Mark Twain's short stories vary from hilarious to ridiculous; they are not for the faint of heart. His underlying story morals are genuinely thought-provoking. Twain's cynical leanings are evident, yet usually quite humorous - although they often tend toward the outrageous.

For Mark Twain such problems were beside the point. He simply disregarded them, although he was quite aware of them, a great deal more aware than he was accustomed to admit. Twain had enough of the frontier spirit to dislike form. Form was likely to be something eastern; or if not eastern then something worse: European. A short story is something which, through the long process of evolution, has come to exist in and for itself. It has laws of its own, it is sovereign in its field. And it was already sovereign when Twain began to write.

Mark Twain (born Samuel Langhorne Clemens in Florida Missouri in 1835-died in 1910) is the greatest and best known American author. Twain wrote several novels; the greatest two are Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Many have read these classics in school but have not been introduced to the genius of Twain in the genre of the short story/tale tale. That omission is corrected in this marvelous collection of almost eight hundred pages. Included are such classics as "The Man Who Corrupted Hadleyburg"; "A Dog's Tale:; "Was it Heave or Hell?" The dark apocalyptic vision of "The Mysterious Stranger"; The humorous gem "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calevaras County: and many more. Twain's targets are:
1. Hypocrisy in all its many incarnations in the human animal
2. Racial injustice in America .
3. Unthinking belief in God
4. Cruelty to animals
5. Science at war with Faith.
Twain was a master at fable, the tall tale and the ironical short story. Enrich yourself with this marvelous collection.

Mark Twain is a deity. While not REALLY "complete", this would be worth the price for An Extract from Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven and The Man Who Corrupted Hadleyburg alone. "Captain Stormfield" is a hilarious depiction of what might actually happen in heaven that deflates all of the pomposity of man and Christianity of the time. The Man Who Corrupted Hadleyburg is another hilarious send up of the self righteous as one man sets out to revenge himself for a slight received there. Also notable for The Diary of Adam and Eve and his early The Notorious Jumping Frog. Also How I Edited and Agricultural Paper. I reread these stories over and over. This is a gift, as how could I to share such humor with friends?

Leave it to Mark Twain to be laugh out loud funny, subtly humorous and also biting in his commentary on the world and people who inhabit it. This is a tour de force of Mr Twain's writings, and no Twain library would be complete without a copy of this book. After reading this book it would be difficult to the point of impossible to argue that Mark Twain isn't one of the best - if not the very best - writers America has ever produced.

I love Mark Twain so the content is great. I do have a problem with Bantum Books and how they produced the book. The type it too far over to the binding making it difficult to read.

Well Mark Twain has made a name for himself, so I will speak on the book. The book is large and clear printed. I like the timelessness of the stories and will have an easy time using a book of this size.

This collection of Twain's shorter writings is simply excellent and is one of my all time favorite books. The only downside to this edition is that it leaves out "The Mysterious Stranger", which earlier editions had. Still all in all a great read that has plenty of Twain's humor but also showcases his serious side (such as The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg).

Very complete and nicely laid out, but text is very small and very thin. I’ll keep it as a reference, but I won’t be reading it front to back. Pity.
TWAIN'S INTELLECT AND WIT ARE AS ORIGINAL TODAY AS THEY MUST'VE BEEN CENTURY-BEFORE-LAST .. AMAZING
