Mark Twain was an American writer who wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  His writing style is part of what made him so successful.  His use of social commentary is much more subtle than than the satire of other writers.  Something that I find very interesting is that his book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was based on a real person.  That person was a young misfit who float down the Mississippi River with a slave named Jim.  I cannot wait to read that book.
