Mark Twain is the rambunctious father of all cynics. His wry observations and biting jibes made him the first modern humorist. His sardonic sketches on everything from politicians, preachers, journalists, barbers, nagging wives, devious children, and gullible low-lifes are as hilarious and true today as they were wh

Die Erzählungen in diesesem Buch stammen aus den Zeitraum von 1863 bis 1916. Man kann sehr gut die Entwicklung Mark Twain von einem ironischem Unterhalter zu einem bitterbösen Satiriker erkennen. Am besten haben mir die Titelgeschichte "Kannibalismus im Zug", Die 1 000 000Pfund Note" und " der Mann, der Hadleyburg korrumpierte" gefallen. Als versöhnlichen Abschluss gab es das erstaunlich sanfte " Tagebuch von Adam und Eva" das mir auch sehr gut gefallen hat.
Alles in allem sehr moderne Geschichte

Recommends it for: anyone who likes ol timey talk and sarcasm
just finished, and I enjoy Twain's wit. He delivers the contrapositive of the textual meaning of his words by using the subtext alone. That's why he's a genius. And its funny too.

(Review of only "Cannibalism in the Cars")

Welp. That's democracy for you. Two against one, you die.

(I just read Cannibalism in the Cars)

Very funny story, and a bit ambiguous, in a good way.
