    Mark Twain is the best

    For pure entertainment value per page, you cannot beat Twain. These works are true classics of not only American, but ideed, all of world literature.

    Not bad

    I haven't read through everything yet (and I doubt I will ever read Tom Sawyer again), but so far this collection is pretty sweet. There are a few issues with the layout, but they're easy enough to overlook. I like having such a variety of works in such a small package.

    Convenient Collection

    Good way to own multiple books by Twain in concise, handy & inexpensive way. Enjoyed re-reading "Huckleberry Finn" for a book club. The biography's author is enamored by Twain, portraying him as a very sensitive, meek, caring kind of person. We got a different impression of Clemens a few years back when visiting Elmira, NY where the family spent many summers in the cool Catskills with the family of Olivia's sister, and their controversial home in Hartford, Connecticut. Information received on touring the home, outdoor study Mrs. Quarles built for Twain to write in while in Elmira, and museums at Elmira College's campus & one in Hartford, we felt him to be aloof, self-centered, quite egotistical. Apparently, he was quite devoted to his family, but arragant. When appearing before the English monarchy to be honored, he apparently refused to remove his hat or to bow. Still, those are observations about the author, not his works--which we still enjoy reading. Found this volume to be a good collection of his fiction.

    Yes, would recommend this based on my husband's critique.

    Bought this for my husband for his birthday because he always wanted to read Huckleberry Fin. He's now enjoying the rest of the novels even though he has read some of them. Always loved Mark Twain.

    Contains all the great Mark Twain works. However, the first boo

    Contains all the great Mark Twain works. However, the first book, The Gilded Age is not one if his best. This was written in collaboration with a second author and therefore, the story is extremely fragmented, repetitive in many places and difficult to plow through. It's as if the 2 writers wrote their own story and were unable to mesh them together smoothly. It just dragged on an on. You can definitely tell which chapters were written by Twain and which ones were not.

    There is an active table of contents which allows you to pick the books you want to read without having to read from
    page 1 through to the end. There are a few editing issues within this more than 5,000 page edition. A few missing words, etc. All in all, still a great value.
