After reading Adventures of Huckleberry Finn I realized that I had absolutely nothing to say about it And yet here as you see I have elected to say it anyway and at great length Reading this novel now at the age of mumble mumble is a bit like arriving at the circus after the tents have been packed the bearded lady has been depilated and the funnel cake trailers have been hitched to pick up trucks and captained like a formidable vending armada toward the auburn sunset All the fun has already been used up and I’m left behind circumnavigating the islands of elephant dung and getting drunk on Robitussin® Same story different day How exactly did I make it through eight total years of high school and undergraduate studies in English without having read any Mark Twain but a brief and forgotten excerpt from Life on the Mississippi Isn’t this illegal by now I mean isn’t there a clause in the Patriot Act an eleventh commandment a dictate from Xenu Isn’t Huckleberry Finn like Romeo and Juliet and To Kill a Mockingbird now an unavoidable teenage road bump between rainbow parties and huffing spray paint Isn’t it the role of tedious classic literature to add color and texture to the pettiness of an adolescence circumscribed by status updates muff shaving and shooting each other Or am I old fashioned Let’s face it In the greater social consciousness there are two stars of this book 1 the word 'nigger' and 2 the Sherwood Schwartz style ending in which Tom Sawyer reappears and makes even the most casual reader wonder whether he might not be retarded Huckleberry Finn for all his white trash pedigree is actually a pretty smart kid the kind of dirty faced boy you see in his younger years in a shopping cart at Wal Mart being barked at by a monstrously obese mother in wedgied sweatpants and a stalagmite of a father who sweats tobacco juice and thinks the word 'coloreds' is too PC Orbiting the cart filled with generic cigarette cartons tabloids and canned meats are a half dozen kids glazed with spittle and howling like Helen Keller over the water pump but your eyes return to the small sad boy sitting in the cart His gaze imploring suggestive of a caged intellect breaks your heart so you turn and comparison shop for chewing gum or breath mints He is condemned to a very dim horizon and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it so you might as well buy some Altoids and forget about it That boy is the spiritual descendant of Huckleberry Finn The 'nigger' controversy is there still one is terribly inconseuential It almost seems too obvious to point out that this is a firstly a 'period novel' meaning it that occurs at a very specific historical moment at a specific location and b secondly a first person narrative which is therefore saddled with the language perspective and nascent ideologies of its narrator Should we expect a mostly uneducated abused adolescent son of a racist alcoholic who is living in the South before the Civil War to have a respectful intellectually enlightened perspective toward black people Should the character of Huck Finn in other words be ahistorical anachronistic Certainly not if we expect any semblance of honesty from our national literature Far troubling to many critics is the ending of Huckleberry Finn when by a freakishly literary coincidence Huck Finn is mistaken for Tom Sawyer by Tom’s relatives who happen to be holding Jim the slave on the run in hopes of collecting a reward from his owners There are all sorts of contrivances in this scenario the likes of which haven’t been seen since the golden age of Three’s Company which ends with Tom arriving and devising a ridiculously elaborate scheme for rescuing Jim All in all the ending didn’t bother me as much as it bothered some essayists I’ve read That is it didn’t strike me as especially conspicuous in a novel which relies a great deal on narrative implausibility and coincidence Sure Tom Sawyer is something of an idiot as we discover but in a novel that includes faked deaths and absurd con jobs his idiocy seems well placed In the end I suppose the greatest thing I can say about this novel is that it left me wondering what happened to Huck Finn Would his intellect and compassion escape from his circumstances or would he become yet another bigoted abusive father suiring another brood of dirty doomed children around a fluorescently lit Wal Mart

Review updated on 16022017Ask any person anywhere in the world to give an example of a classic book of US literature and it is a safe bet this one will come out among the top three The only reason I am going to mention the plot for such famous book is the fact that I always do it; I am not breaking my own tradition in this case So an orphan boy and a runaway slave travel together in Southern US One of the most interesting parts of the book for me was gradual change in Huck's attitude towards Jim he stops regarding the latter as a slave and starts thinking about him as an eual human being There is an obvious anti racist message in the book It also happens to have very funny laugh out loud moments It also contains satirical depiction of some aspects of life in small US cities in the early nineteenth century It contains some very poetic descriptions at times It also has some sad moments It is a classic book which is also still fun to read unlike numerous classics I can think of This is a book which teaches important lessons while still remembering that reading can be fun The book is written in the first person vernacular This is really the only example I can think of where it works It took a genius of Mark Twain to pull it off successfully If an inspiring author who thinks about using first or third person vernacular stumbles upon my review my advice would be do not unless you think your writing talent is on the same level as that of Samuel Langhorne Clemens The author wrote the novel in such a way that it became controversial countless number of times resulting in its banning it from public libraries and censorship One would think people would get over these controversies by now but to nobody's surprise some people still find things in the book to be offended at just take a look at the latest example will try to explain to the easily offended hypocrites why they are wrong in the least brain taxing way possible using simple ASCII artPoint                   ^                |                |              1 mile                |                |                v                OYou  |                |                You missed the point by one mileThis gives me an excellent opportunity to talk about limited copyright terms it seems to me we are heading for unlimited extension of copyright Limited copyright term means that regardless of current political climate and resulting censorship we will always have access to a legal unaltered copy of the book as in this case public winsA lot of people do not appreciate the book because they were forced to read it in high school If this was your only reading by all means give it another try to get a fresh prospective In conclusion this novel belongs to a relatively rare category of classics consisting of books that do not feel like you do heavy manual labor while you read them My rating is 45 stars rounded up out of my deepest respect for it PS The original illustrations are excellentPPS Project Gutenberg has a copy with original illustrations

The Adventures of Huckleberry FinnO di sorprese avventure e pericoli al termine del uale ritroveranno il vecchio amico Tom Sawyer Età di lettura da 10 ann. That is just the way with some people They get down on a thing when they don’t know nothing about itWhat makes a classic A uestion I have had to ask myself repeatedly over the last few days after students in Grade 8 received the task to come to the library and check out a classic to read There was a list with the usual suggestions but students ventured out and started to explore shelves and then came to me with a wide range of books repeating the uestionIs this a classicWhy did I turn down the diary of a wimpy kid they wanted to know and accept Huckleberry Finn even though it was so much harder to understand and also they had heard it was racistAll good uestions and I was careful not to give a too categorical answer The last thing I wanted was for them to make the connotation that a classic is a boring must while a good book is what the teachers and librarians would refuseDifficultI found myself talking about the Count of Monte Cristo and Voldemort about Tom Sawyer and Oliver Twist in comparison to Harry Potter and I made a case for trying to get through parts of Huckleberry Finn even though the language is challenging mainly because it contains exactly the message that people become unfair when they don't know nothing about itI found myself talking about discovering other times other societies other ideas of justice and hierarchy and I talked about living in the mind of someone other than oneself Imagine Huckleberry on that raft on the Mississippi I said Imagine him being in a conflict between the values he was taught and the humanity he discovered together with his fellow human who happened to be a black man in distress Which concept of life would be strongerImagine a situation in which you would have to make a choice between what you are taught and what you perceiveThat's interesting a student saidAnother one repliedYeah but it really is racist tooAnd I thoughtThat makes a classic A book that can still inspire discussions in a school library some 135 years after its initial publicationSo dear Harry I hope that in the year 2133 some librarian will tell students that you are a classic hero still worthy of their attention even though your worldview may seem a bit dated and out of touch with their perception of reality And just imagine all the Voldemorts we will have had to fight to make sure there are still school libraries and reading kids by thenTo Huck and Harry
