Mark Twain began his career in letters as a printer's apprentice at the age of 12.

Twain was a popular humorist, a failed silver miner, an inventor, a pacifist anti - imperialist, and a vegetarian. He had a strong interest in the paranormal. Twain's novel 'Huckleberry Finn' has profoundly influenced the development of American storytelling. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I took interest in this because it was about twins, by Mark Twain and it was free. When I read it, I laughed out loud at the introduction. As an adult twin, I've been asked numerous times, "What's it like to be a twin?" and answered, "I don't know, I've never not been a twin.". I enjoyed reviewing well written details about being a twin. It sounded like the story was going to be a "good twin vs evil twin" story, but showed that both twins had their strengths. The story itself is silly, Twain admits himself that it was pointless. It was a quick and entertaining read.

At one time this was published with Pudd'nhead Wilson. As explained in Twain's introduction, the two stories were originally part of the same tale, but the Twins were later -- um, separated. In some ways I think this is a better and more entertaining story. (Though, of course, Pudd'nhead is a must-read.) Give it a try.

This book portrays the possibilities of the life of being a twin with the exceptional imagination of Twain. The book simply cannot be put down and brings so much joy through the unique humor and wittiness of its author.
