A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court (Mark Twain) Book Reviews

Still relevant and amazing illustrationsSharp humor, very quotable, fun to read and beautifully illustrated. A bit choppy in the storyline and slow in parts, but well worth the read..Score: 4/5

Incredibly realistic!I always wondered what it would be like to travel back in time and Mark Twain captured that thought and turned it into reality! It made me realize that fear and misunderstanding of the past will never truly accept the knowledge of the future, once a person cements their beliefs and values I mean.Score: 5/5

So I had to read this for School...And I’m gonna haven to say, this book was bonkers. In the good way, though. Whenever I first heard that Mark Twain wrote a science fiction, I had mixed thoughts, but after reading this book, I have come to conclude that this country themed writer could have easily become a writer for the ever so popular Sci-fi genre. The book has quite an interesting plot, and the time, though free flowing in the plot, is rather skippy and there are many moments when the time seems to have sped by way too fast in the book; For example, one of the characters has a child, and the story expects you to know this very important fact, even though 3 years has passed, and you have no idea what happened! It eventually explains this, but it does confuse things a bit. Also, this story can be WAY overly violent and almost for no apparent reason. Now I understand that this takes place in the bloody 1300’s, but sometimes Mark Twain just rants on and on about gruesome inhumanities that have nothing much to do with the plot. I know Iv’e been beating down on this book, but there are some absolutely awesome things about it it to be mentioned nonetheless. For example, it’s quite hilarious seeing the main characters extremely republican views clash with the death hold that the Roman Catholic Church and the monarchy had on England at the time, and seeing the main character’s struggle against a rival- Whoops! Almost spoiled the book! Also, the side characters are quite likable, and there are moments when the crowds cheer for the heroes, and you do to! It’s a kinda nice feeling to cheer alongside non-existent characters, as if you were in the crowd with them. (If you haven’t ever felt this, you need to read books more often!) Lastly, the ending is mysteriously mind blowing. Something that not many old books capture, this book does great! So all in all, I wanted to give this book a 3 and half, but that’s not an option on the bookstore, so I’ll give it a good o’l 4. I hope this review was helpful- Noah.M..Score: 4/5
