Description

Most people easily picture Twain s long white handlebar moustache and can practically hear his riverman s drawl Readers know he s Samuel Langhorne Clemens, and he s Mark Twain, and they ve painted fences right alongside Tom Sawyer Any number of young men have had crushes on Becky Thatcher, and any number of young women have laughed at Huck Finn s way of threading a needle But none of Twain s eleven novels, nine travel books, and countless short stories and essays would have achieved their status had he not first paid attention himself to everyone and everything that lived in his world from Amy Sterling Casil s Introduction

So, my daughter just started reading Tom Sawyer for the very first time, and I am jealous of her First of all, she can read it in original, while I read it in translation as a child Second, I wish I could still have that immediate, surprised response to the silly situations About every five minutes,...

Update All we need now is a lost manuscript by Twain to be found by some lawyer with the story being about an adult Tom Sawyer and this book being the one the editor forced Twain to write I know you are probably thinking that is taking Harper Lee s Go Set a Watchman to far, but what if that was just...

Despite knowing this story front and back, it was nice to finally read the unabridged words of one of America s finest storytellers The scene with Tom lost in the cave is notably incredible, but Twain s folksy prose is a delight throughout I m not as familiar with the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ...

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Fiction, Classics By Mark Twain

Although my book is intended mainly for the entertainment of boys and girls, I hope it will not be shunned by men and women on that account, for part of my plan has been to try to pleasantly remind adults of what they once were themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked, and what queer ...
