Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn This story follows a thirteen year old boy named Huckleberry Finn, and the adventures and hardships he deals with throughout the story. Huck was the kind of kid that didn't like being told what to do, he liked to do things he wanted to do. During the story Huck had did something that he probably should not have done that could have got him in a lot of trouble. In the book it talks about how Huck’s dad used to beat him when he was drunk. Because Huck was beat as a child he was taken from his father and put in the care of the widow. Being that he was now in the care of the widow he had to follow by her roles, but he didn’t listen. I believe that Huck Finn is the protagonist of the story because he is the main…show more content…
All Huck’s conflicts begin with him joining Tom Sawyer band of robbers. “Now we’ll start this band of robbers and call it Tom Sawyer’s gang” (page 7). When he was in the gag they wanted to kill the men and ransome out the women for just make them fall in love with them. “Oh, certainly. It’s best. Some authorities think different, but mostly it’s considered best to kill them. Except some that you bring to the cave here and keep them till they’re ransomer” (page 8). One of the members want to leave the gang. “Little Tommy Barnes was asleep, now, and when they waked him up he was scared, and cried, now, and said he wanted to go home to his ma, and didn't want to ba a robber anymore” (page 10). Huck was involved in a lot of conflict, it seemed that when something good happened then something really bad would happen. Like when he meant the Grangerfords and they told him about the family found they had, the one daughter like one of the Shepherdson boys. The two families killed the men in both families for the fude. One of the Shepherdson boys wrote something on a piece of paper for Miss Sophia. “ Then she said she’d forgot her Testament, and left it in the seat at church, between two other books and would I slip out quiet and go there and fetch it to her, and not say nothing to nobody” (page 111). I could write so much more about the conflict and hardship Huck was involved…show more content…
I think people can relate to Huck because they can see themselves in his situation with his father and Jim. Most of the time Huck’s father was no present in his life because he would leave for a long time and then come back. “Pap he hadn’t been seen for more than a year, and that was comfortable for me; I didn’t want to see him no more” (page 11). There was a lot of moments in the story where I could relate to the things Huck was going through. The situation with his drunk father is probably the part I would root for Huck for him to get out of that situation. Pap was abusive towards Huck when he was drunk he would beat him and locked him in the caban when Pap left. “Once he locked me in and was gone for three days” (page 24). Huck wanted to leave the cabain when Pap was not there but Pap was careful about leaving something sharp laying around. “Pap was pretty careful no to leave a knife or anything in the cabin when he was away” (page 24). There was also times in the book were I would not root for Huck like when he wanted to turn Jim in. Huck wanted to turn Jim in for that money and because he didn’t want to get in trouble for helping a slave run
