The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Review
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Year 7 Literary Canon - Book 1
On the surface, this book is a straight forward story about a boy and a runaway slave. This book, first published in 1884, explores slavery and racism. Huck, the main character, joins a gang and escapes from the clutches of his abusive father. He meets a friend, Jim, and together they have all sorts of adventures. This is a fun book with lots of new words to explore. My favourite part of the book is when Huck and Jim meet the Duke and the King. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an adventure story.
