I haven't read much Mark Twain, but every few years I start to feel a little guilty for not reading more classics... So I decided to try this one. It was an interesting book-the basic plot is that a man (a very handy man) from the 19th century goes back in time to King Arthur's court and tries to "modernize" that world. A lot of the book dragged-this is long. But, there were some amazing scenes about class and life at that time (I have no idea if those scenes were accurate or not) that made the book worth reading. It also made me interested in reading some more, hopefully lighter, Twain.
