missing chapter titles

(4 Sterne)

Great book with one of the best readings I've heard, very appropriate to the subject matter. The book is missing the chapter titles

Greenman's reading of Twain is perfect, if not authentically like the old rascal himself.

That Boy Can Write

(4,5 Sterne)

Wonderfully written and wonderfully read.... A rich series of amusing (and occasionally distressing) stories that reveal Twain’s discovery of the Nevada silver boom, a young and bustling San Francisco, and points even further west. His homespun style is deceptively rich and nutritious. Hours after the reading, I found myself pondering various aspects of his tales. Twain started what was meant to be a three month journey as an eager explorer and a keen observer. And that is how, six years later, he ended the journey. One can easily imagine Twain telling these stories with half-smiling eyes, and that for him, no experience is complete until he has told the story.

Another great example of MT's style if writing and wit.

(5 Sterne)

A very extensive and veried adventure of the author; covering everything from the deserts of Nevada, to the high Sierras of California, to the founding and early workings of Mormonism, and to the tropics of Hawaii. the reader as always did an astounding job. You felt you were listening to Mark Twain himself! Thank you again Mr. Greenman for your great talent in Reading!

Quintessential Twain

(5 Sterne)

Roughing it is a delightful read that is full of Mark Twain's amazing humor and storytelling. As an account of his westward travels, it almost reads like a collection of short stories. His adventures are laced with his unique whit and charm that make one unable not to smile as they imagine themselves a character in Twain's travels. The narration is perfect!

Enjoyable Excursion Essay

(5 Sterne)

I love Twain and have enjoyed listening to his travel memoirs. I was glad to hear his trip to the "Sandwich Islands", I'd been wanting to hear him tell about that. Greenman is perfect for reading MT...Im eager to get to the next one.

(5 Sterne)

This reading easily earns the highest rating. Thank you so much for taking the time and care to do this. It’s a very giving act. Please know how much I️ enjoyed your public gift and how much I️ appreciate it. A deep bow...

(5 Sterne)

Listened to this on a road trip and loved it. Twain is incredibly witty and the reader is perfect. He really brings it to life.
