This is hilarious. I'd seen a claymation version of it on TV or video a really long time ago. The book was even better. I've always been critical of the creation myth. Twain took two characters that have always been spoken of with reverence and turned them into something the Bible never could: Human. ( )

I think this is the original version of men are from mars, women are from venus. but with humor. ( )

Short and entertaining book that can be read very quickly. The first half is much funnier than the second one, but the book as a whole is ok. ( )

first published in 1904. I got pdfs from Gutenberg.org of originals

En teoria un libro gracioso. Entiendo que tiene cierto humor. Adam pensando que Eva habla demasiado. Eva pensando que Adam no tiene sentimientos, etc. Pero al final no son mas que unos cuantos topicos de hombres y mujeres puestos juntos. Nada interesante ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0965881156, Paperback)

The most complete edition of Twain's two stories, it uses Mark Twain's preferred text and includes passages not previously included--and not available in any other version. The editor's afterword tells how Twain came to write the "Diaries," which are recognized today as his most personal works of fiction.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 17:58:50 -0400)

Adam and Eve examine the humorous relationship between men and women by presenting their "diary entries" from their stay in the Garden of Eden and their life together outside the Garden.
