A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

by Mark Twain

We're reading this book over at right now and I LOVE this book. I think it might be a mistake, though, to equate Twain with The Boss as a previous reviewer does. Admittedly, it's hard not to, what with the tone of voice sounding SO like Twain, but I think MT was pretty vociferous in his own indictments of Hank Morgan. Twain just criticizes EVERYthing and everyone--part of his charm--but does it in a way that makes us laugh. It's a pity everyone thinks they know this book but really only know Bugs and Bing (not that I'm slamming either). The book is way deeper and even sadder than you'd expect. The link to the Connecticut Yankee podcasts (they're all free like this site is) can be found here:
