Excellent

It's great that Twain's stories can still entertain modern audiences. This is a very quick read and worth your time. Some of the earlier parts are a bit tough with all of the Old English

I have loved this story every time I’ve read it.

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

It took me a long time to wade through the whole story, but the journey was worth it. What a master storyteller Mark Twain was! To see the human condition laid out so well was disturbing, but how very necessary it is when we can get our noses rubbed in the muck and mire of the human condition.

How true it is, that even with hindsight being 20/20, left to our own devices, the human race will continue to get it wrong. And yet, the P.S. at the end holds out the hope for redemption!
