9780099540892: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (Vintage Classics)

Impish, daring young Tom Sawyer is the bane of the old, the hero of the young. There were some in his dusty old Missippi town who believed he would be President, if he escaped a hanging. For wherever there is mischief or adventure, Tom is at the heart of it. During one hot summer, Tom witnesses a murder, runs away to be a pirate, attends his own funeral, rescues an innocent man from the gallows, searches for treasure in a haunted house, foils a devilish plot and discovers a box of gold. But can he escape his nemesis, the villainous Injun Joe?

Review:

"The hero is one of the most endearing in literature" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Twain shares a talent for well-observed caricature with Dickens...adventure, social commentary and good humour runs though his fiction" ( Sunday Express)

"In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Twain anticipates every modern American novel, from Salinger's The Catcher In The Rye to Pynchon's Mason And Dixon, in mapping a fluvial, free-flowing adventure" ( Guardian)

"Twain had a gift for reliving the innermost feelings of growing up, the insecurity, fears and hopes that lie beneath the swagger that young boys maintain. He turned them into literature" ( Daily Mail)

"This classic story will stay with you through life, and always remind you of the things that you knew were important when you first read it" (Katy Guest The Independent)

Book Description:

The classic boy-hero of American literature
