Not much of a detective story Even less of a spoof.
read as part of a collectionsee review here There is a reason Tom Sawyer, Detective remains almost unheard of A very, very good reason From a literary standpoint, it is awful The mystery is dramatic and improbable I had the murder figured out almost from the start The only interesting bit was when Tom s Uncle Silas initially got blamed However, even that wasn t very well explained The fact that a court room would allow a teenager to just interrupt the proceedings and spin a dramatic tale is hard enough to swallow But that they would then act upon that story, even after Tom admits he didn t witness most of what he saidI also didn t care for Huck s POV Referring to the prosecution as the prostitution is only so funny.
It is a sign I m getting old I m losing my taste for the improbable But maybe I m not totally lost yet.
I gave this book two extra stars because, even though it fails as a mystery, it wins as a Boys Adventure Novel At any rate, I think that is what it intended to be It is a story designed to stir the imagination and illustrate the daring, courage, and wit of our intrepid hero This isn t supposed to be a classic read It is simply a good yarn for young readers Who cares if the court scene is unlikely The point is, Tom saves the day There are thieves and murder and last minute discoveries It is exciting and an adventure Not a book I recommend reading unless you re willing to suspend disbelief, or if you particularly enjoy children s adventure books from this time Unfortunately, Huck s language continues to be too much of a problem for this to be good for younger readers I don t really regret reading it, though I take pleasure in reflecting on it as a whole than as a specific story.
As I enjoyed Tom Sawyer, and really enjoyed The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which I considered quite a subversive book which is a big plus for me , I thought this would provide me double enjoyment detective fiction and revisiting with Tom and Huck Well, it wasn t much of a mystery, and though it is narrated by Huck, Huck seems less authentic than in his own book, and is even somewhat citified and not dressed as shabbily as elsewhere Even in Tom Sawyer, he is characterized as something of a wild child, untamed by the civilizing effects of the town Here, the town seems to have taken full hold of Huck here.
This story was a further adventure of Tom and Huck and it takes place after Huckleberry Finn.
