I thought that “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” was a rather funny short story. It was very satirical and fun to read. I thought it was funny how they stereotyped westerners as stupid people, and easterners were stereotyped as snobby, smart people. For the way we did independent reading this year, it was a nice mix up from the regular quiz’s we had to take. it didn’t really affect how i read my book, because i was interested in it either way. As for Huck Finn, i can tell by the first chapter it’s going to be satirical and interesting to read.
