    Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (often shortened to Huck Finn) is a novel written by Mark Twain and published in 1884. It is commonly regarded one of the Great American Novels, and is one of the first major American novels written in the vernacular, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, best friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels.

    The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. By satirizing a Southern antebellum society that was already anachronistic at the time of its publication, the book is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey of Huck and his friend Jim, a runaway slave, down the Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring images of escape and freedom in all of American literature.

    For Jim, the river will take him to “freedom” in the legal sense. For Huck, the river carries him away from his frustrated life in St. Petersburg. Prior to hitting the rapids, Huck feels confined – both by both society (which, figuratively, kept Huck imprisoned by its restrictive rules) and by Pap (who, literally, kept Huck locked up).

    You can literally determine this answer by reading the first page alone... Huck uses 'I' and is the narrator, so it's first person. He uses past tense verbs-- said, tried, kept, etc. Huck is the narrator and he's a child, viewing the world through 'inexperienced' eyes. Therefore he's an unreliable narrator, as compared the the all-knowing omniscient narrator. Questions like this depress the hell out of me.

    I guess another one could be the part where they discovered Huck's father was dead?
