More About the Author

Mark Twain is the pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 - 1910). He was born and brought up in the American state of Missouri and, because of his father's death, he left school to earn his living when he was only twelve. He was a great adventurer and travelled round America as a printer; prospected for gold and set off for South America to earn his fortune. He returned to become a steam-boat pilot on the Mississippi River, close to where he had grown up. The Civil War put an end to steam-boating and Clemens briefly joined the Confederate army - although the rest of his family were Unionists! He had already tried his hand at newspaper reporting and now became a successful journalist. He started to use the alias Mark Twain during the Civil War and it was under this pen name that he became a famous travel writer. He took the name from his steam-boat days - it was the river pilots' cry to let their men know that the water was two fathoms deep.

Mark Twain was always nostalgic about his childhood and in 1876 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was published, based on his own experiences. The book was soon recognised as a work of genius and eight years later the sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, was published. The great writer Ernest Hemingway claimed that 'All modern literature stems from this one book.'

Mark Twain was soon famous all over the world. He made a fortune from writing and lost it on a typesetter he invented. He then made another fortune and lost it on a bad investment. He was an impulsive, hot-tempered man but was also quite sentimental and superstitious. He was born when Halley's Comet was passing the Earth and always believed he would die when it returned - this is exactly what happened.

More philosophical wit and wisdom from the master storyteller, as Captain Stormfield lays waste to the more traditional views of the hereafter. In very much the same vein as "The Diary Of Adam And Eve", Twain deals organised religion body blows from left and right with hilarious portrayals of such cherished figures as Moses, and some pitch-perfect dissections of the lamentable human animal.

Mark Twain's last book-"The Mysterious Stranger" was far, far better (in my opinion) but I guess this si one where he had a go at putting his accumulated thoughts (from many accumulated discussions with scientific friends) to add to a pantheon.
I will have another go but I am finding it a tad too ponderous.

Thank God Heaven Does Not Exist 17 Jun. 2014
By Edwin L. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A good summary of realistically how meaningless an afterlife would be. Historical figures with less to offer currently then they had to offer 6,000 years ago
It's Twain 17 May 2014

Well seriously, it's Mark Twain - what's not to love? He's got a keenly wicked sense of humor - you'll enjoy the read.

It was very helpful in realizing what will happen if I go to Heaven. I just hope I do not have the same problems he had.

Don't think it needs a title. 15 Jan. 2011
By Mark Weller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Book was in better condition than I expected. Well packed and seller provided plastic slip cover for protection. Would/will do business again with this seller.

Was disappointed that it didn't arrive before Christmas. I thought the timeframe allotted would have been sufficient. Other than that - perfect experience. The quality of the product itself made up for it.
