Zero Stars If Possible
I don't understand what is so good about this waste of trees. This is a badly written peice of work. It seems that Mark Twain has a problem with staying in a specific view (third person to first vice versa). His verb tenses always seem to be conflicting each other and he likes to jump events so much that it is plain frustrating by the time you get to the actors. Another annoying thing that Twain does that does not please much, is his ignorant way of writing someone's dialogue into their speech. It was so annoying that I just skipped all of his speech. In much better writings then Twains, they tell you the region from which his accents from and then continues to write normal dialogue. When they do that, then your imagination does the job and forming what the accent sounds like. I believe that Twain was not a good writer, but just a rebellious one for his language. And everyone knows from material today, the more contriversial it is, the more popular it will be. I think we need to quit idiolizing him in the schools, he was NOT that good of a writer. There were and are better writers. Edgar Alan Poe, for the earlier date, and Richard Matheson for a later date. And of course the God of the Typewriter, Stephen King.
