Format: Paperback
This is one of the funniest studies on the differences in the ways that men and women see and think of the world.

Mark Twain is truly the greatest American writer and this is another one of his stories that shows why he is considered so.

It is set up like two diaries, one of Adam, and one of Eve. The brilliance comes in the different writing styles between the two: Adam is more logical and attempts to understand the world, and for the life of him cannot seem to get Eve and her actions, while Eve is running around naming things and does not understand why Adam seems so confused about everything that she does.

It just gets sillier and sillier as the stories go on, only to finally come ot a sweet and soft ending.

If you like this, also check out the Will Vinton claymation film "The Adventures of Mark Twain". They act out this story creatively.

I don't know if the Diaries of Adam and Eve are well-known among Twain's works, but the works in this book are wonderful--witty, touching, and memorable. A great read!

These stories are written by Mark Twain and to me that is all that needs to be said. They are fun while at the same time somewhat serious.

I liked the Diaries of Adam and Eve. It is a humorous short story that gave the first man and woman a personality that differs from the well known bible version of them. Adam is annoyed by Eve, at first, and Eve trys to figure out why. This version is slightly different than other versions in the fact that it doesn't have some excerpts that other versions do, but I used it for school work so this version was just fine. I'd definitely reccomend this book to someone who'd like a laugh.

The Diaries of Adam and Eve and Other Stories is an utter delight to read. What a gift that great Southern gentleman, Mark Twain had! I enjoyed reading his work so much that it inspired me to write a little playlet and produce it before an audience who also found it vastly amusing-- according to the strength of their laughter.

I highly recommend this Twain book for anyone wanting to smile.
