In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Huck Finn is a very complex and thought-provoking young boy Born into the lower level of white society this thirteen-year-old boy goes through a great change in the story Through the course of this narrative Huck will create himself no less willfully than anyone else and will do so in ways that come to seem no more self-justifiable Mitchell 84 Huckleberry Finn makes a transition from that of a young nave boy to that of a man through his experiences with the escaped slave Jim down the Mississippi River As we are first introduced to Huckleberry Finn we see truly how he is still young He is continuously teaming up with his best friend Tom Sawyer pulling pranks on Jim and engaging in imaginary gangs Hucks reason for joining Tom in other words is that he is lonely and frightened that he wants distraction companionship friendship-ultimately of course love Bell 51 In these childish games the immature children would pretend to stop stagecoaches and carriages on the road with masks on and kill the people and take their watches and money Tom and the gang of course are completely unrealistic about the crimes they propose to commit and blissfully unaware that crime as gilded by the popular romances is morally wrong Adams 44 These games based off what was pieced together from novels Tom had read demonstrated the young boys lack of maturity Again and again to the dismay of serious readers Huck seems to accept Toms values Bell 51 Huck must conform to Toms ritualistic and childish ways early on but later in the story we view the more practical and quick thinking Huck Finn that gets them he and Jim out of unfavorable situations In this opening setting we view only one side of Huck one of immaturity mainly dominated by Tom Sawyer The theme of the book as we have hinted is the same as that
