5.0 out of 5 stars Judge this book by it's cover! February 15, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This review applies specifically to the April 2010, Sterling Edition, illustrated by Robert Ingpen:
I'm beginning to feel quite frustrated with the limited publishing information given to books on Amazon. For example, most books where you may click to "look inside" will default to the most common paperback. For books like Tom Sawyer, that is fine if you need the book for high school English class, where any copy cheap enough to write notes in the margins will do. I wanted a copy of Tom Sawyer to keep and love. I saw this publication on Amazon, but it had so little info and the one review given was a single sentence about the general value of Twain's story. The truth is, one doesn't buy this particular printing unless one is already convinced of it's literary excellency! So I am about to do Amazon a huge favor by telling you what it didn't tell me. For about $15, the asking price at the time of this review, you can invest in a real treat for your self or someone you love and wish to inspire.
This printing was meant to mark the one hundredth anniversary of Twain's death (2010). The story is unabridged, provided in full original text. It is positively rich with watercolor illustrations by Robert Ingpen. I just skimmed through the book looking for one that I especially liked, but I couldn't pick just one. In design, they are exactly as I would have dreamed them to be. Barefoot Tom, balancing a piece of straw on his nose, Huck Finn with a dead cat, Tom and puppy in church, Injun Joe- terrifying....each one pulls me in to read the text. The fabulous, wrapping cover art is also printed at the end of the book, so won't be lost if the dust jacket is damaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic November 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
"The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is a true classic. I loved the abridged version as a child and decided to read it in the original form as an adult.

It is a lively, charming and light-hearted story about a rebellious young boy (his age is never stated), who thrives on playing hilarious pranks and is constantly getting in trouble for disorderly conduct of the most original kind. Under it all though he has a good and generous heart.

Huckleberry Finn is introduced as a dirt-poor, uneducated and disreputable boy whose mother has died and whose drunkard father has abandoned him. An instantly endearing character to the reader, he is nevertheless shunned by the adults of "civilized" society, who warn their children to stay away from him because "he was idle and lawless and vulgar and bad". Tom, like the rest of the respectable boys is under strict orders not to play with him.

Not surprisingly, Tom "played with him every time he got a chance."

Thus begins a deep and enduring friendship that remains the central theme for the rest of the book.

The book is part memoir and part social critique against prevailing attitudes and hypocrisies, but mostly it is a witty and charming story jumping blithely from one adventure to the next, and told in deceptively simple but deftly crafted language. Therefore it is thoroughly enjoyable, even when the subject matter is inconsequential. I loved his description of a rather one-sided contest between a poodle and a "pinch bug" in the middle of a chruch service - it is a minor event in the book, but absolutely hilarious and a joy to read and re-read. It is quintessential Mark Twain writing at the pinnacle of his wit and style.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not formated properly for the Kindle January 9, 2011
By tracy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Both this book and the Unabridged Huckleberry Finn suffer
the
same problem in that they are not formatted properly for
the
Kindle. You don't see proper paragraphs, it was set up
for a
page with a wider margin and the line breaks are hard
coded
so what you get is an entire book broken up just like
what
you see here.

Which is very annoying to read. I tried changing the
font
sizes as well as the line spacing and the page orientation
but was
unable to get the pages to view properly. I called Amazon
Kindle
Customer Service about this since it isn't just a few typos
but the
entire book that is this way & told them I wanted a refund,
which
they said they would do but I still haven't gotten that
confirmation
email from them yet. Yeah, it's only a dollar but it is more
about
the principle of the matter, doesn't anyone proof these
before
they go on sale? Apparently no one bothered to look at
these
two books on a Kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't tamper with an original classic December 11, 2011
By olc
Format:Kindle Edition
The original is a classic, complete with the use of the language of the time it was written. To "edit" it for political correctness is unforgivable.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures of Tom Sawyer January 1, 2001
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
~The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a fascinating and adventurous book about a boy named Tom Sawyer. He has a major crush on a girl called Becky Thacker. In this book, Tom goes to an island with two of his friends, attends their own funeral, and look for treasure! Tom sees Injun Joe a killer with treasure. He wants it, but his only clue where Injun Joe hid it is that it has something to do with number 2. Tom is now lost in a cave all alone with Becky. Can he find his way out of the cave and~~ the way to the treasure? I agree with Mark Twain's decisions and ideas. I believe that I would be doing the same thing if I were in his position. His decisions are able to happen; yet The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is such a good book. I would recommend this book to people who like adventurous books, and likes classics. It leaves you at so many cliffhangers that you can help but read all of it at once, for the people who like cliffhangers.~

This is a book about an extraordinary boy before the time of technological toys. Tom may have been considered hyper-active and with an elevated IQ and run-away imagination. Read more
