PDF Mark Twain Ê The Adventures of Tom Sawyer PDF ☆ The Adventures Ê

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 quaint 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 normally 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 equally 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 RobinsonExcerptTOM No answer TOM No answer What's gone with that boy  I wonder? You TOM No answer The old lady pulled her spectacles down and looked over them about the room then she put them up and looked out under them She seldom or never looked through them for so small a thing as a boy they were her state pair the pride of her heart and were built for style not service—she could have seen through a pair of stove lids just as well She looked perplexed for a moment and then said not fiercely but still loud enough for the furniture to hear Well I lay if I get hold of you I'll— She did not finish for by this time she was bending down and punching under the bed with the broom and so she needed breath to punctuate the punches with She resurrected nothing but the cat I never did see the beat of that boy

    I was five and a half years old when my mother gave me The Adventures of Tom Sawyer as a New Year's gift she is a literature teacher and I have been reading novels since the tender age of four or so and so it seemed appropriateBeing a diligent and serious¹ child neither of those qualities have stuck with me unfortunately I opened it to page 1 and started reading I even took it with me to kindergarten where other kids were learning letters and I was mercifully allowed to read hefty tomes having obviously achieved full literacy by that point¹ Me age 5 and Mom The diligent seriousness is all over this picture This book initially left me quite confused but I was undeterred after all the world was a confusing place full of adults and rules and great books even those without pictures And I was very proud to own books without pictures after all But his one was just too strange its beginning did not quite fit with the rest of the quite fun story it was odd and dry and incomprehensible for the first 40 pages or so and it even was about some other guy Samuel Clemens? who was not Tom SawyerA few years later I reread my early childhood favorite I probably reached a ripe old age of eight or so still diligent but a bit less serious already It was then that I figured out what seemed strange about the beginning of this book when I was fiveYou see I diligently slogged my way through the most boring academic foreword assuming that was the first chapter What amazes me that I managed to stay awake through it Good job five year old me Excellent preparation for that painfully boring biochemistry course a couple of decades laterAfter that foreword slogging through any classic was a comparative breeze Yes I'm looking at you War and Peace You know what you did you endless tomeAlso as it turns out when you include two characters named Joe in one book Injun Joe and Tom's classmate Joe Harper that can cause a certain amount of confusion to a five year old who assumes they have to be the same person and struggles really hard to reconcile their seemingly conflicting characters And as a side note I have always been disappointed at Tom Sawyer tricking his friends to do the infamous fence whitewashing A real kid knows after all that painting stuff is fun Five year old me was a bit disapproving of the silliness I have told bits and pieces of this book to my friends on the playground while dangling from the monkey bars or building sandcastles in a sandbox that in retrospect I suspect was used by the neighborhood stray cats as a litterbox but I guess you have to develop immunity to germs somehow We may have planned an escape to an island in a true Tom Sawyer fashion but the idea fizzled After all we did not have an island nearby which was a problem Also we may have got distracted by the afternoon cartoonsSomeday I just may have to leave this book within a reach of my future hypothetical daughter as long as I make sure it does not come with a long winded boring introduction
