Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This 1892 novel is one of Twain's least-read works for a reason: a chaotic farce resurrected from a failed play, it simply doesn't read well in print. This first-ever audio recording of the title, however, is a revelation, showing the degree of difference a good audio production can make. Robustly narrated by veteran actor/Twain interpreter Richard Henzel (the radio DJ of Groundhog Day), its dialog-heavy pages spring to life, transforming hesitant chuckles to belly laughs as the irrepressible "Colonel" Sellers presses his claims to an English earldom. A real enhancement to Henzel's growing library of Twain recordings (; an essential acquisition.—R. Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA
