Those Extraordinary Twins


Read by John Greenman

(4.3 stars; 17 reviews)

"Those Extraordinary Twins" was published as a short story, separate and distinct from its origins inside Twain's "The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson". As Twain explains, he extricated "Twins" from "Pudd'nhead" when he found, as he was writing, that he'd created a farce inside a tragedy. This is the excised farce, a story about Italian Siamese twins who completely take over a small Missouri town, splitting it down the middle with half supporting one head and the other, the other.

ah the silliness!

(4 stars)

visualise as you are listening and you can't help but laugh at the ridiculous logic if things! read well and voices are great. almost a shame it was not a full story in itself.

excellence as standard

(5 stars)

every time I listen to a Marc Twain book Narrated by John Greenham I feel a little sad because it's another step closer to coming to the end
