Teen Book Review

A Connecticut Yankee in King's Arthur's Court by Mark Twain

Rating 4

Reviewed by Carissa, grade 10

Mark Twain's classic, A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court, truly earned its revered status, in my opinion at least.  The tale of an ordinary, early-20th century engineer thrown into the days of knights and wizardry features sharp humor, intriguing social commentary, and downright good writing.  Though I personally foudn the conclusion a little bit of a letdown, the whole of the story was fantastic.  The characters were well-drawn in their quirky ways, and perfectly suited for the satirical leanings of Twain's work.  All in all, I loved ths book, and it has become one of my all-time favorites.
