Review: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story is about Thomas Sawyer aka Tom Sawyer a mischievous boy and little trouble maker living with his Aunt Polly in St.Petersburg village. His adventures with his friends taking them and enacting as Robin Hood, pirates and robbers in shores of Mississippi are worth mentioning.

Like every children Huck and Tom believed (superstitious belief) that lighting will struck one who lies. Their childhood belief withers away when they watch Injun Joe lying to the people.

I liked the chapters of Tom and Becky getting lost in the cave and how the intelligence of Tom Sawyer helped him to find out the way. Another chapter is about Tom, Joe and Huck trying to run away from home and becoming pirates. The character of Tom show bravery often, he did not give up easily even if the chances are bleak the one I already mentioned is the escape from the cave with Becky.

  1. If you liked Tom's story then his friend Huck also has a book written about him and how he helps a man called Big Jim escape slavery.

    1. Yes Mark it is Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I had downloaded in Kindle will read and review shortly. I understand you have read both Tom and Huck adventures which you liked most?
