The Curious Republic of Gondour and Other Whimsical Sketches


Read by John Greenman

(4.8 stars; 11 reviews)

As the title reveals, these stories are a collection of some of Mark Twain's more fanciful and eccentric works. They run the gamut from political commentary to our species' need to "be remembered" somehow. Taken as a whole the stories are "whimsical". Taken individually, they speak the truth in different ways.
