'The perfect novel' Kate Atkinson, #1 bestselling author of Big Sky

Huck is a young, naive white boy fleeing from his drunken, dangerous Pap, and Jim is a runaway slave longing to be reunited with his family. Flung together by circumstance, they journey down the Mississippi together on a log raft, each in search of his own definition of freedom. Their daring adventures along the way provide both entertainment and a satirical look at the moral values of the Deep South of the 1800s.

MEDIA REVIEWS
All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn...There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since -- Ernest Hemingway
The quintessential American novel * Guardian *
It is Huck who gives the book style. The River gives the book its form. But for the River, the book might be only a sequence of adventures with a happy ending. A river, a very big and powerful river, is the only natural force that can wholly determine the course of human peregrination.... Thus the River makes the book a great book... Mark Twain is a native, and the River God is his God -- T.S. Eliot
The invention of this language, with all its implications, gave a new dimension to our literature. It is a language capable of poetry -- Robert Penn Warren
Running all through the book is the sharpest satire on the ante-bellum estimate of the slave * San Francisco Chronicle *

“*Spoilers*”

I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of the book. The beginning was great and from when Huck stays with the Grangerfords all through the involvement of the Duke and King, I couldn’t stop reading. However, the final 1/3 with... More
