Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was a story of Huckleberry Finn or Huck who get a sum of money from his adventure with his best friend Tom, the book plot starts from the end of Adventures of Tom Sawyer book. Huck was in guardianship under Widow Douglas, who wants to teach him religion with her sister Miss Watson. Huck told about this to Tom and Tom helped him to get escaped.

Huck gets kidnapped by his father and he kept him in an old cabin where he beats him. One day Huck decides to pretend to be dead and his father saw that and left him.

Huck later ran to Jackson’s Land where he met Jim, Miss Watson slave and soon both of them became friends. One day both of them passing a river on a raft and decides to go on the states where the government banned slavery.

One night their raft get destroyed after getting hit by Steamship and both Huck and Jim get separated. Huck look for Jim and after finding him both start making another raft and reached a small town with King and Duke, who are tricksters.

King and Duke told Huck a plan to get Peter Wilks wealth, who has died. Huck doesn’t like it and informs Wilks family about their plan. Both King and Duke ran away to another town and met Silas Phelps and tried to sell Huck to him. Silas Phelps was Tom’s uncle and Huck met Tom at his house and ask his help to free Jim from Miss Watson.

Tom informed Huck that Jim is already free because Miss Watson died. Huck was very happy after hearing this and took Jim with him and went to the west before anyone caught him.

Huckleberry character describes himself to be a free-minded, he doesn’t like restriction and someone to control him. He wants to be free, he loves nature and wants to live his life freely.

Moral of the story is “Live the life the way you want to live and be happy, whatever the situation is, never yourself controlled by others”.

My rating for this book is 5/5.
