Product Description

From the Publisher

Fist edition of the complete Adamic writings

From the Author

'The Diary of Adam and Eve' itself is a more agreeable work, toying with Genesis in a mood less of indignation than affection, taking the myth as a paradigm of the relations between the sexes' - From the Foreword by John Updike

Loved it. Great little story. Very clever and although we all know the story well you never know what's coming up next in this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Warm Odysssey of Togetherness 11 Jan. 2000
By Paul Tudor OPREA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mark Twain creates a fascinating experience of a man and a woman discovering each other, learning to live together in the real world, growing up toward being a whole being.
Throughout the entire delicious epic of the story, the two characters grow from unaware children to mature humans, able to make a living together through all difficulties.
Adam, on one side, starts regarding Eve in a critical way that reminds the rigorousness of an engineer and ends warmly with the calm passion given by a lifetime of togetherness.
Eve, on the other, depicted here as the essential expression of the womanhood, appears as a living miracle of contradictions. She is so playful, sunny, innocent and wildly alive, that Adam finally realizes he's happy to be sentenced to love her forever. It is worth saying that even the Sin is reconsidered here rather as an abuse of Eve's ingenuity than an assumed trespassing...
The friendly, optimistic approach to life, the art of putting strong, fundamental feelings into everyday's words, the gentle humor far from cheap melodrama, the subtle metaphor of the joy of living arising from each chapter made me to consider this novel the most touchy love story ever written.

5.0 out of 5 stars gift for my sister in law 12 Dec. 2011
By Robin Nance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Bunko Verified Purchase
I was pleased at the quick delivery, the great condition of the book and for a rare book the price was very good. I bought this for my sister-in-law to accompany an English version I ordered for my brother. I was so happy that it had the original illustrations from 1906. I love the recent illustrations and they were in my brother's English version but they are very different from the first publication's artworks.
3.0 out of 5 stars Appreciation for Mark Twain 29 Nov. 2015
By Sue Eason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This short tale is delightful. Not for one minute,to be considered historic. I have always admired Twains dry wit and imaginative mind. It shows an appreciation of women and emphasizes the differing outlook of the sexes.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great read... 13 Aug. 2015
By John Payton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Quick read, but very thought provoking. There are several lines which I will commit to memory, and ponder upon frequently.
