The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Mark Twain, The adventures of Tom Sawyer, Burlington Books


Portada The Adventures of Tom SawyerSUMMARY:

Tom Sawyer is a book based on a true history. It tells the adventures of Tom, a boy who likes playing jokes on other people with his friends. He lives with his aunt Polly and his brother Sid along the Mississippi river. They are basically poor. We say that because they live without many material things. He has also many friends like Huckleberry Finn and Joe. In the book, many adventures take place, like that in which they go out to discover things on an island close to the village or when they go to the hill with Becky.


We think it´s quite an amusing novel, mainly in the passages about adventures, though we find others hard to read and even nonsense.


ASSESMENT: We give it a rating of 7/10 because any person from 10 to any age could understand it but they couldn´t if the boy/girl were younger.

RECOMMENDATION: It is a compulsory reading in Secondary Education Second Year, but you can read it if you just like the stories of old adventures in English. This book is also a bit adapted because it doesn´t tell everything. e.g All the discussions between Tom and his aunt.

De esta novela, escrita en 1876, ha habido numerosas versiones cinematográficas, la más reciente de 2012. ¡fijaos qué tirón tiene la historia de Tom! Ahora os dejo con una adaptación de ¡1917! En este caso casi se podría hablar de arqueología cinematográfica: en blanco y negro, muda, con acompañamiento musical de calidad… ¡A ver qué os parece!


Y si tenéis tiempo, entreteneos, palomitas en mano, con esta otra versión  estrenada en 1938,  en la que las travesuras, la picaresca y la nobleza del protagonista encandilan por igual a los espectadores por su candidez.
