really liked it

I could write a long review of this amazing and shocking book. Mark like I've never seen him before; the Mark I always wanted to hear more from and did not find in his stories of mischievous childhoods in the Mississippi. But i won't write that long review, instead, i will sub it up in the following sentence: Man is a mistake. The human race, basically, is the most horrible species that ever dwelled this earth. We kill, torture, pass judgment, discriminate, and do the worst things possible with the excuse that we are superior, which is obviously a very wrong statement.
But whose fault is it that we're so horrible? is it our fault, or that of our Creator? Our Father in heaven, who hasn't spared us all the pains possible, that even an erring human father would not want his children to go through. Are we God's mistake? or merely his toy? Twain will tell you all about it, through the narration of Satan, Eve, and many others including himself.
