This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Adam shuns Eve and complains about her to hilarious effect. Both diaries have in common a deep curiosity and sense of awe, and both are truly laugh-out-loud comic in their individual ways. The story is one giant quotable passage status updates above offer several excerptsand little observations Eve records about Adam and vice versa make it startlingly clear just how fresh her perceptions are e. Readers will get a special kick out of the illustrations, which complement the story perfectly.
These illustrations compose half of the story; each story page has an illustration opposite, and some story pages contain only a sentence or two, in plain writing.
The book easily could be read in a single setting, in just a few minutes. It should be noted that a basic knowledge of Genesis–Twain alludes to the part of Genesis that mentions Eve was in charge of naming the animals, for instance–is helpful but not necessary. The Diaries of Adam and Eve is priceless. A first-rate, unforgettable novella. Readers looking for something short, funny, and a little touching should grab this now.

Mark Twain gives us his version of this most interesting question; peppered with humor but not preachy. View all 4 comments. Demasiado adorable y gracioso. While Twain plays on and derives humor from some familiar gender stereotypes, this is in no way a one-joke piece. The man and the woman, while playing their traditional, stereotypical roles to perfection, also happen to be the first of their sexes.
As a result, Adam and Eve are able to play out the battle of the sexes unhampered by the cultural While Twain plays on and derives humor from some familiar gender stereotypes, this is in no way a one-joke piece.
They are freed from blame for their behavior at least for a timeand as a result we the readers are relieved of our cultural responsibility to blame them.
After all, it was their types that became stereotypical, not them. And so Eve and her reluctant mate emerge as so much more than mere caricatures.
Instead, they can be seen and enjoyed as two young people in a new, uneasy relationship, not only with each other but with the aran and their creator.
And she does–at a price. This book is a tiny gem, and well worth a trip to the library or bookstore. Desde entonces quise leer el libro, y fue un doble disfrute.
Mqrk serio, la obra es hermosa. Bought this at the used book store today, and read in the car between grabbing lunch and christmas shopping. I haven’t read Twain since middle school; I have a hazy recollection of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer getting into mischief.
I was not sure what to expect, but what I expected was far inferior to what I read. Twain breathes life into Adam and Eve in a way that I’ve known only one other author to do David Maine – in his biblical fiction novels. Beginning the day after her creation, we Bought this at the mzrk book store today, and read in the car between grabbing lunch and christmas shopping.
Beginning the day after her creation, we follow the diaries of Eve and of Adam. Filled with confusion, curiosity, and a wickedly innocent need to discover and explore, Eve is introduced as the brighter, more aggressive half. She has the ability to talk to and tame the wild animals, and gives names to everything in sight. In contrast, we see Adam, lounging in the tree branches, hiding from the talkative Eve, creating shelter from the weather as she frollicks among the flowers.
Of course, we follow their stories to the Tree of Knowledge, watch as their Garden becomes a savage, unsafe land, and share in their separate reactions to the birth evva their first child, Cain. While Twain’s idea of modern woman came across in this collection of diary entries – she being known to annoy Adam with her endless chatter, falling into the pond after staring at her own reflection, being sensitive to Adam’s moods and wanting to do things to please him – it was done in a tastefully, harmlessly, almost humorously.
I will certainly be adding more Twain to my to-be-read shelves now. View all 6 comments.
Me gusta como se distingue cada personalidad, y cada uno le aporta algo distinto a la historia: Creatura asta noua cu parul lung ma cam incurca. Imi da mereu tarcoale si ma urmareste. Nu prea’mi place asta fiindca nu’s obisnuit cu societatea.
Mai bine statea cu celelalte animale Azi e timp noros, bate vint de la rasarit. Cred mmark o sa vina ploaia peste noi. De unde’am scos si cuvintul asta?
Creatura cea noua spune ca o cheama Eva. Merge, n’am nimic impotriva. Zice c’are nume, ca s’o chem cind vreau sa vina. I’am spus atunci ca’i inutil. Mi’a spus ca e facuta dintr’o coasta de’a mea. E cel putin dubios, mak sa nu zic altfel. Nu’mi lipseste nici o coasta. Genul asta de dragoste nu e un produs al rationamentelor si statisticilor.
Tdain vine nu se stie de unde si nu se poate explica. View all 5 comments. This is some of Mark Twain’s most beautiful writing especially the sections from Eve’s point of viewbut the tale is still imprinted with Twain’s signature wry humor, skepticism, and criticism of the human condition.
I loved it so much I will have to teach it. This one will give us so much to discuss. What a perfect little book. It’s sad that Mark Twain probably never saw it published altogether as one book. It’s short and sweet, and oh so memorable. How amazing that this title got so little publicity. Now I’m on a crusade to read all of his lesser known works.

Loved this beautiful little book. Let’s see if I can find my copy and post a picture Hmmm how can I post a photo? An amusing and moving take on the relationship between the sexes.
Love redeems a fallen world: Something to read in an evening or an hour or so. I am always in awe of Mark Twain’s uncanny ability to transcend time in his writing.
That being said, this is one of the few times where I felt my modern perception of feminism put a damper on the first read through. Also, reading the bio at the end of the book gave more insi Lovely read. Also, reading the bio at the end of the book gave more insight.
Reminding me of his love and adoration for his beloved Livey, and this being somewhat his tribute to her. For example, my first read through, I was annoyed with the cliche stereo-types about diaroi and was disgusted with the reference to Eve’s love for Adam “even if he were to beat me” etc. Second read-through, I was in awe of the beauty that Eve fully appreciated in the world around her. She articulated and recognized with such detail the magnificent creations all around her. And Eve’s capacity to love was absolutely astonishing.
It was so quietly written into the pages that I took it for granted.
