A true adventure Story. I love to read this book when I'm traveling and swinging in a hammock. It was one of the 1st books I ever read independently from a school setting and now pushing in to my 40's I still have to get a fresh copy and read it again every so often. Mark Twain captures my imagination to a degree I find a lot of other authors can not match. He was a truly original thinker, with his razor sharp wit and unbounded sense of what it takes to make a good story emulated in this classic. Set in on and around the banks of the Mississippi river circa 1845 this period novel will give you a glimpse into the life of a young boy breaking out into the world in the most exhilarating way. Touching on many subjects that the modern day person would take for granted. This is a fantastic fun read and a must for seasoned readers, people starting to get into books and people like I who must read it every few years. If you read this book and love it as I do, I am sure you will enjoy the adventures of tom sawyer set in the town Mark Twain grew up.
