There were some really great parts - some very funny (the French/English letter about the bar of soap) and some very moving parts as well. I loved and was surprised that Twain always refers to Jesus as "the Savior". It was interesting to note how many trademarks of American tourists were true even in Twain's day. I laughed and was amused, but I struggled a lot with the narrator. The narrator was excellent, but he read in the most obnoxiously self-satisfied way that drove me insane! Nevertheless, he hit all the irony dead on. Until I read this one, I'd no idea it was a travel log. I thought it was a novel. Surprise!
