    "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is the first of Mark Twain's novels to feature one of the best-loved characters in American fiction, with a critical introduction by John Seelye in "Penguin Classics". From the famous episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the trial of Injun Joe, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns in which Twain spent his own youth. A sombre undercurrent flows through the high humour and unabashed nostalgia of the novel, however, for ... Show more

Humor, Mischief, and Adventure

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on Jul 27, 2013

Written in 1876, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a classic story about a mischievous boy in mid-nineteenth century Missouri. According to author Mark Twain, these adventures are based on his personal experiences. Tom Sawyer and his friends get into all sorts of mischief; the boys even attend their own funeral! Twain capably develops some of the most famous characters in American literature; these include Aunt Polly, Becky Thatcher, and Tom Sawyer's friend Huckleberry Finn. I found myself laughing out loud during several parts of the book. With humor and/or adventure on every page, strong character development, realistic dialogue, and a fast-moving plot, this is classic American literature at its best. Now, I look forward to reading Adventures of Huckleberry Finn!

Great

by Selina on Oct 11, 2007

"The Adentures of Tom Sawyer" is more child frindly than the Huckleberry Fin book. Considerably shorter Tom Sawyer is full of more charm. Tom is an old fashioned bad boy. His antics are amusing and high spirited. Some of the jokes are outdated. but still possesses a charm. Some younger readers might not appreciate the old time humor. This is a great read.
