"The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain
“We said there was no home like a raft. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery…but you feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.” Sail down the Mississippi with Huck Finn and the runaway slave, Jim. Twain’s beloved tale, with its folksy language, creates an indelible image of antebellum America with its sleepy river towns, con men, family feuds, and a variety of colorful characters.

MY THOUGHTS: There isn't too much to say about this book. It's a great adventure to re-live from my childhood. But at the time I read this, I didn't know it was a banned book. I don't really understand why they ban books. Just because someone doesn't like the language???? It's the way they talked in that time period. Anyway, if you haven't read this book, give it a try. You'll love Huck's adventure down the river. He gets into some really big messes.
MY RATING: 5
