Book Review:The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
I recently finished reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. I know this is a book that 10-yr-old would normally read, but I am trying to read some classics for a couple reasons.
One, because so much of culture has been affected by them. Two, it makes me feel smart.
It was amazing. The story-telling was so vivid that I felt like I was actually there 200 years or so ago.
It was a story about risk, adventure, friendship, courage, sacrifice, and fun. I loved it.
have to say it was a little hard to get through the dialog. It wasn’t
wordy. It was just written in period. Twain wrote in the accents and
language of the day. It was fun, but slowed me down a little as I tried
to decipher what he was saying. This is not a slam on the book. It’s simply to explain my
reading of it.
This was a classic adventure worth reading!
