Twain was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, which later provided the setting for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, and he spent time as a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before finding fame as a writer.

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court 3.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 226 reviews.

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court is a superb book and I highly recommend you check it out, so you may be wondering why I am reviewing this as one star only. This version of the nook book is busted, in the middle of chapter 39 (XXXIX) it cuts to an entirely different book! If this is what Barnes and Nobles is going to let happen to the nook this device will fail horribly.

Too many pages are missing or unreadable to even follow the story.

This is a great book... when it's more than three pages of the book! Seriously, this is seven pages of unreadable BS. Thanks for taking up storage space, ripoff! I'd give it zero if I could.

Entire book consisted of 7 pages, beginning on page 304 of the original book, followed by 305, 384, and then the End.

This version is part of Google's initiative to digitize books. It clearly has been scanned and had OCR (optical character recognition) run to convert to digital text, with NO PROOFING of the scan, leaving numerous incorrect characters - typically several words per page with errors. Very distracting to read.

Would love to read this sometime, but not this way.

There are just too many spelling mistakes in this version. I quit after only 2 pages. Hopefully you can find a better copy than this one.

There are 2 actual pages of almost unreadable words. Whole story is not here.

Plodded through this ebook. Wanted to read it because it was a classic but in finishing it, I've decided I'm not a big fan of social commentaries. Definitely had several humorous moments though and witty one-liners.

How about a refund?

If you are too full of yourself, or consider yourself of nobility, this book will give you an idea of Mark Twain's feeling about people like that. You have to not be too thin-skinned as he only thinly disguises his feelings. But the story is classic and a fun read as long as you recognize what Mark Twain is doing. A lot stretches the imagination, but in some cases that exercise is a good thing. It was not meant to be taken literally, since the premise is not actually possible, but is one man's opinion of what seemed to be wrong with the world. It's dressed in medieval garb, and a fun read. Don't miss this because of what others said - try it for yourself, and persevere through the entire book.

Hopefully this review is tied to the right file - the one with a portrait of Mark Twain.

This book was ok. There were a bunch of typos which made it annoying. Some parts were exciting and others were just plain boring, but what really bothered me though is the way the author critisizes the Church!!! What he says is simply NOT true and the reader should not believe it. -someone who knows what she's talking about
