The Innocents Abroad Mark Twain epub

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."

    A 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.

    Fascinating view through his eyes 150 years ago. Paris before the Eiffel Tower and the Sphinx before the British shot off the nose. Told with typical humor and sarcasm. Wonderful.

    Full of wit and humor, Mark Twain is a keen observer of people. It was enjoyable to read about places that he visited.
