About the Author

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

Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He 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. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.

He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.

May be wonderful, but be warned, this is not the print version.

This is a beautiful autobiography which at times is also extremely sad, painfully funny, and ultimately makes you glad that you are alive and that there were people on this world like Mark Twain. Highly recommended.

This is a true pleasure to read. In terms of wit and wisdom, Mark Twain has no parallel, even 100 years after his death. A great book for young and old alike, his life serves as a model for how a life should be lived.

After reading Tom Sawyer's adventures during xmas, I recommended my two boys 12 and 15, to read the author's autobiography. I downloaded this on their nooks (this is quite a reasonably priced version so could afford to buy two) and they really enjoyed putting things into perspective and he is a great author!

Excellent autobiography by a true American original

There's no indication that the Peale biography of Twain is just 'dropped' into what appears to be the middle of the autobiography, and the autobiography ended at that point (I don't have the standard text version to compare with at this time). The "Special Nook Enabled Features" may include a non-working Table of Contents, non-adjustable text size, and some really strange pagination from about page 400 on. The error messages associated with reading (also from page 400 on) may be from my Nook, but they don't occur with other Nook books. I may try a different version of the Autobiography, without the 'Special Nook Enabled Features'; I can't, in good conscience, recommend this one.

So, call me confused but as another poster noted, the font is set to something one would expect in a nursing home for the blind and cannot be adjusted. I've run into multiple problems with the next page taking too long to load or the same page repeating over and over. Granted I only have the 3400 pages offered with the "sample" but I use the sample to determine whether I want to purchase the book and after trying to navigate this one the answer is a resounding NO. Additionally I'm still trying to figure out what exactly the special Nook features are unless they are referring to the unchangeable font, useless table of contents and non-working content search. GREAT cover though...?

This is a poor reproduction. The book is poorly programmed and has several reader bugs.

...both of the author and his departed daughter, from whom he quotes often. As this is a scan and not a reproduction, it is often difficult to tell which is the author and which is the quote. There are a few scanning errors. You'd think they could hire someone to clean these scans up. If you love Sam Clemens, you'll love this.

Twain's life as seen by himself, his daughter, and his biographer. Not only do you get the story of Twain, but also the stories of the people who inspired many of his characters.

I enjoyed the sections that Mark Twain wrote. His biographer was bland in his writing, but Twain gave us a piece of his soul as he told of his family and how he felt along the way.
