Overview

*Illustrated with dozens of pictures of the original illustrations, Twain, his life and work.
*Includes Table of Contents

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist best known for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "the Great American Novel."

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer and also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, which became very popular and brought nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.

He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker, becoming a national celebrity during his day. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he became a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

In the twilight of his life, Twain wrote more openly about religious matters, including several works about the Creation story. Eve’s Diary is written as a firsthand diary by Eve after her creation through her death, as well as Adam’s lamentations after her death. It’s believed the story was inspired by the death of Twain’s own wife.

This edition of Eve’s Diary is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of the famous writer and the story’s original illustrations.

A bit on the "know it all" side for a gifted and talented writer to say thus and so about Adam and Eve. I enjoyed the book and could not put it down until the last paragraph and period.

...even Eve would agree. But don't read it from a modern-day work, take it from Eve, who started it all - with a little help. Every woman should read this book. And if you don't cry and love your husband more at the end, appreciating him for all his god-given foibles, there is something wrong with you. Bravo to Mark Twain and his imagination.

Not as humorous perhaps as Adam's Diary, but great all the same. And if you know THE APPLE TREE you'll discover the source for "What Makes Me Love Him?" in these pages.

Do plan on lots of time on the phone, resetting and reloading your nook, then you still won't be able to read it. This ebook won't load on the Nook, and they most certainly are not going to give a refund!
