Read full description of the books:
The first half of this short book was absolutely excellent. Eve is a free spirit determined to enjoy and bring order to the wonderful Garden of Eden. Adam is a curmudgeonly misogynist who thinks Eve talks too much and should give all this naming of animals and plants a rest.
The second half of this book is throw-across-the-room frustrating and annoying. The scales fall from their eyes, Eve fancies Adam like mad and falls in love with him. They marry and forever after she subsumes her individuality completely, and is absolutely dedicated to being an entirely submissive good wife to Adam, even willing to die for him. Which, according to Twain, together with motherhood, is the absolute zenith of a woman's life.
I'm sure the many male-created, run and dominated fundamentalist religions of the world would absolutely agree with him and maybe should substitute this book for Genesis.

Read information about the authorSamuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He is noted for his novels Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), called "the Great American Novel", and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876).
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which would later provide the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. He apprenticed with a printer. He also worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to his older brother Orion's newspaper. After toiling as a printer in various cities, he became a master riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River, before heading west to join Orion. He was a failure at gold mining, so he next turned to journalism. While a reporter, he wrote a humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," which proved to be very popular and brought him nationwide attention. His travelogues were also well-received. Twain had found his calling.
He achieved great success as a writer and public speaker. His wit and satire earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
However, he lacked financial acumen. Though he made a great deal of money from his writings and lectures, he squandered it on various ventures, in particular the Paige Compositor, and was forced to declare bankruptcy. With the help of Henry Huttleston Rogers, however, he eventually overcame his financial troubles. Twain worked hard to ensure that all of his creditors were paid in full, even though his bankruptcy had relieved him of the legal responsibility.
Born during a visit by Halley's Comet, he died on its return. He was lauded as the "greatest American humorist of his age", and William Faulkner called Twain "the father of American literature".
