What a beautiful love story! Told with Twain's usual humor, he still shows the reader (or listener, in my case) the great love story - that did not immediately happen - for our first humans.

With a forward and extras read by Walter Cronkite and Mandy Patinkin giving voice to Adam and Betty Buckley as Eve, the story of our first ancestors quickly takes shape. From fear at first meeting to arguments over naming rights all the way to the end, Twain creates the first love story with wit and sadness.

For me, one of the most beautiful parts of the story was the end, Adam states, "Wherever she was, there was Eden." If ever a more romantic phrase was written, I haven't seen it.
