3.5 out of 5

I gave this book 3.5 because the story was good, but it was difficult to read. I liked the adventure that Huck went on even though he was 13. He was living every kids dream.

4 out of 5

I gave the story a 4 because I really liked the plot. It had a really nice adventurous feel to it and I like those kind of books. Some of it was hard to understand, but after readying the book, confusing parts started to make sense.

4.5 out of 5

I really liked what was going on in the story. It all fit together really good. Reading it was tough because of the language that Mark Twain wrote it in.
