The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain Book Summary

The Innocents Abroad (1869) is a burlesque of the sentimental travel books popular in the mid-nineteenth century. Twain's fresh and humorous perspective on hallowed European landmarks lacked reverence for the past-the ancient statues of saints on the Cathedral of Notre Dame are "battered and broken-nosed old fellows" and tour guides "interrupt every dream, every pleasant train of thought, with their tiresome cackling."

The Innocents Abroad (Mark Twain) Book Reviews

As pilgrims nibble, he bites.A long voyage deep into the sordid history that made western civilization. His gaze is harsh but not humorless. Nor humble. From his perch of American exceptionalism and ignorance Twain spies dregs and vermin, decay and neglect everywhere he goes..Score: 4/5

Innocents AbroadA funny and incite full look at much of the world in Pre-World war time. Mark Twain talks about these places as a friend would with humor and a bit of sarcasm . He describes the people as he saw them without political correctness. Something that cannot be done today. I’m going to read again..Score: 5/5
