Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was lauded as the "greatest humorist this country has produced", and William Faulkner called him "the father of American literature". His novels include The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), the latter often called "The Great American Novel".

To understand Mark Twain as an author, it is first required to understand him as a man. His experience with the . His experience with the Mississippi River provides a substantial amount of biographical information, chronicling his time as a steamboat pilot in his youth. Here, Samuel Clemons devised his pen name, Mark Twain, being the oft-heard call of the ship’s leadsman, signaling that the water below was at least 12 feet deep and safe to cross. A central theme throughout the book is Twain’s preoccupation with the imposition of the modern world on history, whereby petty profiteering from historical significance is seen as wasteful and disgruntling, especially in the author’s visit to Italy.

While there's nothing new here that the conscientious Twain reader has not seen before, this book does pull together several little-known pieces with a bias toward skullduggery & detection that seldom come up when Twain's major writings are discussed. Their neglect doesn't make these works any less worthy than The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer or the Connecticut Yankee ...

This book makes these little-read pieces available in one place for fans of the picaresque & mysterious. That alone is enough reason for the Twain reader to pick this book up. If that wasn't the case & the reader was new to Twain this wouldn't be a bad place to begin. For classic material & some of us may remember what Sam said about classics being praised & unread, it's fun stuff to read. As an introduction to Twain, these pieces are painless, light & like salted peanuts they leave the reader wishing the book was just a little longer.

The pieces are well presented. The illustrations are evocative in an early Creepy Magazine sort of way. The book is unusually well made & a keeper.

My one caveat was that despite Amazon's excellent wrapping, my copy arrived dented with one corner dog-eared, but that was more a problem of delivery than production.

The book is very well-done, and inviting to read. The content is not so much,
I love Twain, but his usual absurdities and exaggerations don't fit well in the mystery genre. I like the book because it is Twain, but do not highly recommend it for 'mystery' content.
Uris
An interesting read but not extremely mind boggling.
Exellent

I received another Ebook to review. This time it is Mark Twain's Tales of Mystery.

As a huge fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's works of Mystery and Edger Allen Poe's works as well, I was very excited to read this work.

Yet as I got into the first chapter I found myself bogged down by the `old' style writing and language that was incorporated. I understand the philosophy was that Huck Finn was writing the book, and they the phonetic spellings and other nuances; yet I had a tough time getting beyond that and into the meat of the story... I finally felt that I was making it through this and the vendor had only supplied 20 pages of the book and thus cut the reviewer off. Talk about a cliff hanger.

So the ultimate question I ask myself is: Was this cliff hanger enough to make me run out and buy this book so as to finish? Or was it enough to turn me off on the title?

Unfortunately I have to honestly say it was the later. It took too long to get into the story and I really find myself not wanting to start again to get into the title...

If you are a fan of Mark Twain and a fan of mystery do not let my review deter you. I hope you will go out and purchase this, I simply am not a fan of the style of writing that this work portrayed. To each their own.

Here is what the Vendor had to say about the work:

Sherlock Holmes in America? Mark Twain a character in his own stories? Can it be true?
