Product Description

About the Author

Mark Twain, born Samuel Langhorne Clemens, was an American humorist and writer, who is best known for his enduring novels The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which has been called the Great American Novel. Raised in Hannibal, Missouri, Twain held a variety of jobs including typesetter, riverboat pilot, and miner before achieving nationwide attention for his work as a journalist with The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. He earned critical and popular praise for his wit and enjoyed a successful career as a public speaker in addition to his writing. Twain s works were remarkable for his ability to capture colloquial speech, although his adherence to the vernacular of the time has resulted in the suppression of his works by schools in modern times. Twain s birth in 1835 coincided with a visit by Halley s Comet, and Twain predicted, accurately, that he would go out with it as well, dying the day following the comet s return in 1910. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Paperback.

HASH(0x9cac5d98) out of 5 stars Great, but why not get a collection? 22 July 2010
By Bill R. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Eve's Diary" is one of the most famous and notable entries in Mark Twain's series purporting to be the diaries of Adam and Eve. Like the others, it is a different take on the classic story; both humorous and thought-provoking, it recreates the famous scene with surprising plausibility and is very enjoyable. This begins somewhat more light-heartedly than the related stories, and is indeed quite funny, but ends with one of the most powerfully affecting love meditations ever. It is hard to read without a tear, and anyone who has ever loved will be profoundly touched. Often seen as a tribute to Twain's recently deceased wife, this is a small masterpiece. Anyone interested in Twain should read it, especially those who enjoyed related pieces, and it is highly recommended for anyone interested in Genesis - and indeed for everyone, as its core element is the most universal of human feelings. Though well worth reading in itself, it is available in collections - The Bible According to Mark Twain, etc. - alongside related pieces and many other works, making a standalone hard to justify.

HASH(0x9cd51af8) out of 5 stars Mark Twain is a god of American Literature. 4 Jun. 2008
By William Hoffknecht - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recommend almost any Mark Twain writings, and the Diary's of Adam and Eve are two of my favorites. Twain did a miraculous job of creating an almost perfect idea of what Adam and Eve must have been really thinking if they actually thought like men and women.
Funny, sweet, and good-natured, this is a good tale for both young and old.

HASH(0x9cfc89e4) out of 5 stars Very Touching 22 Feb. 2011
By Adriana in Los Angeles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the companion to Extracts from Adam's Diary. Although the tone of this story is quite different that Adam's Diary in that it is not overtly humorous, it is still a worthwhile read. The two stories together poke fun at the differences between the sexes. This one, being from the female perspective, is a little more introspective and emotional, but nonetheless still humorous when comparing how the two genders completely misinterpret each others actions and can witness the same event and come up with two different versions of what happened. Yet despite these seemingly irreconcilable differences, the two still come to love and depend on each other.

I do recommend reading Adam's Diary first, otherwise the end of Eve's Diary has little meaning. I actually teared up on reading it.

HASH(0x9c9d63fc) out of 5 stars But where are the illustrations@ 17 Sept. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
5 stars for Mark Twain, but two stars because the gorgeous period illustrations appear to have been left out (they aren't in the sample). You can get the complete illustrated book from Project Gutenberg:

I couldn't stop laughing as I went through the pages. A short and adorable read for sunny and rainy days.
