So, after being tired of Huck Finn, I got sucked back in. This book makes me laugh out loud.
I’m not going to re-hash the plot. Essentially–I like it. Loved it even. I recommend it. But there were a few points where I thought…mmmmm, this part should be shorter. Especially the parts with “the king” and “the duke.”
Outside of those pieces, it was a lovely book.
Up next: The Elusive Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy

Did the frequency of the “n” word bug you? I was surprised by how often it came up, especially early, during my recent re-read.
I knew it was something people didn’t like previous to my reading of it. So, I guess I was prepared. Considering what a advocate of human rights in general that Mark Twain was and considering that it was written so long ago, it didn’t bother me so much. If it were a new release, I expect I’d have had a harder time with it.
