Plot – The book tells the story of Huck Finn (first introduced as Tom Sawyer’s sidekick in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), his friend Jim, and their journey down the Mississippi River on a raft. Both are on the run, Huck from his drunk and abusive father, and Jim as a runaway slave.
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is especially noted for its colourful description of people and places along the Mississippi River in the US. The language is very challenging because a number of dialects are used in the book.
