Not gonna lie, the book was definitely not what I was expecting. I didn’t really like it as much as I thought I would. The themes were accomplished well, a lot of character development and such. It compares to TKaMB language wise, the dialogue was totally hard to understand. I only liked the part in the end of the book where Jim declares his freedom. The rest was kind of… useless. I would change it that Tom dies to make it interesting, but that sounds really bad. I think a good lesson for modern readers is to not grow up too fast, but know when to be mature. I don’t really think the actual story applies to our society at all, except the abusive dad and immature young boys.
Our Huck Finn project is going to be a journal written by Huck himself and we plan to stain it with tea to make it look old. We’d like to build a small raft and put objects on it that represent each character or theme in the book too. We thought it would be a good way to show the themes in real life and explain them through objects. We were going to do a video but I don’t think that’s going to happen anymore.
