Recently, I have read a very interesting book, the Adventures of Tom Sawyer. And the companion volume is the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. This book described an American boy, Tom Sawyer’s fantastic adventure. The author of this novel is one of my favorite writers, Mark Twain, who was honored as “the literary giant” and was good at writing satirical novels. The reason that I enjoy Mark Twain’s composition is that he always brought me into a funny world by using very simple description but perfect writing skills and attractive story structures. Nevertheless, when I finished reading his words, I would think some deeper and serious things that he wanted to convey to us. The style of Mark Twain’s composition is humorous but actually very sharp, which exposed the weakness and the hypocrite of human nature and expressed his desiring for a perfect and ideal world.
You don't know about me if you haven't read a book called the Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Mr. Mark Twain wrote the book and most of it is true. The heroin of this novel, Tom Sawyer, was a brave and active boy. But he got tired of his family, his school as well as the church. He was not satisfied with a hidebound life but dreamed of a free and venturesome life. This naughty but clever boy lost his parents since child. Thus he lived with his aunt who loved him very much. He always escaped from school, and played various games with his friends. He even fell in love with a girl and tried again and again to win her favor. One day, Tom and his friend Huck came across a murdering. An Indian Joe killed a doctor because of disagreement and imputed it to another partner Porter. The two young boys were extremely frightened and decided to keep the secret. But actually Tom was anxious all the time. After that, Tom had conflict with the girl, he leaved at home with Huck angrily and started their adventure. People in the town thought that they had died. When they held funeral for these boys, Tom and his friends appeared. Since then, Tom became hero in school, and reconciled with that girl. Soon, the court was about to judge that murder case. When everyone considered Porter as the murderer, Tom bravely exposed the true murderer Joe. But unfortunately, Joe ran away, so Tom was trapped into enormous anxiety. Once time, Tom met a partner of Joe in a haunted house. He heard that they would go to find treasure. Several days later, Tom went to a picnic with his friends. But he and the girl Becky got lost in a cave. They had suffered from hunger, thirsty, darkness and coldness for days in that cave. Worse still, they found that Indian Joe also in that cave. This time, all the town folk believed that they must have die. Especially Tom’ aunt and Thatcher were in deep sorrow. Beyond people’ expectation, Tom and Becky found the way, and was sent to their home by others. And because of this accident, the cave was sealed. When Tom heard that, he told the judge that Joe was still stay at that cave. When the judge fetched someone to check it, Joe had died in the cave. Then, Tom and Huck got into that cave again, and found the treasure that Joe and his partner were finding. Tom got a happy ending, he became a rich man and was popular in his town.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a clear reflection of the child's life is full of Children's novels. I have to say that clever Tom reminded me of my childhood. We always lost something as we grow up and gradually got lost in our life. A child would not tell lies to other, a child would speak out their feelings without hesitation, a child would care too much about other’s opinions, and a child would bravely do what they wanted. Likewise, in that time, people were pretty reserve, and they did not dare to tell their own ideas, neither fight against the tradition. But Tom was brave. He challenged the tradition. He never restricted himself into school or homework like other child, he loved adventure and different challenges instead. He exposed the true murderer even though he might be dangerous. So the author Mark Twain designed a good ending for Tom.
It was Mark Twain’s humor that attracted me most. But there was not only humor, people who read his books would learn something serious. He told us: tell the truth forever, such of words you need not record you to once say somewhat. So
