The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

by Mark Twain
List(s):"Carp 500"
Category: "Fiction - Adventure"
Year of Publication:1876
Date Read:03/02/1993
Notes:An enduring narrative of youthful escapades in a small Mississippi River town in the 1830s. The books’ nostalgic attitude and wistful recreation of pre-Civil War life are humorously spiced by its main character, Tom Sawyer, who is mischievous and irresponsible but goodhearted.

COMMENTS — Mark Twain was the pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. “Mark Twain” was a riverman’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.
My Rating: 8
