Publisher's Summary

The Mysterious Stranger is Mark Twain’s final novel. It was worked on periodically from roughly 1890 up until 1910. The body of work is a serious social commentary by Twain addressing his ideas of the Moral Sense and the "damned human race". The story tells of the adventures of Satan, the sinless nephew of the biblical Satan, in an Austrian village in the Middle Ages. Classic storytelling. A very interesting side of Twain’s writings. The recording also contains the short stories "A Fable, The McWilliamses And The Burglar Alarm, Hunting The Decietful Turkey.

    Story
    "Learn basic pronounciation before you perform"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The book is a classic and worth the time, but the reader cannot pronounce basic words.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mysterious Stranger and Other Stories?

    The thin line between good and evil, and how most evil is done by men, not devils.


    Would you be willing to try another one of William Fortier???s performances?

    No. He can't pronounce basic words. He should spend time with a good pronouncing dictionary before trying to read a book.


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

    My reaction was mostly pique at the reader, and trying to guess what word he *really* meant.


    Any additional comments?

    Any Twain is good, but I'd try a different reader.
