The story of Huckleberry Finn took place around the 1890's, in a poor country town along the Mississippi River. The Mississippi River played a big role in the story.
This story is by Mark Twain, my American Literature teacher's cousin, Mark Twain is famous for the novel: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. In this story Huck is the main character. Huckleberry Finn is the sequel of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. These book were written for kids who like adventures. However, I think older people can also enjoy reading Huckleberry Finn. This is because it has a hidden theme. The hidden theme has to do with a boy named Jim who is black, and had to run away from his owner, it shows how cruel the society is. The story of Huckleberry Finn can be separated into 5 sections. .
Section 1: Huck's father took him away from Widow Douglas who has taken him as a son to teach him good manners.
