Editorial Reviews

Review

All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn . . . All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since. Ernest Hemingway

As characters Tom and Huck have become American myths (a form of transubstantiation achieved by remarkably few fictional creations in the last hundred years), and that very fact indicates that whatever distinctions are made between the two novels, and however many reservations are cited about either or both, Twain possessed extraordinary imaginative power. from the Introduction by Miles Donald --Wordsworth Editions --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This edition is missing some passages from the original works. For example, there are about three pages missing (as measured from a paperback copy) from Chapter 21 of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

I read both books in high school and wanted to re-read them. I thought this would be a good deal, and convenient because both books were bound in one. However, after I received my copy, I realized that this book is too short to contain the full original text of both novels. I emailed the publisher and was told this is an abridged version of the books.

If you are looking for an unabridged version, this is not for you. I checked carefully, and did not find any indication on the book that this is an abridged version of the original novels (which is why I emailed the publisher to ask).

To be clear, I think both books are good, and are certainly worth reading at least once. I prefer unabridged versions of books, especially of American classics. As such, I returned this book to Amazon and will be purchasing the unabridged versions of these books.

I just want to point out that this hardcover Everyman's Library edition is not abridged. Most of the reviews posted here apply to the Signet mass market edition, which apparently is abridged. The Everyman's edition contains both novels in full.

A wonderful edition which includes both Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn (very handy for the Twain lover). It also has a red bookmark attached to the binding so you can easily find your place. The book is small and light so it is ideal for travelling and reading out of your home. It also includes a nice introduction and a comparative chronology of Twain's life. For a Twain collector, this is a lovely, readable copy.

It has been years since I read these two books. There was a lot that I had forgotten about them. Was really disappointed that I would be reading along and I would turn a page and would have lost 10-15 pages. Would really like to see this fixed and notified so I can delete this issue and get corrected copy....

I wish I could have submitted this complaint privately, but since you do not appear to provide that option on your customer service pages, I hope you will see it here and fix it accordingly.

As others have commented -- the text itself is a true classic, the template for the "Great American Novel" -- but this free Kindle edition is missing several pages. I honestly think it is a shame that Amazon has not corrected this, as it does a disservice to first-time readers, including the students of the world, to miss out on key passages from a literary work like this. C'mon Amazon, it's about quality control. Please actually read the reviews on your products and respond to consumer demand, as several people before me have already commented on this, and this should be an easy fix.

Otherwise, were this text in good shape (the Tom Sawyer portion at least seems intact), it is well worth downloading if they ever get it fixed. Also note that you can find this text (legally) for free already on the internet, if you need to make up for this product's shortcomings and find the parts you missed.

Amazon, remember -- the Kindle is only as good as its products, despite its great potential (and I do love it). Don't leave students and readers of the world hanging with mistakes like this on such an important American work, and one that you know millions of American 11th graders will be downloading on an annual basis.

Format: Paperback
This is a collection of two books that are often considered for children. However, they are suitable for both adults and children. The kids will love the adventure, the wonderfully irreverent and humorous view of childhood and the characters with their loyalty and friendship. The adults will also enjoy the satire of life in the "proper" lower middle-class society of the South with the sendups of hypocricy, false religiousity, racism and slavery and the like.
Tom Sawyer is probably more oriented for children than the other one. Here, the focus is Tom, who is largely a child prankster. His romantic ideals of doing things like running away to be a pirate are the source of great amusement and reflection for him - and worry for his family.
Huckleberry Finn has more adult themes. Here, the mockery of society is much harsher as Huck escapes from his abusive, drunk father to sail down the Mississippi with Tom and Jim (a runaway slave). Along the way the get to see the best and worst of what America on the river has to offer.
These books should be treasured and deserve their fame. Twain informs and relates in a totally entertaining and warm way.

Wow.....wow....I mean, really, this book is just amazing. Abso-f-in-lutely wonderful. It's role as the quintessential American novel is so well deserved you can't help but wonder if this is the best read you might ever have. I m currently going through all the classics of the world, and have such joys as Moby Dick, War and Peace, Robinson Crusoe, among many, many others awaiting me. However, I feel like I ve already found the love for the written word that I felt I may aquire after reading perhaps a dozen or so of the worlds finest.

To the novella: He tells the tale with such heart, such character, such life that I will attest that I dont think I ve ever felt so strongly for a character as I do for Huck Finn. He is so vivid and alive and real; its absurd.

Yes, it is quite racist on the surface, and during the 250 odd pages of the story you might read more racial slurs and statements than you have in your life, but in the heart there is nothing racist about this story. I ve heard it defended because thats just how it was in Twains time, and alas, that is how it was then, and the reason it is all so blatant, but there is really nothing racist about the portrayal of Jim. He is so loving and deep and pure. Surely one of the sweetest people you could ever want to meet.

The charm of this story, the unending humor and delight of all the dialects and wordage, the manner of conversation and the subjects....my loves for this story are unending. Its a must read. I know you ve heard that;I know you know that. But damn it, off your ass and DO IT!

Twains masterpiece, and for that matter, a masterpiece of all literature in the history of the world.
