I'm pretty sure MR. Twain didn’t know about computer viruses and laptops. WT heck is happening to our classical literature? Nowhere in the advertisements or in the book does it allude to changing the words from the original text. Anyone who gets this book needs to contact Amazon and complain immediately. This needs to get taken out of circulation!
Getting into the head of the bright boy is fun, he is not depicted as an adult, his thoughts and reasoning is just as immature as one could expect from a kid of his time.
Twain also pointed out that he was careful to write just the way the different characters (of that time ) really would speak and it does help to differentiate them.
The drawn illustrations fit in with this set of tales from the past.
I was correct. While a great study of youth and “bad boys” and life in a small 1880’s river town, I found the story and plot itself to be weak. Maybe it’s because I knew of many of the episodes in the book through public discourse and when I read them firsthand they did not live up to the hype? Not sure. Anyway, I think if you are a Twain purist, then you have to read this, but don’t expect anything like his other works.
Oh, and I don’t know what all the concern is about the “N” word. It is literally only used about 4 times and merely exposes how people spoke those days.

This book contains two best works of Mark Twain.. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Thought this edition is quite expensive but it totally worth it. The pages are thick and are intact.. And they are really soft. It would really look in the book shelves and those who love legit children's adventure books.. Then it is a must.
Very easily carried in a pocket.
However, if you haven’t read the book itself, I recommend it. Great stories, full of boyhood adventure, imagination and fun. All children should read this book and the follow up Adventure of Huckleberry Finn.
It also nicely introduces subjects which it is good to discuss sensibly with young people without getting into hysterics.
As for the debate about language, to change the words would be to miss the whole point and distort history. To me the books give a clear message that slavery is wrong and the bad words are put into the mouths of people who would have known no other words to use. I haven't persuaded my children to read these yet but maybe they've read too many Rainbow Fairies and vampire romance books (actually I really enjoyed Twilight!) to enjoy the classics! Don't think these are boring dry books like some classics can be though, they are alive and exciting.
