Don't think you'll get away from Huck and his friend Tom so easily! This time Huckleberry is the main character and he is determined to save his friend Jim from slavery. Tom is also here but he knows something others yet do not. The Afro-American Jim will suffer many hardships and strange adventures on his way to freedom but his friends are already there to help him. Mark Twain considered the question of slavery very painful and important, so he speaks through his heroes, young boys, ill-mannered but honest and brave. For him, a person needn't actually be refined as long as he/she is kind and trustworthy. Huckleberry and Tom are truly naughty but this doesn't prevent them from doing good things because in reality they are the examples of lost children in the cruel and calculating world of adults. Still, Twain does remain ironic about the importance of social status - does it really matter who you are? Wouldn't it matter more what do you do in this life and how you do it? The author studies these questions with restless energy placing the most adorable young buzzers in the most unusual adult situations!
