Book review: the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

I have read quite a lot of American literature whilst in Cameroon, this is because our great local book shop - books and things mostly sold American books. I have really enjoyed them all and also enjoyed Huckleberry Finn. Once you get used to the dialects people are speaking in it becomes an easy read with a charming story.

The book is as you would expect full of adventure and mishap as Huckleberry Finn and Jim make there way down river. I guess I should now read the adventures of Tom Sawyer to find out what antics he and his friends get up to.

You'll love loadsa other Twain stories -they're really funny and his humour is very contemporary. Bill bryson is a big fan... try and find these auto-biogs...
