Powerful Essays
Summary: This story is about a boy named Tom Sawyer. He made a lot of pranks on people. Once he had to go to the church. But before going, he had to take a bath. So his Aunt Polly put him in a bathtub with water. He hated to take baths, so he didn’t take them. He threw the water away, telling his aunt that he had already taken a bath. She noticed that his hair was still dry, so she made another bath for him full of water and soap. She told him to take another bath and he did. Tom didn’t always go to school and played a lot with his friend Huckleberry Finn. The kids from town weren’t allowed to play with him, because he was a bad mannered boy. Then a new girl came to school: Becky Thatcher. Tom fell in love with her, but she ignored him. And he often went to the place where she lived. One day Tom went to the forest where he found Huckleberry Finn, who lived in the forest without his parents. Huckleberry had warts, so they decided to do something about it. They agreed to go to the graveyard in the middle of the night to cure Huckleberry from his warts. When they arrived there, they were very scared and saw three men. Later they recognized them as Injun Joe, Muff Potter and Dr. Robinson. They were robbing the grave of a man who died a few days ago. The two boys were hidden behind some bushes, and could see and hear everything that was happening. All of a sudden the three men got into a fight and then Injun Joe killed Dr. Robinson. Muff Potter was unconscious at that time, because he was knocked down. When Potter regained consciousness, Injun Joe told Potter that he killed Dr. Robinson. Potter was nervous from the time they got there, and he believed Injun Joe. Injun Joe told him that the best he can do right now, is to run away, and hide; and when he met someone, he should act normal. Then Injun Joe left the graveyard, too. Tom and Huckleberry saw it all, and were witnesses. But they were too scared that Injun Joe would come back for revenge if they told the people in the town what happened. The whole town went to the graveyard the next day, because Dr. Robinson was found dead there. Tom and Huckleberry went too. When they arrived there they also saw Muff Potter. A man who lived near the graveyard told them that it was Potter, who did it. His dog barked that night and when the man looked to see what it was, he recognized Potter. Tom did not want to go to schoo... ... middle of paper ... ... back to Becky and told her to come along, because Injun Joe was coming. At first she does not want to, but later she goes with him. When Tom and Becky got out of the cave, He closed the cave and makes sure that Injun Joe was not able to open the cave again. Tom goes to Huckleberry and tells him that he has seen Injun Joe and that he knew where the treasure was. Tom and Huckleberry took a boat and went back to the cave. There they searched for the treasure. Huckleberry saw a cross in the cave and thought that it was Injun Joe’s ghost. He was scared because of this, but then Tom said that there are no ghosts in the neighborhood of crosses. They kept on searching for the treasure and finally they found it. They went back to the village with the money. There, they told the people that they had found a treasure but nobody believed them so tom showed the treasure. Huckleberry could stay and live with the man who helped him. And a few days later, Huckleberry told Tom that he could keep all the money. But when Huckleberry needed some, Tom had to give it to him. My opinion: I really liked this book! It was really fun to read. I saw the movie too but it was different than the book.
