    I was five and a half years old when my mother gave me The Adventures of Tom Sawyer as a New Year's gift she is a literature teacher and I have been reading novels since the tender age of four or so and so it seemed appropriateBeing a diligent and serious¹ child neither of those ualities have stuck with me unfortunately I opened it to page 1 and started reading I even took it with me to kindergarten where other kids were learning letters and I was mercifully allowed to read hefty tomes having obviously achieved full literacy by that point¹ Me age 5 and Mom The diligent seriousness is all over this picture This book initially left me uite confused but I was undeterred after all the world was a confusing place full of adults and rules and great books even those without pictures And I was very proud to own books without pictures after all But his one was just too strange its beginning did not uite fit with the rest of the uite fun story it was odd and dry and incomprehensible for the first 40 pages or so and it even was about some other guy Samuel Clemens? who was not Tom SawyerA few years later I reread my early childhood favorite I probably reached a ripe old age of eight or so still diligent but a bit less serious already It was then that I figured out what seemed strange about the beginning of this book when I was fiveYou see I diligently slogged my way through the most boring academic foreword assuming that was the first chapter What amazes me that I managed to stay awake through it Good job five year old me Excellent preparation for that painfully boring biochemistry course a couple of decades laterAfter that foreword slogging through any classic was a comparative breeze Yes I'm looking at you War and Peace You know what you did you endless tomeAlso as it turns out when you include two characters named Joe in one book Injun Joe and Tom's classmate Joe Harper that can cause a certain amount of confusion to a five year old who assumes they have to be the same person and struggles really hard to reconcile their seemingly conflicting characters And as a side note I have always been disappointed at Tom Sawyer tricking his friends to do the infamous fence whitewashing A real kid knows after all that painting stuff is fun Five year old me was a bit disapproving of the silliness I have told bits and pieces of this book to my friends on the playground while dangling from the monkey bars or building sandcastles in a sandbox that in retrospect I suspect was used by the neighborhood stray cats as a litterbox but I guess you have to develop immunity to germs somehow We may have planned an escape to an island in a true Tom Sawyer fashion but the idea fizzled After all we did not have an island nearby which was a problem Also we may have got distracted by the afternoon cartoonsSomeday I just may have to leave this book within a reach of my future hypothetical daughter as long as I make sure it does not come with a long winded boring introduction

    Update All we need now is a lost manuscript by Twain to be found by some lawyer with the story being about an adult Tom Sawyer and this book being the one the editor forced Twain to write I know you are probably thinking that is taking Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman to far but what if that was just the beginning of a new initiative from publishers It could be the latest fashion now no one is interested in vampires any ?What happened to Tom after he grew up was asked in a review by a friend Thinking back on the times his character and the author I've come up with three possible ideas1 He became a bank manager and magistrate in a very small town He married Becky and both put on a lot of weight They had no children but three yappy toy spaniels whom they doted on Mas Thomas Sawyer allowed no leeway with naughty boys and the cane was much in use2 Tom with Huck and Jim found a treasure trove and were given a big reward Aunt Polly invested it until Tom was 21 Tom Huck and Jim bought a steamboat together converted it into a casino and plyed the Mississipi offering Black Jack and Jack Daniels at every stop3 At 18 Tom ran away to New Orleans and took up with a beautiful Creole woman with pale coffee skin and became a preacher in a loudly charismatic church He and his wife had a whole brood of multi coloured kids whom they named for the virtues Abstinence Doughty Chastity Patience Industrious and Worship In later life he met Marie Laveau and went to the dark side a confirmed believer in VoodooOr

    So my daughter just started reading Tom Sawyer for the very first time and I am jealous of her First of all she can read it in original while I read it in translation as a child Second I wish I could still have that immediate surprised response to the silly situations About every five minutes she comes into my room reading out loud some funny uotes making the scenes come alive in my memory again The fight between the two boys threatening with their fake big brothers followed by the famous selling of the honour to take over Tom's Saturday chore the fence white washing and so on and so on All that humorous content is being uoted in a voice broken by giggles Her favourite new expression is the terms of the next disagreement agreed upon as used in the context of the deadly serious war games that Tom Sawyer engages in She's completely mesmerised and she hasn't even got to the scary parts yet or to the budding love affairThere is magic in a children's classic that can make mothers and daughters laugh together at the silliness of naughty boys and at the fact that very little has changed in the dynamics of childhood friendships despite the time that has passed since the novel was writtenIt has just the right mix of exotic historical appeal and universal human behaviour to make a perfect introduction into world literature

    My coworker and my boyfriend made fun of me when I was reading this because apparently it's written for children and they both read it when younger I have nothing to say in my defense I didn't know I don't know most things if that isn't obvious by now On a related note I probably would have enjoyed this when younger It wasn't bad it was okay but I wasn't really itching to keep reading it and didn't have that usual urge that I get when reading a really enjoyable book to give up even going to the bathroom in favor of continuing to read I did really enjoy at the end though when Huck runs away and then Tom finds him and Huck talks about how he's just not cut out for being rich and polite society like same Huck Tom tricking people into painting the fence for him was also A Anyway now I can pretend to be somewhat cultured since I finally read some Mark Twain which is what clearly matters the most here

    Well the Show Me State showed meShowed me how you do it How you write stories so colorfully and so well crafted you could almost cry from reading themPaulette Jiles took me all over the state of Missouri this week in her 2002 publication of Enemy Women a historical fiction novel that takes place in 1864 and then Mark Twain took my daughters and me to St Petersburg Missouri to the real world of 1876And what's in that world of 1876 Missouri?Well riverboats wagons poor white boys overprotective aunts pretty girls adventures in caves and talk of orgies knives guns pipe smoking and a freuent use of the “N” wordAs the narrator of this novel to my daughters these ualities necessitated an immediate discussion at the start of the book We needed to talk about this before we went any further in this readHere's the deal I don't use the “N” word and I don't hang out with people who do I made my boundary clear right as we started I am clever enough to read ahead and say what needs to be said without making myself uncomfortable by using language that twists my intestinesHowever I made something else clear to my girls just because an author depicts their characters authentically does not make them a racist nor does it make the book racistMy children have a writer for a mother They know than they want to know about the writing process and they've also watched their mother eavesdrop on than her fair share of conversations They know by now how obsessed I am with authentic dialogue I can't stand any writer sugar coating or contriving what they hear But as a mother would I have enjoyed either of my girls reading the “N” word over and over again in this book? NoAs the narrator and the mom I chose to leave out all references to the “N” word skip over the boys' curiosity about “orgies” and leave out about half of the talk about smoking And focus on the good The best parts for me watching my daughters laugh at what a drama ueen Tom Sawyer is and being reminded of how many “death scenes” Tom conjures up in his mind so he may convince himself that he's a good person when he visualizes how many people will mourn him I loved watching my girls cover up their faces in disgust when Tom Huck and Joe stripped down to their birthday suits on the island doing handstands and sword fights and whatnot I couldn't help but be reminded of Out Stealing Horses My middle child mumbled from behind the hands covering her face “boys are so repulsive”Yes this is a boy's world for sure These barefooted boys with the ringworm on their scalps and rings of dirt around their necks are a bunch of river ratsBut I must give Mr Twain the credit he deserves here for bringing these authentic characters to life though I do understand the difficulty we face reading some of these classics They are snapshots of how people behaved how some people still behave and sometimes those are painful reminders

    Despite knowing this story front and back it was nice to finally read the unabridged words of one of America's finest storytellers The scene with Tom lost in the cave is notably incredible but Twain's folksy prose is a delight throughout I'm not as familiar with the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Can't wait to start that one soon

    My all time favorite work of fiction I usually read this every summerAs a fourth grader I read this book and took it very seriously It was my dream to build a raft and go adventuring Actually I did build the raft but there was not enough water in the creekMy other great ambition was to come marching into my own funeral I still think that would be fun When I read about Tom taking a licking for Becky Thatcher in school and sharing his cake with her in the cave I thought that was incredibly chivalrous and how things ought to be Because I read this book when I was young before I understood much of the humor I think it shaped the way I think in many waysAs an adult I have re read this book several times and love its timeless humor The descriptions of a little kid at church are totally relevant today I have learned that this book is primarily a light hearted book written about children but for adults

    Although my book is intended mainly for the entertainment of boys and girls I hope it will not be shunned by men and women on that account for part of my plan has been to try to pleasantly remind adults of what they once were themselves and of how they felt and thought and talked and what ueer enterprises they sometimes engaged in Samuel Langhorne Clemens aka Mark Twain The above uote comes straight from the preface of the book and I really cannot add anything else to it; I would not dare to add anything to what was said by the undisputed and best known worldwide classic of USA literature For people that have been living under a rock and thus have no idea what the book is about I will give a very brief description of the plot it is about a life of a young boy in early ninetieth century who lived in Missouri in a small town on Mississippi riverI lost count of the number of times I read this book when I was a young boy but I have not touched the book since I was afraid my rereading of it as an adult would not be as good I was almost right this time the novel was not that good by a tiny little degree I did find some author's thoughts and passages I missed when I was a kid and most of the scenes were almost as good as I remember them I challenge anybody to read the whole scene of famous whitewashing of Aunt Polly's fence or one of her cat and pain killer and keep a serious face without any attempts at smiling at least Had this been my first read ever I would have given it 45 stars but with all of my happy childhood memories this classic gets undisputed highest rating
