    Mark Twain s semi autobiographical work about the American west in the 1860 s I know that most every student in most every American Lit 301 class is instructed that Melville s Moby Dick or, The Whale is the great American novel, but Twain s works must be high on the list of great American literature This was like Forrest Gump a hundred years early Twain meets Brigham You...

    Yes, take it all around, there is quite a good deal of information in the book I regret this very much but really it could not be helped .Tag along on some travels with Twain as he heads way out west, commenting nonstop on all the new flora and fauna he sees along the way Chuckle as he beholds the exotic wholesomeness of Mormons Salt Lake City was healthy an extremely healthy city They declared there was only one physician in the place and he was arrested every week regularly and held to answer for having no visible means of support Twain was not a big fan of California, bemoaning the lack of changing seasons I have to agree with him on the last part, and I love this quote I think that to one in sympathy with nature, each season, in turn, seems the loveliest.And though I got a kick out of Twain and his brother gleefully planning the dr...

    The first quarter of Roughing It is really great the description of his stage coach trip with to Nevada is great travel writing, laced with irony and sly humor That it is describing a lost world makes it that much entertaining Exquisite.There s just one humorous episode concerning a bull that interjects during this part of the book and it seems disconcertingly false kind of corny and cartoonish in a not terribly clever way Perhaps the sort of thing he could bring life to in his famous lectures with his drawl and deadpan But I remembering thinking uh oh And uh oh was right The book continues to have some marvelous episodes as Twain continues his western adventure, but they are stretched out with a prodigious quantity of flimsy material Comic set pieces with caricature like characters get stale before they ve begun, and he spins them out as if he was being paid by the word A certain kind of broad, formulaic humor obtains probably what he needed to write for newspapers at the time, but it seems out of place amidst his mature writing.Whereas the parts where he is achingly funny tend to have a certain realness about them Clemens is making observations about things trivial and profo...

    Roughing It is a memoir covering a six year span of Mark Twain s years as a young journalist and occasional miner It might also be classified as his coming of age story He just happened to come of age during the tumult of the War Between the States, a time when slavery was still the law of half of the land From his descriptions of Native Americans, African Americans, and Chinese, there can be little doubt that at this stage of his career, he wrote to an exclusively Caucasian audience It was also instructive for this reader to read his free flowing blend of hyperbole and irony to engage, entertain, and tell a good story Sometimes it was funny or educational Other times it was overstated and redundant The first half of the book is the best part His descriptions about what it was like to travel across the western US by stagecoach were fascinating During his trip he actually stopped and visited Salt Lake City at a time when the state we now call Utah, was an independent countryand by Twain s accountruled by a not so ...

    Turn out, boys The tarantulas is loose This is probably the funniest work of classic literature I have ever read Page for page, it has laugh out loud moments than anything I ve ever seen It even leaves THE PICKWICK PAPERS by Charles Dickens and TOM JONES by Henry Fielding in the dust It really makes you wonder what it must have been like to listen to Mark Twain on the lecture circuit in his prime from 1875 to 1895 It must have been like seeing Richard Pryor or Lenny Bruce, and then some The only problem is, when you read this book a second time, a lot of what Mark Twain actually has to say about the west is really creepy He hates Native Americans I mean, he really hates them And I don t just mean compared to politically correct authors today Even James Feni Cooper whom Twain ridiculed throughout his...

    Who would have thought Mark Twain could actually be funny It s a shame most students first exposure to him is through Huck Finn, which I found to be much less accessible than this book, which was entertaining and interesting and to me a much palatable introduction to his style This book is delightful and episodic, and some encounters the Bemis and the Buffalo tale and the encounter with Sla...

    I read someone else s comment that this book is not his best that it is disorganized and the beginning parts are based on his brother s diary entries and not his own Regardless, I decided to read this after vacationing in Nevada and visiting Virginia City As a followup to that vacation, it was a good read In my opinion, the best part of this book is the beginning I liked reading about life during that time It seemed to me that it was better written, but that may have been because its style was still new to me and after awhile the diversions became annoying I lost interest about halfway through when he started basically listing info about the gold mines Today I decided to read up to 80% of the book and then make a decision as to whether i would finish it or not I didn t make it to 80% I left him in Hawaii As I found throughout the book, I d be very interested in some sections and then I d be wondering how long this l...

    Very obviously an early work, and a patchwork of Twain s experiences as he opted to mostly miss the Civil War by traveling into the then territorial west of North America This is very much a patchwork, and a long one at that personal recollections are interwoven with tall tales, and occasionally peppered with some political incorrectness that s uncomfortable to read in these supposedly enlightened days The Mormon church and native Hawaiians bear the brunt of this, and Twain was not yet a refined enough writer or person to let it move into parody it just feels mean.Still, Twain s embellishing touch is evident, and you can see the celebrated writer through the awkward passages His travels by stagecoach are particularly enjoyable, and since I live in the area, I was personally pleased to read his impressions and recollections life in of Lake Tahoe and a young San Francisco, including experiencing a destructive earthquake Like his silver mining adventures,...

    Here we have Mr Mark Twain s memoirs of his days in the American West, still barely civilized the West, not Twain , scouring the hillsides for silver, encountering wild gunslingers and traveling by stagecoach, even visiting Hawaii Wanna read about Mark Twain trying to surf This is the book for you Twain revels in the type of story that lies somewhere between fact and fiction His stories are stranger than both fact or fiction they are of their own breed They are all tinted with his own brand of wit, cynicism, and lust for life Exaggeration is his forte Verily, and that s barely an exaggeration is an oft used refrain in this book, meant to both caution the reader from whole hearted belief and to shun for daring to disbelieve Truthfully, Twain s journalistic integrity is non existent He openly admits that during his tenure as a columnist at a Nevada newspaper, he copied articles straight from the encyclopedia when suffering from writer s block But his express intent is to entertain, and that he does well In a passage only Twain could have written, he discusses his reluctance to provide the reader with any experience valuable than entertainment Yes, take it all around, there is quite a good deal of information in the book I regret this very much but really it could not be helped information appears to stew out of me naturall...

    This is by far one of the best books I have ever read I am particularly prone to wanderlust and adventurous pursuits myself, and you cannot find a better book or a kindred spirit in this regard This book is also very funny, and I found myself laughing out loud on many occasions It is true, as other reviewers have said, that the book lags a little bit around the mark due to including too much detailed information on various subjects I think Twain himself recognized this, as he is found apologizing for the great amount of information contained in the book during his introduction However, I still found Twain s long descriptions historically interesting, and the book definitely picks up again near the end Other reviewers have noted that Twain appears racist or mean in sections of the book In response I would say that...
