The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was a good book, but it wasn't a great one. The characters
weren't very diverse, and Mark Twain mainly kept recycling the same characters over and over.
The story is about Huckleberry Finn's dad coming back and trying to take the money Huckleberry
amassed in the previous book, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Huckleberry has already been adopted by a judge, so his dad decides to kidnap his son and drags him out into the wilderness, so he'll become a real man. Huckleberry runs away with a slave named Jim, but instead of going back to his home, he becomes nomad, swindling and stealing from people.
Overall, it was a good book but not a great one.
