Tom and Huck

It has been a very long time since I read Huckleberry Finn, and I finished listening to it today in the car. I think I agree with some critics about how Tom’s appearance ruins the last third of the book. Huck is essentially generous and good hearted, and Tom’s ideas about adventure and the way those ideas affect Jim are painful to read.

Still, a glorious book. It was worth rereading.
