I thought I would hate reading this book! Just the title kind of turns me off, and I still wonder why "Huckleberry Finn" is someone's name.....
But surprisingly, this book was good! I think it had a lot of suspense, and I like that. A lot of the events were unexpected... I could not beleive that Huck was smart enough to fake his own death and get away with it... I liked reading "Huckleberry Finn" a lot more than "The Scarlett Letter." (At first, then I watched the movie of the Scarlett Letter, and I think they kind of ruined the story)
I like how the action in the story keeps moving along, and in class we discussed the point of the river. It is true, the river actually did keep the story "flowing." I wonder what the story would have been like if it took place on say a train?
After reading this story, I may go back and read the first novel, Tom Sawyer. Maybe I would understand more about the characters and their reasoning if I had more background knowledge.
