So much fun! A great read by an obviously entertaining & well-traveled author. Even if you think you've read it in the past I recommend you pick it up again!

In Twain's lifetime, this was his best selling book. It's not even close to being my personal favorite, but it's not without its moments.

This is an OCR'd book, with a scattering of typos and garbled sentences. Those are bearable, and it's almost amusing to figure out what's actually intended. BUT the book is INCOMPLETE - it just ends roughly half way through. Unacceptable.
