good one

Mark Twain's short stories are an American treasure. What I like about Mark Twain is that he is very good at capturing the unique dialect of the individuals within his stories. He was an acute observer of human nature -- as any great story teller is -- and his works are timeless. Every American should read Mark Twain.

Excellent

It was indeed easy to listen while providing information one wouldn't supposed to listen. I esteemed the author's ability to keep my interest when discussing a single man's life.
