For full disclosure, I am biased towards Twain, and though many may not like the unconventional structure or all the academic discussion surrounding the actual voice of Twain, I enjoyed it tremendously. His voice was there in the text. It was as one poster pointed out like sitting down with him and having a conversation. It flowed from one item to the next as he wished it to often with acute insight into historical figures he had dined with or met and his wide travels. I look forward to what comes next whenever the next 2 volumes appear. I have marked my book with interesting passages to go back to like visiting that sardonic uncle with cigar smoke wafting around his hair.
