Great story of a mischievous kid roaming around the Midwest. Word of warning: although the "n" word was commonplace @ the time of this book being written, it doesn't make it easier to read/hear over & over & over (b/c it's used A LOT!).

Age recommendation: 14 & over

On a scale of 1 - 10 stars, I give it 7.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is an American classic, famous for its use of the local vernacular, which in this case is from the Midwest Mississippi river valley during the 1830's and 40's. This includes the controversial use of racial slurs, commonly heard as a part of the daily conversation of the time. This novel is also a window into a slice of American frontier living which no longer exists, and had mostly disappeared when Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was first published in 1885.

Huck and Jim's adventures are the most engaging at the beginning and end of the novel. I feel the middle loses focus somewhat as Huck Finn becomes more of a secondary player as he crosses paths in the lives of other characters.

If you find the dialogued difficult to read, then I recommend listening to a good audiobook version which will capture the exact flavor of how the speech is supposed to sound.

I know this book is a classic and I have read it before. This time I chose to listen to it on an audio book and it was really difficult to listen to. I know back when this book was written the N word was common, but it isn't a word I am comfortable reading let alone hearing over and over again. Also, once Huck met back up with Tom Sawyer, I didn't like the story as well. Listening to Tom Sawyer really got on my nerves, he was not likable.
