One of the most favorite books of my youth, Mark Twain is timeless. ( )

Rereading classics is good however the story is ruined by the ugliness of racism hits you square in the face. ( )
  caanderson | Apr 24, 2022 |
Rilettura piacevole, anche se meno apprezzata della prima, quando ero più vicina all'età dei personaggi e scambiare una biglia per un insetto aveva più senso. Tuttavia non posso negare di aver trovato un filo nostalgico che mi ha fatto sorridere con tenerezza, nel ripensare a un'età più ingenua dove si inventavano avventure in base alle puntate appena viste di Sailor Moon, o si barattavano figurine, braccialetti di gomma o biglie (sicuramente non topi morti o pezzi di filo :P) .

Twain non risparmia benevola ironia e frecciatine nemmeno ai protagonisti, purtroppo i personaggi femminili sono terribilmente carenti di una qualsivoglia personalità.

Dedication
To MY WIFE, this book is affectionately dedicated
First words
Preface
Although my book is intended mainly for the entertainment of boys and girls, I hope it will not be shunned by men and women on that account, for part of my plan has been to try pleasantly to remind adults of what they once were themselves, and of how they felt and thought and talked, and what queer enterprises they sometimes engaged in.
"TOM!" No answer. "TOM!" No answer. "What's gone with that boy, I wonder? You TOM!" No answer.
Quotations
He had discovered a great law of human action, without knowing it—namely, that in order to make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain.
