Huck Finn Ending

Tom Sawyer - what a guy!

"Well that is a question, I must say; and just like women! Why, I wanted the adventure of it; and I'd a waded neck-deep in blood to - goodness alive, AUNT POLLY!"

The whole time Huck and Tom were reunited Tom was totally aware that Jim was already a free man and he never even once mentioned it until after the fact. He risked his life, Huck's life, and Jim's life, for a little adventure. Wow! He doesnt care about anyone but himself and his reputation. He'd rather lose his life or the lives of his friends to make his reputation better. His relationship with Huck is definitely not a good relationship, it basically is a relationship of manipulation. I think Tom, the duke, and the dauphin would have gotten along together real well.

Totally agree I thought that Jim's feedom would be safe in the hands of huck and problem in the hands of tom.
