Marx and Smiley agree on one point: by the end of the book, “[m]ost of those traits which made [Huck] so appealing as a hero now disappear.” And that may be their main beef with Twain’s choice of ending.

When Jim is sold into slavery and Huck goes to save him, we naturally worry for them. Mark Twain has tricked us by making us "unindicted co-conspirators." We no longer observe the narrative as outsiders we, like Huck and Jim, DO NOT enter the the world of the slave owning South, which is sometimes cruel and always over burdened with rules. The three of us enter the imagination of Tom Sawyer, which is sometimes cruel and always over burdened with rules. Huck and Jim comply because they don't believe they have a choice, although both lobby for relaxation of the rules. The pain and rage we feel plowing through the ending has a sort of parity with the pain and rage Huck and Jim experience in a society that does not value their personhood. It is the Deus Ex Machina ending of the convenient deaths stops the storyline cold.

The new judge is livid at this betrayal of his trust and comments that the only way to reform Pap is with a shotgun.
