A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court

As part of my Read the Classics self challenge, I just finished A Connecticut Yankee at King Arthur’s Court.  Lawdy, it was a long book.

I found there to be a lot going on in the story and sometimes it felt more like Twain was lashing out at the nobility, the time, and the Catholic Church.  The passages seemed to be there for no other reason than to rant and didn’t really serve to further the story.

I’m really wondering what I’ve gotten myself into with my goal to read the classics.  I may take a breather and read something a little more contemporary before I dive back into my classics…

  2. But it’s the best book ever, dadblameit! (Maybe you’d enjoy Prince and the Pauper better.)
