I recently finished Mark Twain's classic book called Tom Sawyer. It was a very thought provoking novel in addition to being an exciting adventure. It taught me a lot about life and relationships while keeping me entertained at the same time. The main character Tom Sawyer taught me many lessons on both ends of the spectrum. By that I mean both what to do and what not to do in a given situation.
Through Tom’s various shenanigans, such as leaving home while pretending to be a pirate, the reader is sucked into the novel wanting to know more. There are various occasions where Tom proves himself to be either gallant or stupid. This keeps the reader from ever truly knowing the outcome of his various adventures until Twain chooses to reveal them. Overall, Tom Sawyer was an outstanding novel, and it kept my interest from cover to cover. If you haven’t read it yet, I’d recommend it to anyone in middle school or above in order to get the most out of it. If you have already read Tom Sawyer, please let me know what you thought of it.
