    "The story was a little too dark for my taste. I had doubts about the reality of events, even the locations. I'm not quite sure if the author meant to write a thriller or a fantasy novel. "

    This is Mark Twain's final novel, and the one the writer thought it was his better work. Even though the figure of Joan of Arc really existed, the events written on the book are fictionalized, and don't necessarily follow those in the manuscript of Jean Francois Alden.

    "The bright points of the book are Twain's own witticisms and quips, that have been generally well selected in this anthology. If you love to read Mark Twain quotes and want to see them in a little more context, this book is for you. If you're just learning about the man and his letters, then I would suggest you find a different collection."
