As for the book itself, my greatest tribute to Twain's great tribute to his favorite person in all of history is that, even though we all know how it ends, I cried my heart out. One reviewer said it was "empty and tortured account" - which I find nothing short of hilarious, as the story and the characters are painted so richly. Somebody else said, it loses it's steam midway through - not so; it just becomes more and more obvious that it ain't gonna end well for our hero, that's all. But it's one of the most amazing and shamefully undiscovered, underrated novels in American literary history.
Treat yourself, the writing is glorious.
