Tom Sawyer Abroad is a novel by Mark Twain published in 1894. It features Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn in a parody of adventure stories like those of Jules Verne.
In the story, Tom, Huck, and Jim set sail to Africa in a futuristic hot air balloon, where they survive encounters with lions, robbers, and fleas to see some of the world's greatest wonders, including the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Like Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, Detective, the story is told using the first-person narrative voice of Huck Finn. It is a sequel, set in the time following the title story of the Tom Sawyer series.

CHAPTER I. TOM SEEKS NEW ADVENTURES
Do you reckon Tom Sawyer was satisfied after all them adventures? I mean the adventures we had down the river, and the time we set the darky Jim free and Tom got shot in the leg. No, he wasn’t. It only just p’isoned him for more. That was all the effect it had. You see, when we three came back up the river in glory, as you may say, from that long travel, and the village received us with a torchlight procession and speeches, and everybody hurrah’d and shouted, it made us heroes, and that was what Tom Sawyer had always been hankering to be.
For a while he was satisfied. Everybody made much of him, and he tilted up his nose and stepped around the town as though he owned it. Some called him Tom Sawyer the Traveler, and that just swelled him up fit to bust. You see he laid over me and Jim considerable, because we only went down the river on a raft and came back by the steamboat, but Tom went by the steamboat both ways. The boys envied me and Jim a good deal, but land! they just knuckled to the dirt before TOM.
Well, I don’t know; maybe he might have been satisfied if it hadn’t been for old Nat Parsons, which was postmaster, and powerful long and slim, and kind o’ good-hearted and silly, and bald-headed, on account of his age, and about the talkiest old cretur I ever see. For as much as thirty years he’d been the only man in the village that had a reputation—I mean a reputation for being a traveler, and of course he was mortal proud of it, and it was reckoned that in the course of that thirty years he had told about that journey over a million times and enjoyed it every time. And now comes along a boy not quite fifteen, and sets everybody admiring and gawking over his travels, and it just give the poor old man the high strikes. It made him sick to listen to Tom, and to hear the people say “My land!” “Did you ever!” “My goodness sakes alive!” and all such things; but he couldn’t pull away from it, any more than a fly that’s got its hind leg fast in the molasses. And always when Tom come to a rest, the poor old cretur would chip in on his same old travels and work them for all they were worth; but they were pretty faded, and didn’t go for much, and it was pitiful to see. And then Tom would take another innings, and then the old man again—and so on, and so on, for an hour and more, each trying to beat out the other.
You see, Parsons’ travels happened like this: When he first got to be postmaster and was green in the business, there come a letter for somebody he didn’t know, and there wasn’t any such person in the village. Well, he didn’t know what to do, nor how to act, and there the letter stayed and stayed, week in and week out, till the bare sight of it gave him a conniption. The postage wasn’t paid on it, and that was another thing to worry about. There wasn’t any way to collect that ten cents, and he reckon’d the gov’ment would hold him responsible for it and maybe turn him out besides, when they found he hadn’t collected it. Well, at last he couldn’t stand it any longer.

Mehr über den Autor

Mark Twain (1835-1910) hat sein Handwerk von der Pike auf gelernt. Nach dem Tod seines Vaters machte er eine Ausbildung zum Schriftsetzer und arbeitete in vielen Städten der USA als Drucker und Journalist. Auch auf einem Mississippidampfer war Mark Twain beschäftigt, außerdem wurde er Soldat bei den Konföderierten und begab sich sogar auf Silbersuche. Später führten ihn seine Reisen bis nach Europa. 1864 gelang ihm mit "Jumping-Frog" ("Der berühmte Springfrosch von Calaveras County") der literarische Durchbruch. Humor und Satire gehören zu den Markenzeichen des weltbekannten amerikanischen Schriftstellers, dessen berühmtestes Buch wohl "Die Abenteuer des Huckleberry Finn" (1884) ist. Mark Twains Alterswerk dagegen ist von einer eher pessimistischen Grundhaltung geprägt.

If you really want to sink your teeth into three of Mark Twain's greatest characters, read this book. I actually prefer it over Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Twain went much deeper in defining the characters; Tom thinks he knows everything and loves to argue, Huck takes everything literally and loves to argue back, and Jim is well. . . Jim! I will say this: If anyone has ever found the portrayal of Jim offensive, it's no different here, but I'm assuming that if you're considering reading this, you must have enjoyed the other two books. So, what are you waiting for, read it!

3.0 von 5 Sternen JUVENILE ARGONAUTS OVER THE SAHARA 20. April 1998
Von Plume45 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book picks up right after the hullaballo has died down from Tom and Huck's triumphal return. Tom kinda craves notoriety as he competes for the unofficial title of Hannibal's First Traveler. Then Tom, Huck and Jim are accidentally kidnapped by a mad inventor and go sailing off in a hot-air balloon. They eventually find themselves adrift over the Atlantic Ocean but when they sight land, it is not Europe! This book is told with youthful zest and slangy vocabulary by an admiring Huck in the first person, so that he can praise Tom's leadership skills and powers of argument!
The three unintentional argonauts finally realize that they are sailing over the Sahara Desert, where they have a variety of adventures, interspersed with juvenile deductions and debates. Their adventures are right out of Arabian Nights: no magic lamp or genies, but caravans, lions, mirages, warring Bedouin tribes, devastating sand storms! All interspersed with Tawin's wry humor as he slips in some snide remarks about more serious social issues (spoken through the mouths of babes). Not much of a plot, but plenty of lively dialogue as the boys try to argue using logic and indulge in youthful dreams of sudden fortune. A fun read with sly social criticism. But really, Mark Twain, Tigers--in Africa???

4.0 von 5 Sternen A real treat 2. März 2012
Von Ian T. Healy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What a treat this book was! I'm surprised that I wasn't made to read it back in junior high or high school, when I undoubtedly wouldn't have enjoyed it nearly as much. It's not nearly as in-depth a tale as Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn, but nevertheless it's an enjoyable, light read about three friends going on an amazing journey. There are strong elements of steampunk in this, which is doubly wonderful because it was actually written during that very same period. The best part of all are the stories, discussions, and arguments between Tom, Huck, and Jim over the course of their travels.

I'm glad I found out about this book! I never realized it was ever wrtitten until recently! It is shorter, but a great sequel to what happens to Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and Jim after the conclusion of, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."
