    The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain’s death. In celebration of this important milestone, here, for the first time, is Mark Twain’s uncensored autobiography, in its entirety, exactly as he left it. This major literary event offers the first of three volumes and presents Mark Twain’s authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave, as he intended.

    Story
    Where does Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is not just the man, but his life and times in ways which defy explanation. You just have to hear this! (Yes, the first part is sooooooo boring, but persevere!) Unexpected pieces of news from long ago: A woman physically dragged from the white house, American genocide of a native people over a 3 day period across the globe, and a woman famous simply for being written about (LONG before Paris Hilton). He makes people you knew only from long ago history exams come alive, with all their faults (long fallen from the history books) and holds up shining examples of fine individuals you never heard of. This is history (albeit disjointed) as you have never heard it. Amazing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1?

    Dragging the woman from the white house.


    What about Grover Gardner’s performance did you like?

    Matter-of-fact.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed outloud several times.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for Volume II.
