Synopsis
Accustomed to doing as he liked before the Widow Douglas adopted him, Huckleberry Finn is tired of being told how to behave. But when he is kidnapped by his drunken father, who is a constant threat to his safety and fortune, Huck's situation takes a turn for the worse, and he decides to run away. After feigning his own death to cover his tracks, Huck starts down the river. He is joined by Jim, a runaway slave. As the two travel, their friendship grows. However, Huck must decide how loyal a friend he is when Jim is captured again. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an engaging story, but even more striking is Mark Twain's honest and insightful look at the culture of his day, making this book a true classic.
Amazon.com Review
A seminal work of American Literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is essential to the understanding of the American soul. The recent discovery of the first half of Twain's manuscript, long thought lost, made front-page news. And this unprecedented edition, which contains for the first time omitted episodes and other variations present in the first half of the handwritten manuscript, as well as facsimile reproductions of thirty manuscript pages, is indispensable to a full understanding of the novel. The changes, deletions, and additions made in the first half of the manuscript indicate that Mark Twain frequently checked his impulse to write an even darker, more confrontational book than the one he finally published.
