It's free, but that's the only advantage to this version.

I found the first five chapters of Huck Finn to be a very very very good beginning to what will turn out to an excellent book.

Well, it is really weird to read Huck Finn in convenient 5 chapter slices. By choosing this method, they have inadvertantly created the PBJ of literature, a snack sized portion of literary goodness, easily digestible and delicious. Now, of course, this is the sequel to Tom Sawyer, so I would suggest snacking on that first if just to whet the appetite.

I found the first five chapters of Huck Finn to be a very very very good beginning to what will turn out to an excellent book. A lot of writers could learn a thing or two about how to start a book by looking at this book in cross section as it is provided for free. Twain's pacing, combined with his penchant for the narrative (he humorously explains this is a narrative and not a novel with a plot) is what makes this special. Also, Twain explains at the onset that he uses multiple different native dialects, which add to the flavor.

Basically, Huck Finn (the book) hits the ground running with some information regarding Huck's home life, an outing with Tom & Huck sneaking by a sleeping Jim, then followed by the beginning of Tom's gang of robbers (including unforgettable moments like being "ransomed to death."), then followed the appearance of Huck's good-for-nothing father. Each of these subjects were treated seperately, which in some ways changes the flow of the novel, but this is part of Twain's style, which is basically a free flowing narrative, or a collection of short stories in order, without accounting for every last minute.

Overall a great start to the book, and a nice little treat for literature starved readers.

High recommended.

It's free, but that's the only advantage to this version. It's very difficult to navigate (my cursor got stuck on the table of contents) and it's in multiple parts. Skip the free one; pay a little bit and get a whole and fully navigable copy.

I had to read this for school like most people, and I read it again recently. I enjoyed it both times. It really captures the essence of being a kid and dreaming of adventure.

I enjoyed Mark Twain as a child, and I still do. Huck Finn is always enjoyable reading and great for relaxing.
