Meet the Author

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his pseudonym Mark Twain, was an American writer and humorist. Apprenticed to a printer, Twain became an expert typesetter and riverboat pilot before trying his hand at goldmining, which was unsuccessful. Twain then became a journalist, writing a series of successful short stories. Twain's fame as a writer was firmly established by the 1876 publication of THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER, and THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN in 1884. When Twain died in 1910 he was hailed as the "greatest American humorist of his age." William Faulkner later wrote that he was "the father of American literature."

    A real treat

    What a treat this book was! I'm surprised that I wasn't made to read it back in junior high or high school, when I undoubtedly wouldn't have enjoyed it nearly as much. It's not nearly as in-depth a tale as Tom Sawyer or Huck Finn, but nevertheless it's an enjoyable, light read about three friends going on an amazing journey. There are strong elements of steampunk in this, which is doubly wonderful because it was actually written during that very same period. The best part of all are the stories, discussions, and arguments between Tom, Huck, and Jim over the course of their travels.

    Don't bother

    Had a few amusing episodes, but had feeling Mr Twain was trying to get a little extra mileage out old Tom, Huck and Jim without putting in the effort. Really just a wandering book with nothing to tell, but I'll give it two stars just because it's Twain.
