Throughout the book The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Jim helps Huck develop greater changes. Huckleberry learns multiple lessons such as growing into better and trustworthy friend. Throughout the novel Jim helped Huck see the different side of life and how everyone grows in different surroundings. Eventually both Huckleberry and Jim grew more mature and wanted the best life for one another. Huck finds out a new identity about the world during the book.
During the book, Huckleberry Finn has not experienced what life really was or what you could possibly encounter during times that just come out of anything. Jim is that someone you could call peculiar or unexpected. When Huck and Jim were with each other on the island and going down river together, Huck primarily was giving orders to Jim. The motive why Huck was giving orders was because that was the environment he grown up around. As times moves forward Huck starts to realize how niggers have been treated throughout life and began to respect him more by who Jim is on the inside.
When Huck was debating on whether to tell Mary that Jim was with him, “It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a nigger; but I done it, and I warn’t ever sorry for it afterwards, neither. I didn’t do him no more mean tricks, and I wouldn’t done that one if I’d a knowed it would make him feel that way,” page 89. Huck was mortified of what was going to happen if he told Miss Watson, but he overcame it well.
