I should be shot...but not for the reason Mr. Twain laid out in the preface but for the main reason that I ain't gone and read it till now. And me an English major and all too.
But that ain't here nor there now cause a body cain't go on worrying about what's done. This book was all right with me. Plenty of pranks and adventure to be had. I must say that Mr. Twain must not have realized that his book was gonna be sitch a hit or he would not have used such vulgar language for African Americans. I dasn't say more on this subject, but just know that he didn't mean no harm by it.
All in all, I would say it was mighty fine.
