Home Mark Twain The Mysterious Stranger, and Other Stories. It seemed a strange speech, in the circumstances, but we barely noticedthat, we were so shocked and grieved at the wanton murder he hadcommitted-for murder it was, that was its true name, and it was withoutpalliation or excuse, for the men had not wronged him in any way. Itmade us miserable, for we loved him, and had thought him so noble and sobeautiful and gracious, and had honestly believed he was an angel; andto have him do this cruel thing-ah, it lowered him so, and we had hadsuch pride in him.

LibriVox recording of The Mysterious Stranger and Other Stories, by Mark Twain. Read by Ted Delorme  . Here's a Mark Twain story that's very unlike those he became famous for, but when I read it back in Catholic high school, it left a deep impression. It concerns the deeply religious residents of a small village in Austria during the late sixteenth century, and what happened to several of them when a strange man began to visit their insulated homeland.

THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER by Mark Twain Chapter 1 It was in 1590-winter. Austria was far away from the world, and asleep; it was still the Middle Ages in Austria, and promised to remain so forever. the shade to rest and smoke and talk over these strange things, for they were in our minds yet, and impressing us. But we couldn't smoke, because we had been heedless and left our flint and steel behind.

I do not need to open a book; I take the whole of its contents into my mind at a single glance, through the cover; and in a million years I could not forget a single word of it, or its place in the volume. Nothing goes on in the skull of man, bird, fish, insect, or other creature which can be hidden from me. I pierce the learned man’s brain with a single glance, and the treasures which cost him threescore years to accumulate are mine; he can forget, and he does forget, but I retain. Now, then, I perceive by your thoughts that you are understanding me fairly well.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by the pen name Mark Twain, was an American humorist, satirist, lecturer and writer. Twain is most noted for his novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885). He is also known for his quotations. His first important work, The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County, was published in 1865. His next publication was The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, which drew on his youth in Hannibal. The character of Tom Sawyer was modeled on twain as a child, with traces of two schoolmates, John Briggs and Will Bowen. His next major published work, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, solidified him as a noteworthy American writer. Some have called it the first Great American Novel. Finn was an offshoot from Tom Sawyer and proved to have a more serious tone than its predecessor. The main premise behind Huckleberry Finn is the young boy's belief in the right thing to do even though the majority of society believes that it was wrong.

This edition of this book, with the green and gray cover, published by Classic Books International, is NOT the same version as the Kindle edition it is linked to. Buy the copy that has the cream and green cover and is published by the University of California Press, the cover shown in the Kindle edition of the book. This is an egregious mistake on the part of the Amazon site. The two versions are very different, with many different characters and a different setting.I told a help desk person 2 months ago but this has not yet been remedied. DO NOT BUY THIS EDITION IF YOU WANT TO READ THE AUTHORIZED VERSION OF THIS BOOK!

Stupid Amazon puts the reviews of a bunch of different editions all on one reviews page. So to be clear about the edition i'm reviewing, it's the $3.99 paperback with a red rectangular center with the swirlies around it. I like it a lot. The text is just as I remember it. The print is large enough and easy on the eyes. It is basically just 'The Mysterious Stranger' with a few 2 page stories tacked on in the end. I bought this for a friend and wanted to make sure the print wasn't tiny and uncomfortable to read, and it wasn't. It's a nice little book, a sturdy largish paperback that is well worth the 3.99. As for the story itself - utterly engaging and profound. Don't miss it.

Mark Twain at his best and that's better than almost anybody. I love his paragraph on the god myth at the end of the mysterious stranger which depicts the silliness of the creator story. His common sense and humour are outstanding in this story as it always is and it was a joy to read.

Most definitely one of my all-time favorite books! Reading this work is like floating down a lazy river trailing your fingers in the water. Its pithy stuff this particular story, but told with such ease and sure-footedness, it requires no effort from the reader. How can that be?

What a pleasure to read. I have no doubt but that I will revisit this story periodically throughout my lifetime. Thank you, Samuel Clemens!
Silver Globol
Twain's book, written late in life, reveals his cynicism about society and humanity. No. 44 is also a mind-bender because some of the concepts it explores are very complex. It's rather different from his more famous works; if you're looking for something like Adventures of Tom Sawyer or Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, this book may not be for you. Although No. 44 does include some of Twain's trademark humor, it's also quite dark. I found myself feeling rather depressed at the end of this novel, but I did enjoy certain instances of Twain's wit--such as his comments about cats. Overall, No. 44 gives you an interesting glimpse into Twain's mind. Just remember that it's dark in there!
Doomblade
Gerat stories, specially the third one. Several interesting ideas in all of them and great quotes from Twain. Hihgly recommended.
Dishadel
This edition restores the text to a more faithful representation of Twain's actual text and the result is darker, far more metaphysical version of the novel than Albert Bigelow Paine's spurious edition. This is the one to get!
If you only think of Tom Sawyer when you think of Mark Twain...you've not read the Mysterious Stranger. Deep, dark and metaphysical.
