Summary note: Book Description: Mark Twain created one of America's best-loved fictional characters in Huckleberry Finn. Recounting the exploits of the imaginative adolescent as he and the runaway slave, Jim, raft down the Mississippi River, Twain ultimately addresses far deeper themes - man's inhumanity to man and the hypocrisy of conventional values.
Genre: Adventure fiction.
Humorous fiction.
Bildungsromans.
