In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer there is a lot of conversation between the characters. The characters speak a certain way because of the time period the story took place in. The dialogue in this story tells a lot about the plot and what characters were like. "Spare the rod and spile the child..." - Aunt Polly (pg.8) "I reckon I ain't dressed fitten for a pirate. But I ain't got but these." - Huck (pg. 85) Muff Potter vs. St. Petersburg townspeople
The townspeople of St. Petersburg, Missouri accused Muff Potter of murdering Doctor Robinson. They didn't have enough evidence to prove him guilty but because they saw his knife at the graveyard, they said he did it. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is a terrific book! This book takes places in St. Petersburg, Missouri around the 1840s. The main character is Tom Sawyer who is a mischievous, and imaginative young boy. This is a book that you really don't want to put down! Mark Twain describes the characters of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer very well so you can really get a feel for what they are like. I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a very well written book.
