Huckleberry Finn, rebel against school and church, casual inheritor of gold treasure, rafter of the Mississippi, and savior of Jim the runaway slave, is the archetypal American maverick.

Fleeing the respectable society that wants to 'sivilize' him, Huck Finn shoves off with Jim on a rhapsodic raft journey down the Mississippi River. The two bind themselves to one another, becoming intimate friends and agreeing 'there warn't no home like a raft, after all. Other places do seem so cramped up and smothery, but a raft don't. You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.'

As Huck learns about love, responsibility, and morality, the trip becomes a metaphoric voyage through his own soul, culminating in the glorious moment when he decides to 'go to hell' rather than return Jim to slavery.

Mark Twain defined classic as 'a book which people praise and don't read'; The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a happy exception to his own rule. Twain's mastery of dialect, coupled with his famous wit, has made Huckleberry Finn one of the most loved and distinctly American classics ever written.

I'm in my 50s and am just now reading / listening to 'the classics'. Though not one of my favorites after 15ish books, it still tells a sad, yet sometimes wonderful story of how love and devotion can oftentimes overcome the worst of times. I do wish kids of today had an ability to imagine the way Huck and Tom did! But then, Huck and Tom were not addicted to their devices. The used their imaginations and brains. As for the narration - OUTSTANDING! Phil Grey

The story is obviously very dated in some ways but Huck's character is still believable and engaging. I thought the narration was very good
