I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Cover of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Huckleberry Finn is a less likely protagonist than Tom Sawyer, and I liked the book much less as a consequence. Bleaker, more contrived (the plot, at least), and just more depressing. It’s probably the better book from a literary perspective, what with the first person vernacular and all that, but that didn’t endear it to me either (which may be a translation issue, come to think of it).
