Tom Sawyer

“Human beings can be awful cruel to one another.” thus wrote Samuel Clemens, that is Mark Twain in his book,   The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer. Good Morning, I am Kaustubh Bansal of class 8D and am here in front of you to present the book review of The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer By Mark Twain. Surely, Twain has not at all been cruel on us as his book is remarkable  
Tom Sawyer, originally published in 1876, exemplifies the boy every child wants to be; free, adventuresome, moral, and intelligent. Born in the heart of the South, in Missouri, Tom is much like the young author, Samuel Clemens (better known as Mark Twain); a boy distrustful of routine, spirited, and possessing a strong sense of right and wrong. Tom, an orphan, lives with his Aunt Polly.                                                                  
Twain’s style of writing is simple and conveys his ideas in a boyish mood. The book is somewhat of an irony in itself because of this style. He gives his complex observations on society through the eyes and through the speech of a young boy out for adventure. He also pays close attention to detail in dealings with the different areas down the river, especially in speech and dialogue. There is a heavy use of sarcasm, and dialect.
Twain ends his tale with the fact that most of the characters are still happy and well, but his story deals strictly with children and he refuses to go past that point. This lovely and lively tale is a must-read for all Twain fans. It brings back the excitement and folly of youth and best yet reminds us of our own curiosity-filled youths. All of us have a little Tom Sawyer in us!
