This is a fun read, and gives you a peek back in time.

I first read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer as a kid and recall that I liked it then. Well, I like it now, too. The story moves along with lots of little incidents between the big stories of the murder and treasure. The entire episode in the cave is particularly good. It was definitely worth it to read again. The only downside is the racism; not that Mark Twain has written a racist story. The story is set during the days of slavery. Intense racism is part of Tom Sawyer's world. There are passages, although surprisingly few, that are unpleasant. If nothing else, it reminds us how far we've come down the path, and, that fortunately, Twain was on the right path away from that world.
