Synopsis

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

One of the most popular books of all-time, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been both venerated and vilified since it was first published in 1885. The story of a young abused boy on the run and his friendship with a runaway slave is about loyalty, compassion, and doing what is right, and it remains one of Mark Twain's greatest achievements. Now available as part of the Canterbury Classics singles series, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a must-have addition to the libraries of all classic literature lovers.

Reviews

'Huckleberry Finn is one of the great American novels, brilliantly written by Mark
Twain. Huck had a terrible childhood and a drunken father and when he runs away,
he is truly alone in the world. The relationship between him and the escaped slave,
Jim, is just marvellous' - Shirley Hughes, Sunday Telegraph

'Finn is a brilliantly imagined mixture of wilyness and innocence' - The Guardian

'All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called
Huckleberry Finn...There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since'
- Ernest Hemingway

'For a hundred years, the argument that this novel is has been identified,
reidentified, examined, waged and advanced. What it cannot be is dismissed. It is
classic literature, which is to say it heaves, manifests and lasts.' - Toni Morrison in The Guardian
