He encouraged us not to fear supernatural things, such as ghosts, andsaid they did no harm, but only wandered about because they were lonelyand distressed and wanted kindly notice and compassion; and in time welearned not to be afraid, and even went down with him in the night tothe haunted chamber in the dungeons of the castle. The ghost appearedonly once, and it went by very dim to the sight and floated noiselessthrough the air, and then disappeared; and we scarcely trembled, he hadtaught us so well.

Mark Twain at his best and that's better than almost anybody. Twain's book, written late in life, reveals his cynicism about society and humanity

Mark Twain at his best and that's better than almost anybody. I love his paragraph on the god myth at the end of the mysterious stranger which depicts the silliness of the creator story. His common sense and humour are outstanding in this story as it always is and it was a joy to read. Twain's book, written late in life, reveals his cynicism about society and humanity. No. 44 is also a mind-bender because some of the concepts it explores are very complex. It's rather different from his more famous works; if you're looking for something like Adventures of Tom Sawyer or Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, this book may not be for you.

Twain wrote multiple versions of the story; each involves a supernatural character called "Satan" or "No. 44". All the versions remained unfinished (with the debatable exception of the last one, No. 44, the Mysterious Stranger).

The Mysterious Stranger A Fable Hunting The Deceitful Turkey The McWilliamses And The Burglar Alarm. But it was Father Peter, the other priest, that we all loved best andwere sorriest for. Some people charged him with talking around inconversation that God was all goodness and would find a way to save allhis poor human children. It was a horrible thing to say, but there wasnever any absolute proof that Father Peter said it; and it was out ofcharacter for him to say it, too, for he was always good and gentle andtruthful.

This edition of this book, with the green and gray cover, published by Classic Books International, is NOT the same version as the Kindle edition it is linked to. Buy the copy that has the cream and green cover and is published by the University of California Press, the cover shown in the Kindle edition of the book. This is an egregious mistake on the part of the Amazon site. The two versions are very different, with many different characters and a different setting.I told a help desk person 2 months ago but this has not yet been remedied. DO NOT BUY THIS EDITION IF YOU WANT TO READ THE AUTHORIZED VERSION OF THIS BOOK!

Stupid Amazon puts the reviews of a bunch of different editions all on one reviews page. So to be clear about the edition i'm reviewing, it's the $3.99 paperback with a red rectangular center with the swirlies around it. I like it a lot. The text is just as I remember it. The print is large enough and easy on the eyes. It is basically just 'The Mysterious Stranger' with a few 2 page stories tacked on in the end. I bought this for a friend and wanted to make sure the print wasn't tiny and uncomfortable to read, and it wasn't. It's a nice little book, a sturdy largish paperback that is well worth the 3.99. As for the story itself - utterly engaging and profound. Don't miss it.

Most definitely one of my all-time favorite books! Reading this work is like floating down a lazy river trailing your fingers in the water. Its pithy stuff this particular story, but told with such ease and sure-footedness, it requires no effort from the reader. How can that be?

What a pleasure to read. I have no doubt but that I will revisit this story periodically throughout my lifetime. Thank you, Samuel Clemens!

Twain's book, written late in life, reveals his cynicism about society and humanity. No. 44 is also a mind-bender because some of the concepts it explores are very complex. It's rather different from his more famous works; if you're looking for something like Adventures of Tom Sawyer or Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, this book may not be for you. Although No. 44 does include some of Twain's trademark humor, it's also quite dark. I found myself feeling rather depressed at the end of this novel, but I did enjoy certain instances of Twain's wit--such as his comments about cats. Overall, No. 44 gives you an interesting glimpse into Twain's mind. Just remember that it's dark in there!

Gerat stories, specially the third one. Several interesting ideas in all of them and great quotes from Twain. Hihgly recommended.

This edition restores the text to a more faithful representation of Twain's actual text and the result is darker, far more metaphysical version of the novel than Albert Bigelow Paine's spurious edition. This is the one to get!
If you only think of Tom Sawyer when you think of Mark Twain...you've not read the Mysterious Stranger. Deep, dark and metaphysical.
