Mark Twain comedy at its best

I have read this book 3 times over the years. The first time it literally had me laughing out loud as I read it on my lunch hours in the company bresk room. It is a hilarious tale of Twains travel adventure by stage coach from the Mississippi to Californias gold fields ...
I have read this book 3 times over the years. The first time it literally had me laughing out loud as I read it on my lunch hours in the company bresk room. It is a hilarious tale of Twains travel adventure by stage coach from the Mississippi to Californias gold fields with a unique historical perspective of the California gold rush that you wont find any where else. Much more entertaining than his other "travel" books.

After reading the first eight chapters of this book I saw it going nowhere--I was right. To say the least, the book was boring. The thorough descriptions of each character and object in this book made reading it monotonous. This book was no more than a young boy's journal that had no purpose or moral. Honestly, I don't understand why it got published.

    Mixed feelings

    The story is a wonderful, not well known time in Mark Twain's life. Those who love the writings of this author, would truly enjoy this chapter of his life - before he changed his name. However, the book did not arrive as pictured here. There was no jacket included with the book so it was a little underwhelming when given as a gift. No time to investigate or do anything about it as it was purachsed as a Christmas gift.

    Decently Dry

    It was rather dry however, I could not say that anything written by Mark Twain was not remarkable. Overall, it is a decent effort.
