This is so much fun

If you could sum up A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court in three words, what would they be?

Surprising, entertaining, funny

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court?

There is lots of memorable moments in this book, though I like the piece where he went on a knights quest with a fair maiden to save her mistress from a wicked witch

What about Norman Dietz’s performance did you like?

Normans voice and pace gives life to the story, and he makes it easy for the listener to create immages of the action

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - but I did'nt have the time.

Any additional comments?

It is a light hearted story with loads of wondering, ingenuity, warmth, ignorance, love and intollerance. Read it or listen to it. :-)

Funny, Smart, and Timely

I wish I could convey the delight I felt listening to this presentation of Twain's astute critique of society -- past and present. While written over 100 years ago, its insights and wisdom are as timely, perhaps even more so, than they were then. The reading of this book is also a joy -- the reader is sharp, witty, and brings the first-person of this narrative not only to life, but to a engaging seat next you. By the time I was hour into it, he was my friend, charmingly relating his unbelievable tale to me. Do yourself a favor -- listen to this book.

This ain't the movie.

If all you know of this book is the silly Danny Kaye movie, you have denied yourself a true treat. His humor and wit are as sharp here as anything he ever wrote. You will both laugh and be astounded. Listen, it's a gem.
