Book Review: A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain.

Having just read this book for the first time, I must say that it wasn’t what I expected. I expected Mr. Twain to take jabs at his fellow Americans by having the Connecticut Yankee being completely out of place amongst the Court and fairly overmatched. What Twain did instead was much more interesting. He had the Yankee be a resourceful and clear-headed fellow that instantly took control of the situation and proceeded to take control of the entire country through use of technology that was far beyond that of the time. Without telling too much of the story here, let me just say that Twain always delivers a good story and a lot on fun. And as always, none of it can be taken seriously.
