The Adventures of Tom Sawyer  

Wednesday, June 25, 2008

-Mark Twain-

Normally, "classic" just means "old" and usually connotates "boring", but not Tom Sawyer! The thick book can seem intimidating, but each chapter is just a separate story of its own. There's no pressure to keep reading and it's easy to jump into any part of the novel. Colloquial dialogue gives an extra window into the setting. Some bits of language may seem offensive (and therefore will not be repeated here), but is just a reflection of common views during the nineteenth century.


Another read that is sure to gain the reader respect (at least from English teachers).
