Comments from Groups:

Loved the book - didn't really see it as a children's book. Felt it was rather like Dickens in giving a picture of the times. Huck was a great character whose conscience always gets the better of him. Auckland 016

A stunning observation of post-slavery southern America. Hamilton 036

Most found the language hard work. Took a lot to get into the story. A good unusual read. Pukekohe 002

Nice revisit of an older book. All enjoyed it and could see more clearly the social comments/issues it portrayed than on first reading as children. Mangaweka 001
