Roxy, a slave who is only one-sixteenth black, serves as a nanny to her master's son, Tom Driscoll, who was born the same day as her own son, Chambers. Afraid that Chambers will one day be sold to another family, Roxy switches the two infants, who look almost exactly alike. Only Pudd'nhead Wilson, the town's laughing-stock, is able to figure out her ruse and set things right. Written during a period of great tragedy in Mark Twain's life and great social unrest in America, Pudd'nhead Wilson rises above its farcical plot to ask pointed philosophical questions about society, values, and racism.

    " This is one of those books I just love with an unreasoning love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosanna | 4/28/2011

    " Pretty much everything from Pudd'nhead Wilson's calender is a memorable quote. I loved that about the book. Twain had a gift, there's no doubt about that. Surprisingly, he didn't keep my attention as well as expected though, so I only gave 3 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/25/2011

    " This was such a funny, delightful story. I loved Wilson's calendar entries. I must 'get' Twain's humor, I was chuckling to myself the whole read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 4/22/2011

    " A short read, I enjoyed it thoroughly. As with any Twain novel there is a great story line imbued with social commentary. However, I particularly liked the mystery and the detective work by Pudd'nhead; using some new fangled things like fingerprints. "

    " I liked Mark Twain when I was a child.... Boring as an adult. "

    " Mark Twain, you have a way with words--I'm in love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 3/22/2011

    " Even though I'm not typically a fan of American Literature from this time period, I actually thouroughly enjoyed reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 3/14/2011

    " Entertained me. Didn't astound. Something required for Twain heads. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greta | 3/10/2011

    " Mark Twain weaves the sorrow of slavery with the idiocy of racism into an entertaining tall tale about one small town on the Mississippi river in the the 19th century. Hard to imagine that this makes a good book, but it does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taunya | 3/3/2011

    " I'm lovin' this book, have always loved Mr. Twain. "
