Rating: 5


Tom Sawyer gets into mischief and mayhem with his friend Huck Finn in the Mark Twain classic, The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer.


Mississippi Murder and Mischief

Tom Sawyer is an orphan who lives with his Aunt Polly on the banks of the Mississippi River more than 100 years ago - during a time when slavery still existed and people thought you could cure warts by playing with dead cats. When Tom isn't trying to show off for the cutest girl in school, Becky Thatcher, he's off with his best friend, Huck Finn, fishing, playing with frogs or pretending to be a pirate. But when the pair witness a terrible murder, Tom and Huck's adventures take a thrilling turn.


Double Trouble

Tom Sawyer and his friend, Huck, are first-class trouble makers, which many of you will probably be able to relate to - especially if you've ever just wanted to just walk out of a boring math class and go skateboarding, or in Tom's case, go rafting down the Mississippi River and pretend to be a pirate. Tom and Huck are free spirits whose sense of adventure is more important than things like bathing or going to school.


The Bottom Line

The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer is a great read that has a bit of everything - treasure hunts, murder, romance and a neat look at what life was like when kids played with dead rats and frogs, instead of PS2s and Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Each chapter is a unique adventure that fits into a larger story about the importance of friendship and the idea of freedom.

i have changed my views on things like this, i think 99% of people that hunt and the people that complain about the hunting are complete hypocrites though.  if you think that its justified to kill an animal in a given context, you must have a difference between a human and the animal that if true of the human would justify killing the animal, otherwise you say X justifies killing something but doesnt justify killing something ate the same time, which of course is a contradiction. hopefully people can understand that.

I am mad the these dumb people have voted for a man that doesn't even know how to run things. Ya he made a company. And he is rich. He called people horrible things. He should be impeached. Hillary Clinton would be a much better president. Thank You For Your Time. If you don't like what you are seeing then please comment on my profile and i would gladly put you in your place.
