it was amazing
bookshelves: humor, classics, favorites

This was not just "funny". It was a "laugh til you cry and someone comes in to see what's wrong with you" funny. But then I read excerpts to my husband and he didn't laugh at all, so maybe it's just my kind of humor. Written as Twain's idea of what Adam and Eve must have thought of each other. I laughed as I read the beginning and middle. Then I cried at the sweet tender ending (supposedly a tribute to his own beloved wife.) A quick read, it took me about an hour to read but only because I kept re-reading the funniest parts. I am not very generous with my 5 star ratings, but this one will definitely go on my "favorites" list.
