    1. 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 appropriate).Being 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 to [...]


    2. عن مغامرات الطفل الشقي توم سوير وأصدقاءهThe adventures of naughty little boy, Tom Sawyer and his friends.You won't believe it wrote 150 years ago,as Mark Twain's procedure is simple and fluid. He do not show off with language techniques or dictionary's vocabulary. just adventures and events, no silly metaphors an enjoyable novel that i have read at one session On starting reading "Huckleberry Finn", I knew that it was the second part of "The Adventures of Tom Sa [...]


    3. Update All we need now is a "lost" manuscript by Twain to be found by some lawyer with the story being about an adult Tom Sawyer and this book being the one the editor "forced" Twain to write. I know you are probably thinking that is taking Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman to far, but what if that was just the beginning of a new initiative from publishers. It could be the latest fashion now no-one is interested in vampires any more?__________What happened to Tom after he grew up was asked in a rev [...]


    4. So, my daughter just started reading Tom Sawyer for the very first time, and I am jealous of her!First of all, she can read it in original, while I read it in translation as a child. Second, I wish I could still have that immediate, surprised response to the silly situations. About every five minutes, she comes into my room, reading out loud some funny quotes, making the scenes come alive in my memory again. The fight between the two boys threatening with their fake big brothers, followed by the [...]


    5. My all-time favorite work of fiction. I usually read this every summer.As a fourth grader I read this book and took it very seriously. It was my dream to build a raft and go adventuring. Actually I did build the raft, but there was not enough water in the creek.My other great ambition was to come marching into my own funeral. I still think that would be fun. When I read about Tom taking a licking for Becky Thatcher in school and sharing his cake with her in the cave, I thought that was incredibl [...]


    6. Book Review4+ out of 5 stars for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, a classic novel written in 1876 by Mark Twain. Another book where there are likely tons of reviews, each covering the plot, summary, characters, writing and themes. I'll try not to do that, but instead a few quick hits on what made me like this one so much. An author's job is difficult. You undoubtedly have hundreds of ideas and images swimming around inside your head. You may want to try to correct a wrong in society. You could be h [...]


    7. Although my book is intended mainly for the entertainment of boys and girls, I hope it will not be shunned by men and women on that account, for part of my plan has been to try to pleasantly remind adults of what they once were themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked, and what queer enterprises they sometimes engaged in.Samuel Langhorne Clemens aka Mark TwainThe above quote comes straight from the preface of the book and I really cannot add anything else to it; I would not dare t [...]


    8. How many people get to crash their funeral?Is it sort of weird that I want to do this? I mean it would be such a fun surprise for people or bad depending on what they thought of you. Imagine going to the funeral of your sworn enemy and then he bursts through the door, you’d be so disappointed or as equally amazed if you just buried your best friend and he turns up to say hi. It something to ponder at least, other than that this book is pretty shit. I mean the narrative structure is a mess, the [...]


    9. Been a while since Huck Finn, & I finally got around to reading this, a certain preparation text for the Mississippi River classic. This one is considered far inferior, and it is. Although, I must admit, the opening is stronger and the adventures are more varied. There is substantially more comedy in this, more of a dabbling with the picaresque—far more enjoyable then. But Huckleberry has a more pervasive pathos than this one: overall, a stronger sense of the loneliness experienced one laz [...]


    10. "Looky-here, Tom, being rich ain't what it's cracked up to be. It's just worry and worry, and sweat and sweat, and a-wishing you was dead all the time."This book is great. I hadn't read it in years, and found it just as good as the previous times I've read it. An American classic by the late, great Mark Twain.Tom Sawyer isn't really a bad kid although he's always painted and remembered as a little troublemaker, the truth is he has a strong conscience and a strong moral compass. Sure he'll "hook" [...]


    11. There are few children's stories as memorable for boys as Tom Sawyer. Whether it is pre-adolescent fascination with girls, getting away with not working, or a late night adventure - Tom Sawyer has it all in spades. My kid absolutely loves this book and we go back to it every few years over and over again. It is a true reading pleasure which you should absolutely not deprive yourself of.


    12. Luego del estado de aturdimiento general en que me dejó el Ulises de James Joyce, necesitaba leer una novela que me despejara un poco la mente. Algo disfrutable, una historia agradable y que mejor que disfrutar de las aventuras de Tom Sawyer…Samuel Clemens, más conocido como Mark Twain, es un escritor que aprecio mucho. Sus cuentos y novelas son de una estética elevada, disfrutable y amena. Poseo un volumen de sus cuentos selectos, que estimo releer el año que viene y quería volver a leer [...]


    13. There's not much that can be said about this book by a hack like me that would do it justice. Mark Twain was the first American writer to figure out how to turn the American vernacular into art, and he was the first historian to document how we talked. He also was a visionary who saw the problems of race and the problem racism would be in the future, and he tried to warn the future the only way he knew how: by writing about it then. He was gutsy and he was talented and he was hilarious, and this [...]


    14. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Mark TwainThomas "Tom" Sawyer is the title character of the Mark Twain novel "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" (1876). He appears in three other novels by Twain: "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" (1884), "Tom Sawyer Abroad" (1894), and "Tom Sawyer, Detective" (1896).عنوانها: تام سایر؛ توم سایر؛ ماجراهای تام سایر؛ تاریخ نخستین خوانش: ماه فوریه سال 1981 میلادیعنوان: تام سایر؛ نویسند [...]


    15. This coming of age novel is an important American classic because:1) It is the precursor for the bigger and more important Mark Twain novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.2) It is a historical fiction giving readers a glimpse of the laid back town's life in the mid to late 19th century. The town is called St. Petersburg that is based on Hannibal, Missouri, the hometown of Mark Twain. This book is basically a satire of the customs and superstitions that Americans practiced and believed durin [...]


    16. As a child, nothing terrified me more than being lost. My parents found this hilarious. Every time we went on a road trip, my dad would wait a few hours and then start moaning that we had somehow gotten lost. "We're looost! We're looost!" he would wail, and in the backseat I would immediately start bawling. My vivid memories of this suggest that the fear grabbed me long after I should have been old enough to realize that a little kid can't really be lost while with his parents, let alone that yo [...]


    17. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is one of the great classics of English literature and I think one of the most important books for any writer. I read the adventures of Tom Sawyer when I was a child, but I still remember with a smile the wonderful story of Mark Twain.Spanish version: Las aventuras de Tom Sawyer es uno de los grandes clásicos de la literatura inglesa y un referente para cualquier autor actual. Leí la aventuras de Tom Sawyer cuando era pequeño pero aún hoy sigo recordando con una [...]


    18. كتاب يصلح للمراهقين أكثر ما يميزه أسلوب مارك توين الساخر المميز


    19. I feel a certain sense of guilt when I don't enjoy a classic. I find myself filled with sorrow at having missed what is so beloved or important about a text to have allowed it to stand the test of time. Nethertheless, here we are.Whilst this did not begin as an unenjoyable novel, I found myself weary with the repetition of Tom's antics, as this wore on. The headstrong Tom Sawyer, who made for such an initially witty and clever protagonist started to become, dare I say it, dull! I believe this wa [...]


    20. Three things I've learned from reading Tom Sawyer:1. Marbles are an acceptable form of currency. So provided I didn't throw out my set when I moved, I'm rich and can whitewash as many fences as I want.2. Boys are dicks to the girls they like.This is a lie.This is the more likely scenario.3. Books read better when you're not being forced to read them.Next on my required reading list is The Great Gatsby. Mother have mercy


    21. What to say about this book?Tom Sawyer is an intrepid adventurer, an incurable romantic, a devious trickster, a mischievous imp, a hopeless dreamer a lot of things rolled into one. He is THE BOY who epitomises boyhood.As Bertie Wooster would say - he reminds me that I too, once, lived in Arcady.


    22. “A modern day warriorMean, mean strideToday's Tom SawyerMean, mean pride”- “Tom Sawyer” by RushClassic prog-rock man!I’ve always wondered what Rush’s (probably) most popular song has to do with Mark Twain’s young protagonist. Something to do with being a free-spirited rebel I think, though I cannot imagine Tom Sawyer as a warrior. Tom, in fact, seems almost like a juvenile delinquent, though – through the course of this novel – there is no real malice in him. To quote his Aunt [...]


    23. Karly *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)*

      T, is for Twain.3.5 StarsIf you have ever been a young girl you have learned one unavoidable fact; boys are the worst! They are self-absorbed, morbid and cruel. They'll call you names, pull on your hair and treat you entirely like crap.The Adventures of Tom Sawyer revolves around, surprise, a young troublemaker named Tom. To my way of thinking Tom is a fairly good example of the average youngster. While his adventures may be grander than most, his selfishness and lack of compassion is not. (I am [...]

    25. ،عندما أنهي كتابتها مارك توين قرر أنها للناشئين .لكن قرأها أيضا و استمتع بها عدد لا يحصي من الكبار علي مر السنين و تحتوي علي ذكريات طفولة مارك توين علي نهر المسيسيبي ،والكثير من الأحداث والشخصيات أخذت مباشرة من الحياة__________________________توم الولد الذكي الشقي الذي لا يطيع أوامر و ن [...]


    26. What is it that makes this book special to me? This is my second read; I enjoyed it very much as a 10-year-old and still very much now. It is a book for all ages. I am referring to both the age of the reader and the age in which they are living. Published in 1876, it was written 141 years ago and it is till enjoyable to read. Now that is a classic and what being a classic is all about. I couldn't possibly have understood many of the satirical swipes Twain passes at religion, government, etiquett [...]


    27. One of the greatest novels ever written about life and society in the 19th century. I'm furious that schools are banning this book due to language. Instead of banning, use it as a teaching tool. *smh*My Rating: 5++ stars


    28. Tom, guascone dalla gran favella2,5*Spesso ci sono dei libri che dovrebbero essere letti in un preciso arco temporale della nostra vita. Le avventure di Tom Sawyer ne è un fulgido esempio.Twain ha scritto uno spaccato della sua vita ai tempi dell'infanzia. Probabilmente la parte mal digerita risiede nella narrazione troppo divulgativa che lascia poco spazio all'immaginazione.Inoltre Tom Sawyer è un catalizzatore. Senza Huckleberry Finn non mostra tutto il suo potenziale. Ma quando sono assieme [...]


    29. My book reading mirrors the way I choose to approach life in so many ways. This little look back on past reads brings to mind one of the main ones. How I like to take memories off the shelf to review but not relive; compared to how I take books off the shelf to review but not reread. My long term goal is to run through each shelf of books I have saved on this site and remember/review all of the books they contain.I met this wonderful little book early on in my life. Another one of those adventur [...]


    30. Hallé mucha inocencia en las cualidades de Tom Sawyer y sus amigos. En sus temores, supersticiones, travesuras e incluso en sus momentos introspectivos. Creo que me gustó mucho ese matiz entre la manera de narrar de Twain, tal vez nada infantil, su humor y lo movido de las aventuras de este chico y de quienes le acompañaban. Lo disfruté al máximo porque exploraba no solo los actos de un niño sino sus motivaciones y sus maneras de ver las cosas.En las escenas más divertidas (entre las que [...]
