"... as he disappeared I knew it was true. We were all merely a thought & a dream." But if the boy could have witnessed the stranger's smirk, he would have known, "I have again succeeded in sowing despair that will grow into a tree of self-serving resentments! " For additional reading on the established methods of this stranger see C.S. Lewis' book "Screwtape Letters". The reader was excellent.

Odd Story, Good Reader

(3 Sterne)

Apparently Twain worked on this story for decades, reworking and rewriting it in several ways, but never satisfied. It was eventually printed posthumously by an editor who added quite a few things of his own, making it an unusual and uneven tale. It’s worth a listen in light of its history and the narrator has done a very decent reading.

Intriguing Mark Twain story

(5 Sterne)

This unfinished novel, the story of a bad angel and how it enters the lives of a group of Austrian villagers offers an intriguing insight into Mark Twain's philosophical ideas. It raises thought provoking questions into the nature of fate, good and evil, and humanity itself. Well read and well worth one or more listens.
