“The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain; tells a story of a boy named Huckleberry “Huck” Finn. In the story, the main characters are Huck(a boy who wants to be free of rules and not be civilized), Jim(a runaway slave), Tom Sawyer(a rebellious little boy who likes to rob people of their money), Pap(Huck's father, who wants Huck's fortune and beats him), Miss Watson(Jim's slave owner) and the Widow(a lady who wants to civilize Huck). Within this book, it takes place in the pre-Civil War era. One of the major conflicts in the story, is Huck and is father Pap relationship. Which cause Huck to fake his death and go on an adventure down the Mississippi River. On his adventure down the Mississippi River, Huck stops on Jackson’s Island and meets Jim, a runaway slave trying to reach freedom. While on their journey traveling down south the river, they make a wrong turn down the river and makes them keep traveling south. Making them face many harsh events against slave owners. This cause another major conflict in the book, because of Jim's ethnicity and the racial conflicts between Whites and African Americans. With each obstacle they face, it creates a bond between them. What stand out in my mind is that, the book creates a great perspective of the conflicts that are brought in the book. And how it teaches the history it provides in it, making it a masterpiece. I recommend this book to high schools. Because it is a book that sums up the educational merit and the history it provides to the students.
