At least I did. And secondly, reading this book can cause some unusual dreams that can wake you in the middle of the night.
Not necessarily nightmares, but uncomfortable feelings, none the less. But that just comes from a book that gets inside your head, and any book that does that is a good book indeed.
Why don't you give it to some rich person? We others are still ignorant of sin; we are not able to commit it; we are without blemish, and shall abide in that estate always. I was sorry, for at that time I had but a dim idea of what the Moral Sense was. But, as I told you, I shall change their lives and those ages. Satan said we must put the artillery in place now, and station the halberdiers and display the cavalry. It smote like a thunderclap, and they were like to swoon with the terror of it. He couldn't get around that argument, and it cheered him up.
This is also the first book I've read where I underlined certain parts. I did it so that I could go back to those parts later when they crept into my head and caused more questions or possible answers. It's that deep.
Read it and come up with your own questions and answers. I admit, this book was intriguing.
However, I did not finish the book because of the anti-God ideas in the book. It made me uncomfortable, especially with the cruel angel named Satan and the fact he said there was no God. If you are fine with this, then it is an interesting book, but definitely not meant for all readers. Customer Reviews See All. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

Compra verificada. Stupid Amazon puts the reviews of a bunch of different editions all on one reviews page. I like it a lot.
The text is just as I remember it. The print is large enough and easy on the eyes.
It is basically just 'The Mysterious Stranger' with a few 2 page stories tacked on in the end. I bought this for a friend and wanted to make sure the print wasn't tiny and uncomfortable to read, and it wasn't. It's a nice little book, a sturdy largish paperback that is well worth the 3.
As for the story itself - utterly engaging and profound.
Don't miss it. Buyer beware! This edition of this book, with the green and gray cover, published by Classic Books International, is NOT the same version as the Kindle edition it is linked to. Buy the copy that has the cream and green cover and is published by the University of California Press, the cover shown in the Kindle edition of the book.
This is an egregious mistake on the part of the Amazon site. The two versions are very different, with many different characters and a different setting. I told a help desk person 2 months ago but this has not yet been remedied. Mark Twain at his best and that's better than almost anybody.
