Most Helpful Customer Reviews
It isn't my favorite Twain story, but TMTCH is a great little yarn about greed and hypocrisy. Essentially the story revolves around a town of people with a reputation for virtue, but whose virtue has never really been tested. When a stranger delivers the test, all bets are off. Throughout, Twain pulls no punches as he harpoons the people of the town and through them the values of American society.
