3.0 out of 5 stars + 1/2 stars: Essentially the Cliffs Notes + The Novel February 26, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a classroom teacher myself with 35 years experience, this review is from the teacher's perspective. I have been teaching "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" for the past thirty years, and during that time have accumulated numerous reference materials to aid in my understanding of this most American of classic novels. Let's start with the claims on the front cover:

"The Complete Original Work" - Yes, this is the complete, unabridged addition of the novel. Unfortunately, it includes fewer than a half dozen of the original E.W. Kemble illustrations.

"Expert Commentary" - Richard P. Wasowski has a masters degree and taches literature and writing at Ashland High School in Ohio. He groups the novel's 43 chapters into twenty-one clusters. At the end of each of these clusters, he provides insightful commentary covering both plot and theme. The average length of this commentary is a single page. A couple times it is two pages, but many times it is only a half page.

"Notes and Definitions" - There are brief notes at the beginning of each chapter. These essentially are a quick summary of what to expect in the chapter before actually reading. (I'm not sure of the advantage of these summaries. In my mind, they are plot spoilers for the first-time reader.) The definitions, on the other hand, are a different story. These are very helpful. I wish the edition that I use in the classroom (see my review for ISBN 0-486-44322-1) had this feature. This novel was published more than a hundred years ago, and words that every reader would have known then, are too obscure for most of today's reader to know. Here's the list of words just from chapter 1: sugar-hogshead, victuals, snuff, middling hard, pecking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teacher in a Hurry February 27, 2008
Cliff Notes are great, especially when its the first time you are teaching a novel you are not familiar with. Its good to use as a reference and it has commentary for each set of chapters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book May 28, 2006
By J. Joss
It provides the entire text of Huckleberry Finn, eliminating the need for the actual book. Plus, it contains helpful side definitions and commentary and the end, eliminating need for Cliffsnotes or Spark Notes. Additionally, a review quiz, essay topics, and additional resources at the end strengthen understanding of the book.

Great classic books
I'm a big fan of classic American literature. Read anything by Jack London, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, Willa Cather, or Mark Twain. Other books I'd also really recommend are Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg Ohio," Booth Tarkington's "Penrod," and William Saroyan's... Read More
