I picked this up solely for the first story, "Letters from the Earth," but I ended up reading through the entire book and find I have a new appreciation for Twain’s humor and satire. Letters was very entertaining, although the religiously inclined may not find it funny at all. However, I’m not, and I did! Some other portions worth a read include Eve’s autobiography (revealing!), an amusing critique of James Fenimore Cooper’s writing style, a parody of an etiquette manual, and The Damned Human Race, which demonstrates the ’descent’ of man. Twain died in 1910, and this collection of essays and short stories was not published until 1962.

Oh, and Mark Twain referring to "hot young blossoms" amused me to no end.
