The American Claimant

Gelesen von John Greenman

The American Claimant is an 1892 novel by American humorist and writer Mark Twain. The story focuses on the class differences and expectations of monarchic, hierarchical Britain and the upstart, "all men are created equal" America. Twain wrote the novel with the help of phonographic dictation, the first author (according to Twain himself) to do so. This was also (according to Twain) an attempt to write a book without mention of the weather, the first of its kind in fictitious literature. Indeed, all the weather is contained in an appendix, at the back of the book, which the reader is encouraged to turn to from time to time. (Summary by Wikipedia and John Greenman) (6 hr 42 min)

lesser-known Twain novel

(5 Sterne)

as always, John Greenman gives an outstanding performance of Twain literature. I've already read much of Twain's work, but I was not familiar with this title. although less significant than some of his other books, this one contains all the usual Mark Twain wit, satire, and profound observations on human nature. It's an obscure gem worth listening to, especially with Mr. Greenman as the narrator.

(5 Sterne)

An excellent novel, both deep and funny, well… Mark Twain, what else would you expect? Certainly nothing less, still I felt exceptionally touched, my thoughts exceedingly provoked, and my body intermittently shook with mirth, by this one. In no small part due to Mr. Greenman's skill and his voice that, to me, has become that of Mark Twain himself.

impeccably read, as ever, by John Greenman.

(5 Sterne)

Typical Mark Twain wit and humor.

(5 Sterne)

A fun and whimsical tale told only as Mark Twain can tell it. Mr. Greenman did an extraordinary job as usual, thank you sir.
