Chapteres 20-22:

As the group continues down the river they run into more and more unscrupulous people. Huck is growing as person as we see him contemplate the fraud and murders in a new and much more adult way.

It's funny that in the beginning of the book Huck and Tom were making up adventures and now they are falling in Huck's lap. If I were Huck, I'd want to float down the Mississippi too.

I agree with you Kelley, that Huck is contemplating things a lot more than earlier in the book.

Huck shows maturity in recognizing that the two personages are not really royalty and that he will need to try and get along with them until he and Jim can get away from them, but he shows his childishness too, in being enthralled with the 'drunkard' at the circus who was surely part of the act, but Huck believes he truly fooled the ring master. Twain paints a dark picture of the town where the group assembles to try out their acts. Everyone seems dirty, disgusting and bent on nothing but laziness except for Sherburn and his daughter. I never understood though why Sherburn got it in his head to outright shoot the 'rowdy drunk'.
