So, how do I begin? This is a most unusual book. Not sure I've ever read anything like it. Sort of sci-fi, sort of historical, sort of fiction, sort of memoir (of a fictional character, or is he?), definitely time travel. I did enjoy it though simply because it was so different. Have always been a huge fan of Mark Twain, hence my interest in the book. Only aspect I didn't like was that the last section seemed like an add-on. I think the author could have treated the last section better; it held no spell for me. Slogged through it but fortunately it wasn't a long section. I do recommend it for anyone looking for a novel "out of the box".
