This edition read well, and the illustrations add a nice touch - kind of like cartoons in the New Yorker.
If you want to pep up your English or just enjoy a book written in the most colorful English ever written -- start here!
Mark Twain is the master:
"...there was still room to turn around in, but not to swing a cat in, at least with entire security to the cat."
It is a long winded book, with details about Jerusalem and Turkey. It is full of anachronisms, and they may be construed as racist even. Despite them, It's good to see an old book like this and peer into the past.
It's a long one though, so plan more than a few sittings to get through this one.
