A classic of its time illustrating the horrors of slavery in a more comfortable way than a modern version might do.

I like this book and if you are already interested in buying it then go ahead, you will not regret it and it is a great price. Saying that it was written a long time ago and sometimes the way the narrative is (slang) can be hard to understand. It was written for children apparently, so it makes me feel a little dim when I'm looking up words on my phone. Anyway, i would tell myself to buy it if i could go back in time and you will love the cheeky ways of Tom and Huck. My first Mark Twain book, and I enjoy his writing style very much.

It seems so strange that I had to reach the latter part of my life before reading a book I had heard about so many years ago. But then, thats the beauty of Kindle. You discover titles that you should have read to improve your education so long ago. Tom and Huckleberry had me in fits of laughter and moments of sadness. I loved the two books and just regret I had not read them earlier on in life. There are so many of life's lessons there.

Bought this on recommendation of a friend.....Really enjoyed Tom Sawyer ( gets the 4 stars) which I thought was well written and enjoyable to follow.

Not so with Huck Finn. Laboured through it, got there in the end, so your possibly aware that I didnt quite enjoy it as much.

Probably sacrilege to criticize Mark Twain, but, hey, thats just my opinion.

I adored these stories as a child, reading the old hardback my father had read as a boy, and have regretted for years not giving it house room when clearing out to move to a smaller house (along with Kidnapped and Treasure Island). Both stories are wonderful, and also quite a historical document. I definitely recommend getting this.

Engaging and witty book, a little like an American version of Just William but with less refined social niceties.
The author writes from the child's viewpoint so the reader almost becomes one of the gang, but is an outsider looking in.
A recommended light read.

Read these as a child and thoroughly enjoyed reading them again. The passages where Jim is speaking often needed re-reading to understand the language used but well worth the effort. Not sure what happened to Tom and Huck's wealth after the first book though.

Good value for money buying them together. I brought these to take on holiday as its two books in one. Great value and a great read. These books are classic and timeless. Fun to read and the characters are easy to engage with.

Its great to find that you can get most of the classics for free on the Kindle. I have been working my way through them. Lets hope the children of today will be tempted (because they are free) and will read them. :-)
