Tom Sawyer Review

The Adventure 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 live with his Aunt Polly, half-brother Sid, and cousin Mary in the saint town of St. Petersburg, just off the shore of the Mississippi River. St. Petersburg is describe as a typical small-town atmosphere where the Christian faith is predominant, the social network is close-knit, and familiarity resides.


Tom Sawyer was the 2nd Mark Twain book I read. Entering 11th grade, I read Huckleberry Finn, as the optional book for required reading. I love Huckleberry Finn, so it is of no surprise that I wanted to read Tom Sawyer. Tom Sawyer does have Huckleberry Finn as one of its characters. I really loved this book- from some of Tom’s pirating adventures, school adventures, and looking for treasure adventures. He does like causing mischief, but still an amazing protagonist.

If you loved Huckleberry Finn, you will love Tom Sawyer.

  1. I’ve never read anything by Mark Twain, which is maybe a little shocking. I feel like I should get to some of his stuff, but I just haven’t ever felt all that drawn to any of his books, at this point. We’ll see what happens, though! Maybe I’ll read something of his at some point and really fall in love!


    • Kind of surprising, yes.

      Only was able to start Mark Twain due to summer reading. Of the optional books entering 11th grade, I choose Huckleberry Finn.
