I really enjoyed reading this book and believe it is one that ...

Though this book has been seen as controversial, with many schools trying to ban it from libraries, it is one of my favorites. yes, some questionable language is used throughout the novel, but it is all done with a purpose. the author, mark twain, wrote "the adventures of huckleberry finn" as a satire on many things including the naivety of society, superstition, religion, and most importantly, slavery. "the adventures of huckleberry finn" was published in 1884 after the 13th amendment, which formally abolished slavery, was passed. unfortunately, prejudice and racism was still rampant in society during this time. mark twain successfully points out the flaws and cruelty of slavery and discrimination through the point of view of the protagonist, huckleberry "huck" finn. huck may not have been considered as "sivilized" as miss watson or the widow douglas, but his moral compass was much greater. he was able to overcome the pressures of society and befriend a runaway slave, jim. i admire twain's use of huck to present the idea of choosing what's right despite the negative influences of those around us. i really enjoyed reading this book and believe it is one that everyone should read at some point in their life.

Different perspectives

I was a teenager when i first read the adventures of huckleberry finn. i those days it was simply an adventure story...today (many, many years later) i can see twain's dark humor.
