"It was the boast of Augustus that he found Rome of brick and left it of marble. But how much nobler will be the sovereign's boast when he shall have it to say that he found law... a sealed book and left it a living letter; found it the patrimony of the rich and left it the inheritance of the poor; found it the two-edged sword of craft and oppression and left it the staff of honesty and the shield of innocence."

Huckleberry Finn Reviews
2 of 2 Readers found this review helpful
This is an American classic!
Huckleberry Finn is probably one of my favorite books of all time. It is funny, clever, engaging, and historical, all at once. Traveling down the river with Huck and Jim is an unforgettable voyage that every reader should make at least once. While it is a good follow-up read to Tom Sawyer, it can also be read first without losing too much of the story.
