A literary reflection on Tom Sawyer
"Often, the less there is to justify a traditional custom, the harder it is to get rid of it."
A classic but at the same time an adventurous read. While reading the book, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, by Mark Twain although it was written in 1875 there were still many similarities between the book and what many kids do nowadays. Essentially what Mark Twain is trying to do when he wrote this novel he was trying to show the perspective of an eleven year old boy growing up in a poor town in Missouri. He really wanted to show what kids at that time went through and most likely used thing s that he did in his childhood and brought that into the book.
