Mark Twain writes about real life and the sense of wanting adventure. I read this in grade school, and it has stuck with me since then. The characters are all relateable and I think we can reason with them. Just another great classic.
What a cast of interesting characters! And such an imaginative adventure. As a mom of boys, I can say with fervor that Mr. Twain nailed the psyche of the tween boy on the head. There's humor, drama, rebellion, misbehavior, consequences, uncertain relationships, crushes, family stuff, and it all reads like a fast-paced rolicking ride to the finish.
Awsome! Probably some children don't understand this book because it has too many hard words, but if you have time to check what the words mean you will be transported to Tom's world, you will find that the book is very interesting. Of course I'm talking about the original version.
Tom is a mischevous ten year old boy who views the world in a romantisized manner. You will find yourself laughing at his "adventures" such as getting Ben Rogers to whitewash the fence for him or letting a pinch bug lose in church and causing such a commotion. But most importantly through his adventures you'll discover the flaws i Twain's society such as the educational system and organized religion. This novel is and deserves to be a classic because it incorporates good themes and brings to mind injustices all through the eyes of a child. I would definitly recommend this book for all those who enjoy a good laugh!
