There is no moral or sociological point to the story--Mark Twain explains in his introduction that he saw a pair of Siamese twins at a fair and decided to write a silly story about another such pair off the top of his head. It's a lot of fun but it was pure entertainment--I did not feel a twit more edified for having spent half an hour in reading it.
The kindle edition is a bit odd--there are parts of the story in parenthesis that don't follow with the story, for example.
Over all three stars. Minus one for the sometimes weird formatting, and minus one for the lack of any real depth to this little tale.
