The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

“You don’t know about me, but that ain’t no matter.” This is the classic story of a poor white boy in America’s Deep South. To escape his brutal father, Huckleberry Finn runs away with a slave boy, and their journey down the Mississippi is one of courage, hope and danger. They encounter trouble at every turn, from floods and gunfights to armed bandits and the long arm of the law. Through it all, the friends stick together – but can Huck help to free Jim from slavery once and for all? One of the true classics of American fiction, Mark Twain’s gripping adventure story is now paired with an inspirational new introduction by Darren Shan.

    It was OK, not the best in my opinion and found it too hard to read. That made me not get the story, like some of it was just a jumble of words.

    This is an exciting story of a boy who fakes his own death, and goes on to have an incredible journey. It’s a fun book that’s really hard to put down once you get into it!
