The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain

5 stars
There is a reason this book is a classic; a master storyteller writing a playful and riveting tale of boyhood. As Twain wrote at 71, "It is a pity we can not escape from life when we are young." With the idyllic characters of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, Twain has offered such an escape to enter within. This was the perfect summer read.
