LETTERS FROM THE EARTH

by | Read by Carl Reiner

Classics • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Comedy legend Carl Reiner brings these short stories and essays of Mark Twain to life with feeling and drama. Much of the material is satire, and the narrator's tongue-in-cheek performance aptly suits the intent of the author. Much of the material is humorous, and Reiner's comic ability amplifies the radical ideas of a writer well known for his predilection for levity. The concepts of God, Heaven, and the Bible seem to be the commonest victims of Twain's barbs, so only the open-minded should sample these lines, which were banned from publication by Twain's own daughter.
