Finished Reading: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain


Adventures of Huckleberry FinnAdventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

There are too many reasons to list as to why I didn’t like this ‘classic.’ I’ll happily be in the minority and don’t feel any need to go with the flow and rate it highly simply because it is a ‘classic.’ To say I didn’t like it – well, that’s a classic understatement. I hated it. In my view, it is simply rubbish.

I have no time for the racism throughout, but that is not my only criticism. Back in the day it may have been considered great writing, but I don’t see how it could possibly be considered that. Again, I am not back there. Still, I must consider it from my own perspective in this day and age. If it was meant to be funny (and I’ll admit to having a chuckle once or twice), I don’t think it really achieved it. If it was meant to be stupid – well, that it did achieve.
