the closest interpretation to Twain’s original intent. His performance captures the excitement and confusion of adolescence and adventure. Best of all, the immediacy of Wood’s energetic reading sweeps listeners up and makes them feel as though they’re along for the ride, as Huck and Jim push their raft toward freedom.
