The Mysterious Stranger and Other Stories by Mark Twain
Rate this book
Clear rating
If this book contained only The Mysterious Stranger, I'd give it two stars. My exposure to Twain before this was limited to the classics we read in school as kids. While there were some stories I enjoyed, there was a strong thread of what, to me at l ...more

I had no idea this was a sequel when I read it, but I'm not sure knowing that would've changed my experience of reading it. As the three stars reflect, I didn't dislike it, but it didn't grab me either. I didn't find the characters particularly engag ...more
