Mark Twain's Speeches, Part 1

Gelesen von John Greenman

(4,643 Sterne; 14 Bewertungen)

Spanning the time between 1872 and the year before he died, this collection of after-dinner speeches, random thoughts to "the press", etc. clearly documents, once again, the truly eclectic mind of Samuel Clemens. It also demonstrates how he dealt with adulation, compliments and notoriety...head on! This collection is a treasure-trove of Twain sayings, witticisms and pronouncements on a huge galaxy of issues and concerns in his life. (Summary by John Greenman) (12 hr 6 min)

Brilliantly read as usual by Mr Greenman, however was it really necessary to speak the chapter headings and footings for every single chapter, even though some of them be only a couple of minutes long, this rather spoilt the enjoyment of the listen.
