From the Back Cover

Two labled outcasts—a prisoner of "civilization" and a runaway slave. An elaborate ruse. A risky escape down the Mississippi River. A harrowing encounter with murderers, thieves, and schemers. A dangerous battle between right and wrong. Racism, prejudice, and shocking truths.

This fast-paced manga edition gets you in on the action of one of the most controversial novels in American history. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very faithful adaptation of the original book by Mark Twain. All of the character dialogue comes directly from the book, and there are some parts of the book that actually convey BETTER through the graphic novel medium. Naturally, even at close to 200 pages, some cuts have to be made here and there, but the heart of the story really comes through. This is a terrific example of a "high interest/low ability" book for students.

While the description of the book suggests that they don't shy away from the controversial language of the original novel, but that's not quite true in two respects: first, they don't drop the "N"-bomb at all, which is fine because you still know what's up, and second, they take out Twain's vernacular spelling in favor of more conventional spelling (e.g. "Yo' ole father doan' know yit what he's a-gwyne to do" becomes "Your old father don't know yet what he's a-going to do"), in the interest of making the text more accessible to younger or struggling readers. More advanced readers could locate the same passage in the original text and do a compare-and-contrast exercise.

It's amazing to see how little progress mankind has made since the days of Mark Twain. It's been more than one hundred years since Huck Finn was first published, since that time there's been very little improvement in man's character.
We still see the same things: theft, dishonesty, riots, war, slavery, child abuse, superstition, hypocrisy, murder, and fear! Though pessimistic, Twain does see some good in man's character, just not much.
Since the writing of this book, we've seen the abolishment of slavery (which I think was the reason for Twain writing this story), though we are still fighting the stigma of the prejudices caused by it!
We've got all same character flaws, and the best we can say for ourselves is that we still have some of the same redeeming characteristics that Huck had: Loyalty, friendship, sincerity, and love. These may not be much, but they are enough for hope for the future.
These are the things that can help us to grow and progress, as Huck did. With them, we can open our eyes, and our hearts to our own weaknesses, and in so doing help us down our own rivers.
And who knows, perhaps in another hundred years we can look back and be proud.
This is the possibility that is Huck Finn!
