Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Mark Twain & E.W. Kemble Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
One of the greatest — and one of the most controversial — novels in American history, complete with the illustrations from the original 1884 printing! What begins as a sequel to Mark Twain's incredibly popular The Adventures of Tom Sawyer grows into an ambitious, sprawling, funny, and uniquely American epic. Huck Finn is a mischievous boy, caught between a confining life with his legal guardian and an abusive life under his drunkard father. So naturally, he fakes his own death, teams up with a runaway slave named Jim, and takes off on a raft down the Mississippi River. The duo's ensuing adventures offer a chance for Twain to satirize the bygone world of the antebellum South, most notably taking a sometimes scathing, sometimes troubling, look at racism. The book remains one of the most essential, and one of the most entertaining, works in American literature.

User reviews about this book
The story is well developed and ties in Tom Sawyer quite seamlessly. This book is very sweet and really shows and demonstrates slavery and the development of becoming a free man in a time of racial inequality with the help of a boy with a troubled home and an adventure ahead of him. Definitely recommend and this is a great classic everyone must read.

THIS IS TOO LONG
This is a neat-o book. It's a dandy DOO DAH day of a literature and I'd recommend it to your local taxidermist and or goldfish.
Or perhaps a husky dog. 0-0
Book is great, but...
I like the fact that the original illustrations are included, but the formatting of this version on iBooks isn't the best. This is the only version I've found where the illustrations seem to be re-mastered a bit, but other things are weirdly shown. For example, the dropped capitals at the beginning of chapters sometimes appear on the wrong page, leaving the first word of a chapter to not have a first letter. Other than some really weird formatting, I like this version, and wish there were some way that could be fixed.
It's the best in history
It's the best book series in history
The adventures of Huck Finn
Just finished reading this literary classic. I was surprised to see how even after almost 150 years Mark Twain's humor still rings a bell. I must confess that is is uncomfortable at times because of the way the slaves were depicted and treated, as well as the constant use of the dreaded n-word. I would love to share this book with my kids but feel that their little heads might get too confused with reality and the writings of that time. Truly enjoyed it although it was very repetitive in some sections but wonderful writing all around.
