Anyone who has read this classic novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn? |
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an amazing adventure book
The main characters are an uncivilised young boy named Huck and a runaway slave, Jim, a middle aged man, searching for his freedom.
Huck narrates the story of their adventures travelling down the Mississippi on a raft. Tales are told about the various places they stop at on the way, this involves comedy, suspense and tragedy and lots of mischief.
I can't say that it changed me. but it was the very first English Novel I've ever read. When I was a kid, I watched the American Cartoon first(dubbed in Chinese), I was so amazed by the adventures of Huckleberry Finn, as if I were him.
Then when I read the novel, I was familiar with the story line. It's fun to read. I loved the language Mark twain used. What amused me most is the Southern American accent, of course, I found it so difficult the first time I read it, but the second time, I understood a lot better.
What have I learned from it?
1) There shouldn't be any racial discrimination. "All men are born equal". I'm wondering how things are in U.S today?
2) I've learned that men should take responsibilities. Huck's father was a drunk. He abandoned him until he found out that his son had discovered a treasure(a big fortune), he got him back and locked him up. As I was reading it, I felt a lot of sympathy with Huck. I seemed to know how hard an irresponsible father could hurt his son.
3) The true friendship, honesty.
