The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain, Guy Cardwell, John Seelye
Huh. This was the first time reading Huck Finn for me.

Huck's keen observations while maintaining a lot of innocent was good. The humor was good. I want to write a fanfic for the two fraudsters, of course. They're practically canon.

However: Yeah, the end was totally a cop out. Twain lost his nerve and pandered to his audience, and the story lost its impact.
