Huck is the narrator of the story and for the most part is honest to us the readers He dreads the rules and conformities of society such as religion school and anything else that will eventually make him civilized A big debate surrounds Huck on whether he changes or not throughout the novel Huck in the beginning seems very set in the souths anti-black ways however Huck states that he will go to hell to keep Jim out of slavery At this point it seems like he does change however at the end of the book Huck plays yet another practical joke on Jim and seems as though any change was temporary Huck in the book has little sense of humor which is ironic considering the book is satirical Twain has also been criticized about Hucks character in that it seems as though Huck knows to much for his age In one of the movies Huck was about 17 in another he was about 8 I figure from the book that Huck is probably around 12 maybe 13 Other traits of Huck show that he is sensible trustworthy tricky deceiving realist yet imaginative Jim starts off the book as the Widow Watsons slave however because she is going to sell Jim off he decides to run away In an ironic twist Jim meets Huck Finn who Jim is charged with murdering Twain has been criticize for making Jim to stereotypical in the sense that Jim is easily tricked by Tom and Huck Jim is extremely superstitious very dependable very trusting of Huck strong and hopeful Tom Sawyer is Hucks best friend Tom is very chivalrous with many romantic ideals however Tom has conformed to society Tom has a large influence on Huck as can be seen in most of the practical jokes that are played on Jim In comparison to Huck Tom is the Idealist while Huck is the realist Pap is Hucks usually drunk
