    Here is Twain's humorous, but also touching, look at Adam and Eve, in which he presents two very different interpretations of Eden.

    Overall

    Mark Twain's amusing satire on the Biblical story still carries a lot of punch. He reads back into the story a more contemporary clod and bumpkin of a man a somewhat flighty but curious and loving sort of woman into these human Originals. This humanizes the story and undermines the intended Biblical reverence for the originators of Original Sin and the progenitors of human planetary dominion. This is a worthwhile classic of literary iconoclasm. I would have rated the audiobook a 5-star complete winner except for the fact that the technical quality of the recording isn't as good as it should be.
