Format: Kindle Edition
This is a short first-person comic story in which the narrator (presumably, Twain himself) details how he found his conscience and what he did to it when he found it.

It's an amusing little satire of societal mores, and a pretty good example of Twain's writing, too; not the best thing he ever wrote, but entertaining enough and worth reading.

Twain at his best in a fast-paced romp with his own concience made visible. This little tongue in cheek essay brilliantly looks inside a man's soul and says everything that needs to be said about how we deal (or should deal) with questions of right and wrong, good and bad. I highly recommend this little gem.

If you don't feel like sitting down with Huck or Tom, and if you just can't read about that celebrated jumping frog again, this is a short, amusing, totally Twainish treat that you can store with your other Kindle freebies and call up when the mood strikes.

The Twain character narrator is enjoying a quiet moment when he is visited by a most unpleasant character - the twisted, gnomeish living manifestation of his bad conscience. He and his conscience trade barbs and insults until the rather manic ending. This setup allows for Twain to display all of his signature humor, wit, self deprecation, and edgy honesty. There is some broad humor and some fairly cutting commentary, but it's basically a short one-act that will remind you why Twain remains so important to American readers.

A nice freebie find and a happy diversion.
