Review: A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain
A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's Twain, so there is plenty of humor, some of it side splitting. The satiric treatment of slavery deftly brings forth the folly not only of the institution, but of the underlying racism.
It is also a somewhat tedious book. The lists (which Twain can use to great humor, as in Roughing It) got a little out of hand at times.
A good audiobook option to laugh away a commute or job where listening to books is an option.
