Rate this:
The classic story of a boy who makes his own rules and the small Missouri town where he and his friends experience the adventures of a lifetime

Filled with schoolyard pranks, buried treasures, spooky caves, secret gangs, and grave robbers, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is entertainment of the highest order. The clever schemes of its eponymous hero--from tricking his friends into completing his chores to sneaking into his own funeral--are the stuff of legend, and the cast of characters, including Huckleberry Finn, Becky Thatcher, Aunt Polly, and the Widow Douglas, is one of the most recognizable in American literature.

A tale of friendship, fun, and intrigue that celebrates the rural life Mark Twain knew as a boy growing up on the Mississippi River, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer mixes good-natured humor with thoughtful consideration of serious issues such as race, religion, and the strictures of adult life. Amusing and insightful for readers of all ages, it is one of the most enduring novels in American literature.

Good book. It is hard to understand if you read through it really fast. Mark Twain perfects the imaginary life of a mischievous boy in the Great Western times.

A good read, as with most of Twain's stories. I would say this is the Hobbit of Huck Finn's Lord of the Rings. It is a much easier read and meant for a younger audience. I personally found Huck Finn a more enjoyable read, but I would still not pass this one up.

I hadn't read this in the longest time and decided to revisit it. A fun book written by someone who clearly knows how boys play. I enjoyed it as much this time as I have in the past.

Behind Tom’s adventures in a small town on the Mississippi - from venturing into a nighttime graveyard with his friend Huck Finn, to tricking his friends into whitewashing a fence - are the difficult lessons to be learned about adult society.

For ages 9-12. Life is fun for Tom as he cleverly persuades his friends to do his work, attends his own funeral and hunts for buried treasure. Fun; that is, until he accidentally witnesses a murder.

Superb, adventurous. Can find sensation from simple as dispute to complex as love.

"Like it? Well, I don't see why I oughtn't to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?"
