Inhaltsangabe: Huckleberry Finn is a 12 year old boy who is not enjoying his childhood very much. His father is the town drunk, so Mrs. Douglas, a widow, takes Huck in to make a proper gentleman out of him. Huck wants none of it - going to school, going to church, getting dressed up and he doesn't like his tutor Miss Watson. Huck decides to run away, but he is found by Tom Sawyer who convinces Huck to return home. Huck and Tom had found some hidden treasure a while back and when Huck's father hears of it, he comes back after Huck's money. Huck is able to elude his father until his father catches him and drags him off to be locked in a cabin in the woods three miles down river. Huck's father beats him for months, until he is able to escape - leaving a trail of pig's blood so his father thinks he is dead. This is just the start of "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". You'll enjoy following him through all the pickles he finds himself in and how he always manages to escape.
Rezension: A seminal work of American Literature that still commands deep praise and still elicits controversy, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is essential to the understanding of the American soul. The recent discovery of the first half of Twain's manuscript, long thought lost, made front-page news. And this unprecedented edition, which contains for the first time omitted episodes and other variations present in the first half of the handwritten manuscript, as well as facsimile reproductions of thirty manuscript pages, is indispensable to a full understanding of the novel. The changes, deletions, and additions made in the first half of the manuscript indicate that Mark Twain frequently checked his impulse to write an even darker, more confrontational book than the one he finally published.
