An easy read, and an enjoyable story that imagines an incident in 1850s Kansas, where Mark Twain won a black slave in a poker game, freed him, & partnered with him as a boxer. Both Twain & the black boxer are very sympathetic characters, but there's also an evil black character. All in all, while it's an easy, enjoyable read, it's not really a very good book. The characters are--pun partly intended--too black & white; it's too preachy about race relations & the evil consequences ...more

Mark Twain'in yaşamında dönüm noktası olan bir olayın, Thomas Hauser tarafından kurmaca anlatısı. Yazar, Mark Twain gibi yazmaya çalışarak Bones ile karşılaşmasını, kölelik düzenini, insanların dostluk ve ihanet hikayelerini etkili bir dille anlatmayı başarmış. Beğendim.

This was a quick, entertaining read. Having just visited Hannibal, Mo, I was interested in reading something about Mark Twain. This author definitely has Mark Twain's literary
style down.

Very enjoyable, I could almost hear Hal Holbrook (playing his role as Mark Twain) narrating the story. Thomas Hauser has done his research and has Samual Clemens' literary style down.
