Hilarious and very insightful. Mark Twain brilliantly explores what it could have been like for two very different people to discover the odd world around them. He does a great job at poking fun at the difference in men and women's perspectives. For example, when a baby is introduced to their world Adam thinks that it is a furless bear cub. He knows its not a fish because when he put it in a pond it just sank until Eve dived in to get it. Adam is also bewildered by Eve's compulsion to name everything that she sees. He does not think that this is necessary and she explains that she does it to protect Adam from the embarrassment of not being very good at naming things. I definitely recommend it!
