really liked it

What can I say: better than a 3, but not a 5. It's hard to find an American author who addresses social-economic class as well as Twain, and I'm surprised he's been solidified in the canon of American Lit for that very reason (although that's usually in the guise of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn). But The Prince and the Pauper also has its endearing moments and, in true American fashion, justice is served and the good guys win for all the right reasons in the end.
