Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

"Nothing couldn't be better" (167)

I thought this short line showed a lot about Huck.  He has been traveling on the river and through the woods.  He has had nothing but things that he found or killed in the woods or river to eat.  He travels at night so that he can't be seen and sleeps during the day hidden.  If he is hidden and sleeping during the day, it must not be very comfortable.  He doesn't have any home cooked meals or a bed to sleep in.  The Grangerford house is amazing to him.  He didn't even have a family like this with Miss Watson.  To him this was the best there was and they were very open and willing to take him in. 

He left all the nice hopsitality and family after he felt disturbed and nervous about staying.  He felt bad leaving Jim and doesn't know how to handle all of the good fortune that the family was giving them.
