The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

In chapters 32-43 of huck finn, critics have complained that the rescue at Phelps farm is rife with coincidence and is overall problematic to the rest of the work. What do you see the problems this section presents to readers?

I'm having issues on this part of the question

The rescue is bizarre and difficult to accept, even within the context of the novel. I think, however, that Twain was trying to point out Tom Sawyer's character flaws as opposed to Huck's more altruistic nature. Tom was only interested in his convoluted plan to give himself adventure and glory. Huck just wanted to save Jim.
