Review: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain

Oh  boy! The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is one of the funniest books you’ll ever pick up – probably one of Mark Twain’s best, definitely his most loveable.

We follow Tom and his best friend, Huckleberry Finn, as they paint fences, find treasure, and turn up at their own funerals. I’d go into more detail on the plot, but it really doesn’t matter here – the most important thing about Mark Twain books is that you get a whole bunch of Mark Twain’s humour. Like when Tom tricks some kids into doing his chores:

Or when Tom decides to be good for a change:

Or when Mr. Twain finally decides to call it quits:

Yep. It’s one of the  best.


So what do you think? Have you read it? Did you like it? Would you recommend it?

  1. You pulled great quotes! I love Twain’s writing style, but personally I’m more of a Huck Finn fan. This one’s more episodic, and while I liked all of Tom’s adventures, I didn’t fall into the story as quickly and easily as with Huck Finn. But I did enjoy the humor more in this one!
