5.0 out of 5 stars A genius you'd want to have a beer with., 4 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The fire of Mr. Franklin's intellect is matched by his wit, compassion and humaneness. How many giants of history seem to possess such a concomitant talent for just plain fun? Voltaire, Swift, Wilde and Feynman spring to mind. Subversives who take risks and still find the joy in life are such a very rare breed.

5.0 out of 5 stars America's Dickens, 25 Dec. 2010
Mark Twain was an unqualified genius. Huckleberry Finn is one of the few perfect books ever written. He made humanity look at itself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't get this joke., 31 Jan. 2009
I know people I respect who think this is a masterpiece, but I found it tiresome, trite, and obvious. Slapstick masquerading as art. The backstory is amazing and I wanted to be amazed, but was deeply disappointed.
