Ok, let's start with the fact that these are some of the most attractive books going. Another Barnes and Noble classic to add to my ever-growing bookshelf!
"Huckleberry Finn and Other Novels" comes in a beautiful emerald green, leather bound cover with gold embossed lettering. it is quite frankly, beautifully bound with much attention to detail. Looking inside of the book, you turn the page to a gorgeous print of the river. It comes with a taupe-gold ribbon to keep your place and high quality paper pages (edged in gold). The text is relatively small, though perfectly readable and it contains five of Twain's best novels:
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer The Prince and the Pauper The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court Pudd'nhead Wilson
This book is a pleasure to read, I simply have to lay it on my lap and the pages fall open to the right place. It is relatively heavy so this is handy!
All in all, I would highly recommend it to anyone, as a treat to yourself or someone else. You can't put a value on a good story.

I've read Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn before but never any of Twain's other work, I love the style of his writing he is such a funny, perceptive writer and his work reads as easily now as anything by a contemporary author.
The book itself is absolutely wonderful, so handsomely bound in leather with a lovely gold trim to the outer edge and beautiful illustrations inside. This really does make a wonderful gift for anyone who takes pride in their book collection (it is very heavy though, so maybe not suibale for elderly people with weak wrists)
It's beautiful to look at and wonderfully enjoyable to read; all round win :)
