Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book was a big dissapointment. It was extremely repetitive. All the information and commentary could have easily been condensed to 50 pages. As a result, I found it to be a very boring read. The main body of the book is nothing more than Twain bashing the religion and its founder, which it seems was fueled by personal tragedies in Twains life. It was very pessimistic and one-sided. However, I found Appendix D to be very insightful. It conveys a deeply spiritual side of Twain. I found his thoughts on prayer to be deeply moving, and this was the only reason I gave it three stars.
