Huck Finn, by Mark Twain, was a good novel about the adventures of a young boy trying to get away from civilization. Huck starts off very immature and has speach impediments to show his imaturity. Huck also tries to help a runnaway slave named Jim. Jim used to belong to Hucks aunt.

Huck travels along the Mississippi River with Jim. They travel the river to get Jim to freedom, and so Huck can get away from civilization. They encounter two men who go by the names of the "Duke" and the "other guy". The Duke and the other guy are bad men who just go around scamming as many people as they can. Huck matures from his meating with the two by realizing what they are doing is wrong, and life isn't only about going on adventures.

Huck also learns from Jim while on the river. Jim is actualy like a father figure to Huck.

Huck's real father is a washed up drunk and Jim tries to teach Huck the rights and wrongs of life. Jim also helps Huck realize that there is nothing wrong with black people and he considers them equal to himself.

So in conclusion Huck Finn is a good book. If you haven't read it, I suggest you do. Especialy since you were probably supposed to read it but you didn't, and thats why your here.
