Letters from the Earth
- By: Mark Twain
- Narrated by: Carl Reiner
- Length: 6 hrs and 31 mins
Here we see Twain on a somewhat personal level. Penniless and having just lost his wife and one of his children, Twain turns to writing about God, Christianity, and the many curious natures of man. This collection was so controversial that his daughter prohibited its publication until 52 years after his death.
A must read for thinking people

I loved the religion-themed stories at the beginning. Truth! Risky blasphemy! The final story was too science-fictionesque for my taste. It was well-written, but not my thing. Overall, this book is evidence that Twain was at least one hundred years ahead of his time. An absolute genius.
