Summary of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Summary of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Reviews for The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn An Excerpt from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Of all the contenders for the title of The Great American Novel, none has a better claim than The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Intended at first as a simple story of a boy's adventures in the Mississippi Valleya sequel to Tom Sawyerthe book grew and matured under Twain's hand into a work of immeasurable richness and complexity. More than a century after its publication, the critical debate over the symbolic significance of Huck's and Jim's voyage is still fresh, and it remains a major work that can be enjoyed at many levels: as an incomparable adventure story and as a classic of American humor.
