It is short, and if you only have a short time to read something, this might be for you. Funny. No, it's hilarious. It has the stamp of Mark Twain's humor all over it. And then you'll probably want to read it again sometime when you have another brief encounter with free time.
That being said, "Extracts.." is a funny, short, irreverant read. It's less of a commentary on God and the story of creation and more the story about the foibles of men and women.
I highly recommend it for anyone with an hour to kill who wants a good laugh.
If you enjoy a good short satire, this diary is for you. Be prepared for a lot of giggles and a few hearty laughs.......

Entertaining and humorous, although slightly irreverent about Adam and Eve.Published 3 months ago by Barbara Munford
I found this mildly amusing but not LOL-funny. Mark Twain is a venerable author, however, so it doesn't hurt to read him.Published on July 6, 2013 by Angel Peters
It was a fun read. And I had no idea that Mark Twain would make a story about Adam. It is a bit of a chuckle and a short read but very interesting read.Published on May 22, 2013 by E. Dettrey
I have always liked Mark Twain.. But this one is too short and leaves too much to be expected I would have liked the entire book rather than this short excerpt.Published on April 4, 2013 by Barbara E. Sammons
