Puddinhead Wilson

Not as well known as many other Twain books, but just as entertaining and thought provoking.

A marvelous mystery

Mark Twain was definitely born a writer! He can spin a tale that is both comical yet tragic. In this story he is also a profound social analyst of the black/white issue. He really got this reader thinking about genetics, culture, society, morals, money, etc.. I highly recommend reading or rereading this classic book!

Predictable but entertaining

Never had read this story from Mark Twain, but it was an entertaining read. Somewhat predictable for today's novels but an entertaining story none the less. Pudd'nhead Wilson's calendar entries and some of the phrases (sold down the river) were worth the read.
