Summary

Considered one of Twain's most important short works, The Mysterious Stranger tells the story of the devil coming to a medieval village in the persona of a beautiful, lovable, yet exasperatingly amoral young man. Befriending a small group of boys, Satan exhibits strange charm, compassion, and indifference as the tale comes to a surprising comclusion.

Very Poor Narration

I got, perhaps 10 minutes into the story before stopping it. The Narrator is very difficult to listen to. He recites the story rhythmically as if it were poetry (which it's not), offers no characterizations, and has some very irritating vocal habits (like a very bizarre pacing of the word "and"). It's absolutely maddening!
I'd recommend looking for a recording with a different narrator, if possible.

The narration is perfect for the story.

Any additional comments?

I felt as if I was being read to by ol' Sam Clemens himself. Don Randall captured the spirit of the period better than I would have hoped he would, especially after reading some of the negative reviews..

Indeed, a very thought provoking piece, and I feel one of Twain's best. Especially the ending.
