Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lavinia | 2/9/2014

    " Brilliant! I was so impressed with it, that I told all my friends (who enjoy reading) to give it a try. At least one was enthusiastic about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Robbins | 2/2/2014

    " Legitimately funny, and a quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rey Montaño | 2/2/2014

    " This is ridiculously funny. All of Mark Twain's books are witty. One of the greatest love stories of all time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marvin | 1/30/2014

    " A cute book, but not as clever as I expected from Twain, & given 19th-century constraints, failed to address the couple's discovery of sex, which could have been very funny given the character traits he gave to Adam & Eve. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared Anderson | 1/25/2014

    " This book is so different from the rest of Twain's writing. Don't get me wrong, Twain's wit and sarcasm are dripping in this novel. But you get to see a side of Twain not very often seen. It's obvious that his relationship with his wife was a cherished one. The humorous interactions between Adam and Eve left me laughing out loud several times. But the line, "Wherever she was, there was Eden," gets me every time. Twain has a masterpiece here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chanel Earl | 1/20/2014

    " I requested this book form the library over six months ago when I was studying Paradise Lost. Maybe the wait increased my expectations. I liked it, but I expected something more enlightening. It was a short, fun little diary and I did enjoy some the humor, but it left me wanting more depth and insight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Anderson | 1/20/2014

    " This book was amazing. Mark Twain took the oldest story known to man and gave it a new twist without being completely blasphemous. I loved every second I spent in the reading of this novel! (trivia for Twain lovers: it is the only book where he writes with a feminine point of view). The closing statement has to be one of my all-time favorites: "Wheresoever she was; there was Eden" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 1/15/2014

    " I did a book report on these my freshman year in h.s. I just remember how sweet, peaceful, romantic, and funny they were. Adam goes around thinking he knows everything, Eve lazes around eating strawberries with the tigers... my mom also read them to us as kids and we loved them then, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penny | 1/12/2014

    " A simple book explaining how it was with the first man and woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlene | 1/6/2014

    " This was a very good book. I enjoyed thinking about how things might have been for Adam and Eve living on the earth alone and chuckling at the differences between men and women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 12/17/2013

    " The Diary of Adam and Eve was super good, and The Californian Tale was probably one of the saddest things I've read in a while. I haven't read anything by Mark Twain since high school, but this was definitely worth it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 11/28/2013

    " The title stories were surprisingly hilarious. The others were ho-hum. I'm glad it was short. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick\ | 11/27/2013

    " From the male point of view, of course. A bit of reverse evangelical cynicism, nothing more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 11/15/2013

    " Funny and sweet telling of Adam and Eve's courtship from their perspectives, written for his wife (Eve's diary was written after she had passed away). A lot of funny moments, and Eve's entries are poetic and lovely. It's short and sweet, highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Pi | 10/24/2013

    " Two stunning stories, hiding deceptive beauty behind witty observations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzie | 2/20/2013

    " Hilarious! I'd love to see this on stage. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 dale paul | 1/6/2013

    " Read up men, and learn from the master: "Adam at Eve's grave: 'Where so ever she was, there was Eden.'" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chandra | 12/8/2012

    " Funny and touching. One of my absolute favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashlee Draper | 6/26/2012

    " Clever in a way that is clearly Mark Twain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Edie | 6/6/2012

    " The most beautiful and sweetest love story I have ever read. Brought me to tears more than once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zenith Tacia | 5/4/2012

    " Thats funny book, but if I were eve I'll thinking like that too....maybee "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 5/3/2012

    " Amusing and sometimes tender. Eve comes off much better than Adam does. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiphanie Stocks | 4/27/2012

    " It's been a while since I've giggled so much when I read a book! I believe Mark Twain was well versed in the mysteries of man and woman and their relationships. This was a great, quick read and I am going to force my husband to read it before I return it to the library! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 12/25/2011

    " That was one of the funniest books I have ever read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mnm | 8/14/2011

    " Refreshing take on an ancient topic. Makes me want to read more Twain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 6/3/2011

    " Simply WONDERFUL! Great writers have that reputation for a reason - so full of "Twainian" humor! Short and sweet; don't miss this quick "read"! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 4/25/2011

    " This is a very fun read with surprising depth. I love things like this that take familiar (to me) stories in a new direction. Hurrah for Twain! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 4/23/2011

    " loved it. sweet and funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 4/19/2011

    " This was a surprise find. This book showed a different side of Mark Twain "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eliza | 3/21/2011

    " This is now one of my favorite books. The switching POV's provides a humorous and imaginative account of what it must have been like for the first man and woman. You'll laugh at lines like "Well, I do declare, if there isn't the dodo!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/31/2011

    " This was a real good story. I really enjoyed it. A good read for all "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/13/2011

    " Charming and insightful. I especially like the part where Adam referred to little Cain as an "unclassified zoological freak." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/6/2011

    " It was ok. Maybe I didn't find the satire very amusing because it's based on assumptions that are so far from my own perception of the "truth" about Adam and Eve. I did like the ending, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 1/3/2011

    " Had it adapted for a theatrical reading. Love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 12/29/2010

    " I laughed out loud~ I had to read it to Mark.....so funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Larashi | 12/12/2010

    " penuturan percakapan di kisah adam dan hawa ini bener2 lucu dan menggelitik
    ini bagian fav.nya
    sayang cerita2 selanjutnya agak sulit dipahami,,penuh pemikiran yang agak berbelit2. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bri | 11/19/2010

    " I am loving it so far, it is hilarious! The clever wit that Mark Twain uses throughout this ownderful read keeps me laughing. "

About the Author
Author Mark Twain

Mark Twain, pseudonym of Samuel L. Clemens (1835–1910), was born in Florida, Missouri, and grew up in Hannibal on the west bank of the Mississippi River. He attended school briefly and then at age thirteen became a full-time apprentice to a local printer. When his older brother Orion established the Hannibal Journal, Samuel became a compositor for that paper and then, for a time, an itinerant printer. With a commission to write comic travel letters, he traveled down the Mississippi. Smitten with the riverboat life, he signed on as an apprentice to a steamboat pilot. After 1859, he became a licensed pilot, but two years later the Civil War put an end to the steam-boat traffic.

In 1861, he and his brother traveled to the Nevada Territory where Samuel became a writer for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise, and there, on February 3, 1863, he signed a humorous account with the pseudonym Mark Twain. The name was a river man’s term for water “two fathoms deep” and thus just barely safe for navigation.

In 1870 Twain married and moved with his wife to Hartford, Connecticut. He became a highly successful lecturer in the United States and England, and he continued to write.
