Format: Paperback
When I first opened this book, with the exterior looking bleak and boring, I was fairly apprehensive. Yet after reading the first page I knew I had brought a book that would transform the way I feel and see travel journals. Twain recalls his memories of his round-the-world trip in an enthrawling and exciting manner leaving the reader drouling and dreaming of visiting such places as he did. The sensual words and phrases he uses capture the very essence of what it would be like to stand where he stood in the places of the unknown, in 19th century Earth. His truly brave and unbelievable journey has urged me to personally invest my earnings on visiting some of the places as he did. If someone can make me (with printed words) visit the other side of the world how can anyone dismiss this as a bad book? Don't think, buy this book!

What an amazing record by a man so ahead of his time! His political commentaries and critical observations are subtle yet caustic and nearly always conveyed with his wonderful sense of humour! A pleasure to read...

Mark Twain's reputation travels with him in this jumbled mix of anecdotes, travel tales and chance encounters along the way. He allows his imagination to run riot inbetween hilarious descriptions of people and places such as the time Satan introduced him to God. He reminisces, speculates and passes judgement on all that he experiences. It is very much an insight into his thinking and ideas of the nineteenth century and some of his accounts make uncomfortable reading in the twenty-first century, particularly attitudes concerning the Australian aboriginies and native people in Tasmania. He certainly described places that very few people had the opportunity to visit, or if they did very few people wrote about honestly.
I recommend it as a historical account written by someone who is not afraid of expressing his opinions. I was left thinking the publishers accepted his book without bothering to edit anything, therefore cannot give it a full 5 stars.

Like all Mark Twain's travel books - and the novels for that matter - it is hugely entertaining and perceptive. Mixing fictional accounts in with the factual stuff, it is a hugely entertaining read, exposing all the human foibles in a style that still reads well 120 years later.
