More About Mark Twain & Gary Paulsen

Mark Twain Mark Twain was born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida, Missouri, in 1835, and died at Redding, Connecticut in 1910. In his person and in his pursuits he was a man of extraordinary contrasts. Although he left school at twelve when his father died, he was eventually awarded honorary degrees from Yale University, the University of Missouri, and Oxford University. His career encompassed such varied occupations as printer, Mississippi riverboat pilot, journalist, travel writer, and publisher. He made fortunes from his writing but toward the end of his life he had to resort to lecture tours to pay his debts. He was hot-tempered, profane, and sentimental--and also pessimistic, cynical, and tortured by self-doubt. His nostalgia helped produce some of his best books. He lives in American letters as a great artist, the writer whom William Dean Howells called "the Lincoln of our literature."

Tom Quirk is the Catherine Paine Middlebush Professor of English at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He is the editor of the Penguin Classics editions of Mark Twain's Tales, Speeches, Essays, and Sketches (1994) and Ambrose Bierce's Tales of Soldiers and Civilians and Other Stories (2000) and co-editor of The Portable American Realism Reader (1997). His other books include Coming to Grips with Huckleberry Finn (1993), Mark Twain: A Study of the Short Fiction (1997) and Nothing Abstract: Investigations in the American Literary Imagination (2001).

Mark Twain lived in Hannibal, in the state of Missouri. Mark Twain was born in 1835 and died in 1910.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Aladdin Classics)?

One of my favorites! Why do people hate it?  May 20, 2008
First off, I love this book and I was very mad to hear stuff like "All people who like it are stupid" I read one review where the person said "It shows how stupid Anericans can be" You misspelled Americans buddy! People did talk like that. I know because they still talk like that. I loved the language, and snobs who just turn their noses up and say "that's not proper English!" are obnoxious and pitiful! How is it hard to read? The bad reviewers called lovers of this book stupid when they couldn't even understand the book. Twain uses the N word so much because that's how people talked back then! Americans who insult this book are uncultured, know nothing about history and are complete snobs. I find Jim to be a kind, patient, fatherly figure, Huck to be an interesting main character and Tom to be lovable and funny. People say it's childish and that Jim is childish, but that's because the book is written through the eyes of Huck, a 13 year-old boy. You would have to be racist to call this book racist. MARK TWAIN WAS VERY ANTI SLAVERY! I'm really mad that people can be so ignorant as to want to ban this book. People say that Huck's adventure were boring, but they were not. He is a 13 year-old helping to free a slave and then there's all the stuff in between. How many 13 year-olds do you know who have ever travelled down the mississippi river constantly being hunted for, without any parents? I love this book, the characterization is flawless and all Americans should read this and enjoy it. Mark Twain was a brilliant writer and all you people who hate on this book and are mean to people who like it, I feel kind of sorry for you that you are such stupid snobs who can't even understand a dialect which is still used today. This book takes place at America's most shameful time in history and yet I am still proud that this is a book that represents america.
Not my cup of tea  Apr 12, 2008
I was disappointed after reading this story. Of course the message is important and Mark Twain is a talented writer, no one can deny that. However I found it difficult to read this book with the dialoge and the plot wasn't really holding my attention.
disappointed  Apr 10, 2008
Maybe I shouldn't have read Tom Sawyer before Huck, as it might have been to much Twain all at once. Words don't bother me in a story, it's the boring repetion the boy had, we all have dreams and children maybe more, but to act them all out over and over, I couldn't wait to finish the book. I think some books fit their period more so, maybe Huck being one of them, and it just may be the books controversy and popularity is because of a few certain words, and that is a same.
My favorite book  Feb 20, 2008
It's hard to write a review of your favorite book. It's hard to describe in words the wonderful hours I spent reading and rereading it. No other book has captured the joy of being a kid so well, and the adventures that the world has to offer. Through excitement and peril to lazy days spent on Huck's raft, this book absorbs you from start to finish.

The plot is superb and extremely well-written. Twain writes with a remarkable feel for dialog and description. This knowingness probably stems from the fact that the story is partly inspired by Twain's own boyhood. He himself lived along the Great River, and he knew all of its sights and sounds.

The characters are extremely well-crafted. I could always relate to Huck, who seems to represent boyhood personified. His wish for greater adventures, for fun - for the easy life - was something that enthralled me when I was young. I, too, wished to have a raft, to be floating down the Mississippi River with Huck.

However, this remarkable book is not so much an adventure story as it is a critique of the society of that time. Many not-so-childish issues are addressed, such as the evil of slavery.

The story is filled with adventure: Huck runs away from his abusive father, finds a canoe and sails to an island, where he finds a runaway slave named Jim. Together, they sail through the Mississippi River while danger hounds our protagonists every step of the way. There are twists and turns, but be assured that all will be fine in the end.

What I believe makes this book great is how Twain is able to make the reader feel as though he is with Huck. The story, told from Huck's perspective, complete with bad grammar, etc. is so convincing that you almost forget that Huck himself didn't write the book. A remarkable achievement in American literature.

The Dover Thrift Edition is cheap and unabridged, and I highly recommend it. There are, however, no pictures, but in a book as good as "Huck Finn", it seems as though one sentence is worth a thousand pictures!
A great American classic  Feb 8, 2008
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of those novels that could easily go either way in the minds of a reader. Some people find it either boring or offensive, particularly because of its excessive use of the "n word." Others balk at the unbelievability of the plot premises (such as carrying an escaped slave south rather than north). Still others find the excessively colloquial linguistic style distracting and difficult to read. Any or all of the above could cause a person to dislike this story.

I myself certainly noticed the shortcomings above (although I personally enjoyed the colloquial language and realized that the use of the "n word" was historically accurate and would have been used much as we today say "black" or "African-American"). However, I was able to largely overlook the problems of the novel and appreciate it on a more simple level: an adventure-filled journey down the river.

In addition, I appreciated the central device of Huck's character: he acts consistently against his conscience, which is representative of the deplorable attitudes that were prevalent at the time. Through his actions, we see that he is not truly racist, but that society has imposed racism upon him. We see that he is impressionable, and will allow bad things to happen for a while, but ultimately he will step in and try to stop them. In this way, he is representative of the "innocent" child, whose worse qualities are always a result of others around him rather than anything innate.

Overall, this book is worth reading as a parable on freedom and conscience, and deserves a place among the great American classics.
