Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Sunday, April 09, 2017

7 out of 10

I found this good-condition hardcover at the ongoing book sale in the Dunstable Massachusetts library. It's a 2003 edition , but looks to be a facsimile of the 1940s edition I recall reading as a kid, complete with font selections and the black-and-white and occasional color illustrations.

It is, of course, a well-known classic, one that was taught in school when I was a kid - which may be one reason why I don't love it {wry grin}. Oh, it has a lot to recommend it, and I did enjoy the story, but it's far from my favorite of Twain's works. It has inspired several screen adaptations and a musical theater version - and even an anime!

[There's a TV Tropes page on the book and several of its adaptations, with some entertaining tidbits.]
