Tom Sawyer Abroad

Mark Twain

Book Overview: 

Tom Sawyer Abroad is a novel by Mark Twain. It features Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in a parody of Jules Verne-esque adventure stories. In the story, Tom, Huck, and Jim set sail to Africa in a futuristic hot air balloon, where they survive encounters with lions, robbers, and fleas to see some of the world’s greatest wonders, including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, Detective, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Ain't no use, Mars Tom; he got you DIS time, sho'!" He slapped his leg again, and says, "My LAN', but it was smart one!"

I never felt so good in my life; and yet I didn't know I was saying anything much till it was out. I was just mooning along, perfectly careless, and not expecting anything was going to happen, and never THINKING of such a thing at all, when, all of a sudden, out it came. Why, it was just as much a surprise to me as it was to any of them. It was just the same way it is when a person is munching along on a hunk of corn-pone, and not thinking about anything, and all of a sudden bites into a di'mond. Now all that HE knows first off is that it's some kind of gravel he's bit into; but he don't find out it's a di'mond till he gits it out and brushes off the sand and crumbs and one thing or another, and has a look at it, and then he's surprised and glad—yes, and proud too; though when you come to look the thing straight in the eye, he ain't en. . . Read More

Tom Sawyer Abroad chronicles the adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and Jim in Africa in a hot air balloon. While I loved The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn this wasn't as funny. I did like it but I did not love it.

A weak plot and not as enjoyable but not ter

Away from social institutions, Tom is as much know-it-all as subversive.

Básicamente consiste en contar una historia de Sawyer, Huck Finn y Jim en África. Los tres se montan en un globo al más puro estilo aeronave de FF y van al Sáhara y Egipto.

El libro está bien, es entretenido, pero no está al nivel de los dos anteriores y ese es su mayor problema. Tom es un personaje

Not quite as good as the original books. In fact, I had to check and recheck to make sure that the same author actually wrote this book. It's that much of a departure.

If Tom Sawyer Detective is to the original Tom/Huck books what Bad News Bears Go to Japan was to the original, then Tom Sawyer is the Mark Twain equivalent of Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol.

Tom, Huck, and the slave Jim get kidnapped by a mad scientist and taken to Africa on a tricked-out airsh

When I was growing up, we had a 3-books-in-1-volume set of Tom Sawyer tales. The first one was the classic The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I read it, laughed myself silly over some of the classic scenes, like Tom whitewashing the fence and feeding the cat his medicine, and started in on the two sequel

It was a visit to old friends Tom, Huck and Jim. This time three of them by accident fly to Africa in an extraordinary balloon. I love "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", but this one is nothing compared to them. Pointless book, in my opinion. It felt like imitat

Add all of the above together and you have the third installment of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn adventures. The trio I mentioned (and showed) above ended up on a hot air balloon which brought them to Northern Africa deserts. It is a good book.

It says this was written by Huck Finn, but I have my doubts. For the most part, it sounded more like huckster than huckleberry. Huck, Tom and Jim take a balloon ride across the Atlantic, through the Sahara, and to Egypt, and basically nothing happens. Oh, there's some carnage along the way, but it's
