The first volume was especially difficult to read since it was in courier font and had page breaks that were non-sensical. This was ironic since the volume cover said "High Quality Paperback" and it was, to say the least, not. (Filiquarian Publishing LLC/Qontro).
The second volume, although it was a smaller, hardback edition, also had too many typos to count (one every second page or so). Which made for a very distracted reader. (Bibliobazaar, LLC)
ALSO - if there are two volumes in a series like this - it would be helpful for Amazon to list that BOTH are required (that is, if you order volume 1 - that there is one more - volume 2 - required to complete the series. Maybe listing them together on your website? Or somehow connecting them on your website when searching for this title.
Thanks for letting me vent my frustration. It was a required reading for a book club - otherwise I would have chucked them in the trash early on in the reading!
with serious reflection on these pages. Youthful innocence is liberally laced with steadfast valor to create a valiant hero. Samuel Clemons,as always, interjects the images of pastoral peace combined with turbulent times for an
almost defeated France. Her decadent totality had been squeezed into a small
area, her leaders cowed by English conquests, her mind and psyche stifled by
hardship and war.
Joan of Arc, pastoral stewardess, true innocent, is thrust into a role by the authority of God. Her mission,to save France.
Mark Twain paints portraits of words, allowing us to witness the sordid along side valor. No person of so called worth would listen to a simple peasant,but Joan never relinquished her visions. We are rewarded with another jewel from
Mark Twains mind projects thoughts splendidly written by a master tale spinner.
I don't know about that but this is consistently entertaining with the simplicity that folklore and myth should have. I was moved to tears several times by the vivid scenes he portrayed. It's clear he was an ardent admirer and I'm definitely going to find more information on Joan after I've finished volume 2.
Wish I could have been there to experience that firsthand. But this book is the next best thing. Awe-inspiring if you believe it -- and I do.

Twain was a little fixated on JoA -- and it shows in this writing. Recommend this for anyone who might be interested on finding out history from a novelist's point of view.Published 15 months ago by P. LeClaire
