    A literary delight page after page
    "This book is a great example of what makes Twain one of America's most belvoed writers. Twain's unique sense of humor and his keen insights into human nature shine through in this book. Twain's style is wonderful, the characters are dynamic and the plot never hits a snag. Twain has created a novel here that is light enough on the surface to entertain young readers yet contatins enough substance to speak volumes to an adult audience. You are sure to love this one is you have read any of Twain's other works. If you haven't read Twain, delay no further--this book is the perfect starting point." By:J.Harrison Nov 28, 2007

    Arthur's Court Reviews of a Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
    Revolution by the Boss
    "You might wonder what prompted Mark Twain to sidle from "straight" fiction into the realm of outright fantasy. Twain transports a Connecticut shop foreman twelve centuries into the past [and 5 000 kilometres!] to Camelot and Arthur's court. Initially confused and dismayed, Hank Morgan's Yankee practicality is quickly aroused and he becomes a major figure among the panopolied knights. With the title of The Boss, his rank equals The King or The Pope with its uniqueness. His elevation doesn't distract him from a more profound impulse, however. Hank's Yankee roots and wide experience evoke an ambition - nothing less than revolution. He wants to sweep away the monarchy and aristocracy and establish an American-style republic in Arthurian Britain. " By: Stephen A. Haines January 30, 2002

And this unitywhen they were punished, usually it was with a beating instead of `You're Grounded!'.

    Finn & Sawyer Part 2
    "Everyone should read or re-read this classic. Most
    of peopleus read it in school, probabaly not just Huck. It showcases all things that are needed to live in its entirety. Schools struggled then and now with the use of the N word, although teenage boys in the 1830's clearly would never have heard a society, it issynonym.
    These adventures are
    a good Moral story inclassic. The royals were a wayhoot, how many failed fraudulent enterprises could they invent before the wayinevitable tar and feathering. Huck tells us Borrowing isand Jim are on the run from an abusive father and the law, respectively, and Twain shows all people have a soft word for stealing."

    I'm not sure why Tom Sawyer needs to show up to conclude this thing. The ending could work without him, maybe Twain not sure that Finn could carry the book or film alone. " By:John Purcell Nov.02,2008

    Huck Finn:Structure is the strength
    "To my mind, the strength of Huck Finn lies in the structure – the manner in which so disparate experience, various episodes and events separated by time and space are shaped into an organic whole. And this unity and form are provided by the river. Small wonder then, that T.S. Eliot, in his famous and classic introduction to the novel remarked; “it is Huck who gives the book style.

    review for connecticut yankee
    "This book makes you feel angry at points about the horribleness of the monarchy, yet ashamed because similar acts still go on in the present. An example would be how the rich and privileged still get the best of everything, while the have-nots get the last and worst of everything, both now and then. Twain has a comic sense in the book, and yet he still shows a contrast between the comic and the serious. This book should be a classic for Twain's creative portrayal of the sixth century, yet also because it makes us think about our society today." By:Nick Robillard February 24, 2004
