Huckleberry Finn was born as the son of an almost always drunk man and was brought up with a rough life. Like the rest of the book, he was a very superstitious person, believing that if you went to a graveyard at midnight, and buried a cat, your warts would disappear. He also believed that if a dog was howling straight at you, or if you looked at the full moon over your left shoulder, you would die.
Huckleberry Finn was a very rough person, and once they were searching for treasure, they found around 12,000 dollars in gold. Now 12,000 dollars was like 100,000 dollars of today, so that's ALOT.
Huckleberry Finn was then adopted by a kind lady and went to school. But he was not used to this stuff. He was used to waking up whenever he wanted, sleeping wherever he wanted, and not working. So he could not bear it that he had to wake up when the bell rings, eat when the bell rings and that he had to eat with forks and spoons. It was too civilized for him, you know?
Tom Swayer then promised him, that if he went to school like a good boy, he could become like Robin Hood, a robber with Tom Swayer. Huckleberry Finn readily agreed. Later on, Huckleberry Finn's father came to him to steal money, and after whipping him for going to school (for no one in the family knew how to write), he went away. Now before this had happened, Huckleberry Finn was not happy that he had soo much money, so he traded ALL of the money to a banker for 1 dollar. ARE YOU KIDDING? No, well later, he was glad that he traded his money, or else his father would have taken it all away...
Huckleberry Finn was later kidnapped by his father and was whipped on a daily basis. Huckleberry Finn then escaped to an island, where he found a slave and helped him escape, which was a very foul act at the time.
Huckleberry Finn was a good person on the inside, but it rarely ever shone out. What I learned from this book, is that no matter how foul a person is brought up, there is always still a light in them.
