Adventures of Tom Sawyer

by Mark Twain

This book was in my course in class 5th. And the good thing about this book was that the children, who normally hate anything related to course, simply loved it.

The story is about young boy Tom Sawyer and his friends Huckleberry Finn, Joe Harper and his girlfriend Becky Thacher. Another legendary character in the story is Aunt Polly, the foster parent of Tom.

The story is full of adventures of Tom and his friends, which are quite common in childhood like stealing, acting as Pirates. The boy is really dare devil and diplomat. The best of his tricks I remember is about painting the fence, where he convinces all his friends that it’s a very enjoyable job, and he takes payment for allowing them to paint the fence.

The number of sequels to this novel has been written Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,Tom Sawyer Abroad, Tom Sawyer Detective.

It is considered to be the legendary work of Mark Twain, and became International Bestseller. Number of movies were also made based on this novel.

I recommend it to all the children, to have fun. And also, I recommend it to all the adults, who wants to revisit the memories of their childhood.
