5.0 out of 5 stars An American classic that must be read by all (and never banned)
If there's any book out there that needs no introduction (or review, to be honest), it's Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Yet here I am reviewing it, anyway. I must admit (not without a fair share of embarrassment) that I just now got around to reading this American classic for the first time. I never had to read it in school, and to some degree I felt...

2.0 out of 5 stars What Kind of Influence is HF having on teenagers or adults??
I recently had to read the book HF as a class assignment. As an interacal teenager I had a very hard time understanding and reading the book because the 'N'word is used SO frequently in the book. Am I the only one who finds it offensive? Just because HF is consider an American Classic does it change the meaning of the 'N' word. To me it doesn't make sense! I'm...

4.0 out of 5 stars This book is a great classic, but not for anyone below 10., Feb. 1 1999
By A Customer
This book has its funny side and its bad side. I am only 11 years old, and I did not enjoy the Southern Accent that every character had, and its foul language, including the n-word, which gets extremely annoying for a 6th grader, who is taught in school not to use bad words, and make fun of fellow classmates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rendition., Dec 20 2000
Jack Lemon takes a rare and wonderful turn at narrating in Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. This adaptation of the Twain classic seems crisper, capturing the feel of youth. It has never sounded better. The spry Mr. Lemon breathes life into this worn classic. This is a keeper for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing journey of man and elements, Aug. 6 2000
By 
Kenneth Johnson (Travelling across USA (in FL)) - See all my reviews
I re-read this book, after originally reading it in Jr. high school. Huck and Jim go with the flow, and make the most of their encounters and circumstances along the way. The lure of a simpler, freer life, is omnipresent in this classic. Gotta read this one. How could an American not?

1.0 out of 5 stars not the best, July 11 1999
By A Customer
I like many others was told to read this book. I can say that this book bored be to death. This book can be writen in 50 pages NOT 200. Thats a waste of 150. At one point maybe it was a great book. But hell, now its a waste of time. And why read the book when the movie is out?

1.0 out of 5 stars dull and boring and inconclusive, Nov. 30 1998
By A Customer
This book seemed to continually go on. It never really came to any important lesson or moral in the entire book. The book was extremely vague, nothing really had a reason for happening it just did it was very dissappointing after hearing all the praise that had gone into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book ever written in the United States, Jan. 28 1999
By A Customer
The negative reviews you are reading are there only because they were written by kids who had to read the book for English class. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. Twain was a brilliant author who painted an amazing picture of life at that time. One of the best books I have ever read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrid, Feb. 16 1999
By A Customer
The improper English in this book detracted immensely from the story, making every sentence a chore to read. This book was required reading for my tenth grade English class, and I had to buy the Cliff Notes because I couldn't stand reading one more "aint".

5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic, Jan. 17 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Paperback)
A classic it is after all. This will make you laugh, will make you cry and experience a lot of different emotions. There has also been research done on the book that suggest readers from different age, take different lessons from this book. So yes, a must read!
