History in the United States of America was not prity. There was unfortunatly slavery, and Mark Twain wrote the reality of it all, right down to the spelling of how the english language was spoken in the south. He was very realistic, something many literary writters of today do not focus on. Many minorities were mistreated and degraded. They were forced to work in dehuminizing conditions, families were torn apart and sold, beaten and tortured. What kind of history did you learn in school that makes you think Mark Twain wrote this out of pure fiction? Welcome to the reality of real history the way it did happen with slavery in the past, its ugly but sadly true. Mark Twain wrote this book to show how the cruelty of humanity was and HE WAS ASHAMED of it (slavery).
I've said it once and I will say it again, I utterly disguise this book and I do not understand why educational institutions insist on this offensive book being a part of the curriculum. My first review on this book was deleted, so I am writing again. No matter in what way, shape, or form you try to mask it, Mark Twain had a racist mindset, if he did not he would've portrayed Jim in a more dignified way instead of "de-humanizing" him into some human pet for Finn. Not to mention that a degrading term was used in this book not once but TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN times. Do not read this book.
