Present Tense Book Review – The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: Part 2

(Part One of this Present Tense Book Review.)

Another 10 chapters down, and Huck’s had an implausible number of exciting and life-threatening adventures. Fun, but shot through with darker themes, of childhood illness, and deadly feuds; and slavery, obviously. It’s hardly ground-breaking to state that Twain’s writing is brilliant, but it is – I enjoy reading it, and the anti-slavery message is clearly advanced, inch by inch, without ever getting in the way of the story.
