The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

summary à eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Mark Twain The Adventures of Tom Sawyer summary ´ 108 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer revolves around the youthful adventures of the novel's schoolboy protagonist Thomas Sawyer whose reputation precedes him for causing mischief and strife Tom lives with his Aunt Polly half brother Sid and cousin Mary in the uaint town of St Petersburg just off the shore of the Mississippi River St Petersburg is described as a typical small town atmosphere where the Christian faith is predominant the social network is close knit and familiarity resides Unlike his brother Sid Tom receives lickings from his Aunt Polly; ever the mischief maker would rather play hooky than attend school and often sneaks out his bedroom window at night to adventure with his friend Huckleberry Finn ­ the town's social outcast Tom despite his dread of schooling is extremely clever and would norma So my daughter just started reading Tom Sawyer for the very first time and I am jealous of her First of all she can read it in original while I read it in translation as a child Second I wish I could still have that immediate surprised response to the silly situations About every five minutes she comes into my room reading out loud some funny uotes making the scenes come alive in my memory again The fight between the two boys threatening with their fake big brothers followed by the famous selling of the honour to take over Tom s Saturday chore the fence white washing and so on and so on All that humorous content is being uoted in a voice broken by giggles Her favourite new expression is the terms of the next disagreement agreed upon as used in the context of the deadly serious war games that Tom Sawyer engages in She s completely mesmerised and she hasn t even got to the scary parts yet or to the budding love affairThere is magic in a children s classic that can make mothers and daughters laugh together at the silliness of naughty boys and at the fact that very little has changed in the dynamics of childhood friendships despite the time that has passed since the novel was writtenIt has just the right mix of exotic historical appeal and universal human behaviour to make a perfect introduction into world literature

summary à eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Mark Twain The Adventures of Tom Sawyer summary ´ 108 Lly get away with his pranks if Sid were not such a tattle tale As punishment for skipping school to go swimming Aunt Polly assigns Tom the chore of whitewashing the fence surrounding the house In a brilliant scheme Tom is able to con the neighborhood boys into completing the chore for him managing to convince them of the joys of whitewashing At school Tom is eually as flamboyant and attracts attention by chasing other boys yelling and running around With his usual antics Tom attempts to catch the eye of Becky Thatcher a new girl in town and persuades her to get engaged by kissing him But their romance collapses when she learns Tom has been engaged previously to Amy Lawrence Shortly after Becky shuns him he accompanies Huckleberry Finn to the graveyard at night where they witness the murder of Dr Rob My coworker and my boyfriend made fun of me when I was reading this because apparently it s written for children and they both read it when younger I have nothing to say in my defense I didn t know I don t know most things if that isn t obvious by now On a related note I probably would have enjoyed this when younger It wasn t bad it was okay but I wasn t really itching to keep reading it and didn t have that usual urge that I get when reading a really enjoyable book to give up even going to the bathroom in favor of continuing to read I did really enjoy at the end though when Huck runs away and then Tom finds him and Huck talks about how he s just not cut out for being rich and polite society like same Huck Tom tricking people into painting the fence for him was also A Anyway now I can pretend to be somewhat cultured since I finally read some Mark Twain which is what clearly matters the most here
