Summary

First published in 1884, Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is among the first novels in American literature to be written throughout in vernacular English. Some have called it the first Great American Novel, and the book has become required reading in many schools throughout the United States. 

The story is set along the Mississippi River in Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky and Arkansas around 1840. It depicts the development of Huckleberry (Huck) Finn, a boy about thirteen years old. Huck has to find a way between his belief in the right thing to do and what most do believe to be wrong.

BLOODY HILARIOUS NOT JUST FOR BOYS

This book made me really laugh out loud until I was crying!When I was a kid this was a boys book and I never discovered how brilliant Mark Twain was on so many levels. Political commentator, Socialist, comic. He is all of those things. The narrator was also brilliant.

Classic for good reason!

Fun filled tale for all ages this story doesn't miss a beat when it comes to adventure! The narrator is especially skilled in tackling the vibrant vocabulary and dialect of this story.

A Wonderful Classic

Howard's reading brings life to Twain's classic. Originally banned for being written in the vernacular, "Huck Finn" is again under criticism for ... being written in the vernacular. yet it is a must read about a boy's, an American author's, and America's awakening.
