This wasn't as exciting as I had expected. Yes, we did get to hear some snippets of Mark Twain's humorous writings, but they didn't package it as interestingly as they could have. Maybe it was Garrison Kaillor's voice, he sounded kind of boring even when telling something funny and he sounded disinterested when he described something that was interesting to him. The fact that music doesn't sound very good on my cheap cassette player may have contributed to it as well.

They do point out some of the interesting things that happened while Mark Twain lived in the house, though, and describe some of the interesting items and furniture he had.

Parts of this were real knee-slappers, like the dramatization from Huck Finn of the chapter "the Duke and the Dolphin". Having grown up near Twain's boyhood home of Hannibal, MO, I don't always think about the fact that he lived most of his life elsewhere. I never knew, for instance, that he wrote most of his major works in that home in Hartford, CT, where this show was set.
There were many other things about Twain I learned from this one, including his bad investments.

Will pass this one along soon.....

I enjoyed this one. One of the songs is still going around in my head! I enjoyed the Americana & the story-telling. All-in-all, I give it a 7.

Thanks for sending it my way!
