The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (The Adventures of Tom and Huck #1)
Author: Mark Twain
Goodreads Rating: 3.91
Publisher: Penguin Books
From the episodes of the whitewashed fence and the ordeal in the cave to the trial of Injun Joe, this novel is redolent of life in the Mississippi River towns in which the author spent his own youth. Beneath the innocence of childhood lie the inequities of adult reality - base emotions and superstitions, murder and revenge, starvation and slavery.
