Is He Really That Bad?

"The critical dislike of, or at least discomfort with, the ending is largely caused by the re-entrance of Tom onto the stage and the havoc that ensues" (Scott 188)

I have never read Tom Sawyer but I don't understand everyone's hatred towards him.  I don't know if I completely took him and the book wrong or what but he isn't the worst of characters.  As discussed in class, some that have read Tom Sawyer say that he is a lot nicer and likable in Huckleberry Finn.  So I guess my point is that I am confused on why people are so affected by Tom coming back at the end.  It almost seems that it ruined the book for them. 

I put this as discussion because it sparked a discussion in class dealing with Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.
