my thoughts for the novel as a whole is that the novel was trash. it was not better than expected because i could not get passed how stupid they sounded while they talked. it did accomplish its job with the themes of southern romanticism and hypocrisy. i feel like compared to most novels it was all over the place. i honestly lost track of their goal throughout the novel. they were going up north to free jim, but i lost that goal when they met the duke and king. once we met them, all they talked out was basically the duke and king, we lost sight of jim i feel lie until they sold him. whereas other novels it is easy to stay on track of their goal throughout the novel. i did not like the end of the novel either. it was not a good ending because it made me hat Tom more than i already did. if i could something about the end, it would be Huck’s role model. tom was an awful role model on huck. at the end of the novel, Tom completely turned his back on Huck. the most important things for a modern reader to take away from this novel is the idea of real friendship. Huck and Tom were not real friends because friends don’t turn their backs on each other. But Huck and Jim eventually became real friends. Huck did not stop to help free Jim, and that is a real friend. the novel does apply to society today. today their are still people that are racist and sexist. so they can take notes from characters in this novel that rebelled from those norm rolls for the time. they also can take notes for what real friends do because now a days there are so many fake friends.
for our Huck Finn project my group has decided to make a cards against humanity game and call it “Huck against Humanity.” we chose to do this because we wanted to do a game to make it fun, but our teacher said if we do a game then it can’t be a game kids can play because the novel is not meant for kids. so my very first thought for a game was cards against humanity because it’s such an inappropriate game. i think we can really do a good job on this and execute the characters and theme with this.
