    " Meh. It was pretty good I guess. "

    " I really enjoyed Mark Twain's (as he called it) "Blindfold Novelette". An interesting idea to share a skeletal outline for a story with other known authors of that time and then get together to exchange ideas and inspirations too bad that it never seemed to have went anywhere. Also a wonderful American history lesson by Roy Blount, Jr. included! "

    " While the story was not all that exciting for me, I find that I am drawn to the gimicky stuff this was designed to elicit and never did. The essential premise was that several authors of Twain's time would write a novelette based on the same plot premise of a murder, a mystery and a marriage. Twain is the only one who ever wrote it. The resolution of the murder was predictable. The solution of the mystery was wholly unexpected by this reader - a bit far fetched, but wholly unexpected. The commentary at the end attempts to explain the solution of the mystery but it remains a bit unclear to me. "

    " This is one of those post-humously published things that gets people all excited and then let down. Yeah, it's a fun read. Yeah, it sounds like good old Twain and that's nice. But it's the tiniest tease of a morsel! If it had been released while he was alive it would only be published now in compilations of his shorter works and not draw much attention to itself. After reading this I went and reread some of his old hat stuff and was thus satisfied. "
