As far as the stories go, I've read both at least a couple of times when they were required reading in middle school and later. Tom Sawyer the book is fun without much meaning, except the joys of childhood. However, I didn't realize how annoying the character of Tom Sawyer was - seems to be the Bart Simpson of the time. Huck Finn was the annoying one before, but as an adult I realize how smart and moral he was, especially for his time and situation. Huck Finn the book is great too, but with much more symbolism and message, if you can get past the chapters with Tom going on and on about doing the adventure right.
