  • Why haven t I heard of this wonderful book before I stumbled upon it by accident while reading one of Helen s Keller s autobiographies She mentioned visiting Mark Twain and how he read some excerpts from Eve s Diary to them That made me curious I found Eve s Diary on as well as Extracts from Adam s Diary Figured I should read that one first It was absolutely charming the illustrations were delightful Only Mark Twain could have infused so much humor into the story of Adam and Eve What a treasure


  • Mark Twain s Extracts from Adam s Diary reads exactly as what it sounds like a brief account of the Book of Genesis beginning with Eve s inception in 2 21 and ending with Abel s birth in 4 2, by my estimate , as narrated in the first person by Adam himself in his diary It begins thus Monday This new creature with the long hair is a good deal in the way It is always hanging around and following me about I don t like this I am not used to company I wish it would stay with the other animals Cloudy [...]


  • Lol Absolutely brilliant I read this twice in a row just to laugh again, and it was actually better the second time A huge contender for my favorites list And there s even this gemstone I find that principles have no real force except when one is well fed.


  • This text is as exact as it sounds it s from Adams point of view completely read like diary entry s rather than read for the audiences enjoyment I love the way he writes very boldly about his days especially his annoyance when Eve first finds him and forces her company on him He doesn t call her Eve though he often refers to her as the new creature or the annoying creature, he finds her presence frustrating and annoying because she seems interested in naming everything whereby he s not The first [...]


  • I didn t know this hidden gem existed until browsing through the table of contents for a Twain anthology I picked up for my Kindle I had to stifle my laughter in order not to disturb my partner who was sleeping next to me while I devoured this quick read in bed Very, very funny stuff.I read it along with his companion piece, Eve s Diary, which I also enjoyed though not nearly as much Perhaps that speaks to the criticism in some corners that Twain never understood women maybe it suggests that I d [...]


  • Very funny, relatively short story purported to be an extract from Adam s diary.Eve so SHE calls herself, and she s a she not an it talks too much She s overly fond of naming things with no rhyme nor reason A dodo is a dodo because it looks like a dodo And she s attached a little too much to Cain, which Adam first thinks is a fish, then a strange kangaroo, then a bear.It ended rather abruptly and I would have enjoyed a bit .Recommend Free Kindle download.


  • This was a super quick read, but really entertaining I loved Adam s curious nature, especially in regards to the first time he sees a baby which Eve claimed to have found while hunting , since it doesn t resemble a grown person as he knows it, he mistakes it for a fish, a kangeroo, a bug, before eventually settling on a type of bear This is a cute, clever spoof of the Genesis story, and I look forward to reading Eve s Diary next


  • Mark Twain gives us a very amusing recount of how Adam s first days were as was translated from the original manuscript I chuckled quite a bit through this and I thought he did a good job on this.


  • Delightful read.I do love Twain s humor There is something so true about being human, funny without being cruel, and always a good lesson to learn In this case about the relations, the similarities, the differences between the sexes, albeit with a Victorian era slant.


  • This just might be my favorite of Mark Twain s work And I ve arranged my thoughts into a haiku Superintending,So pensively gullible,While Eve sets the score.


  • sempre melhor comprovar as coisas pela experi ncia do que apenas saber Porque se se depende da adivinha o ou suposi o ou de conjecturas, nunca se fica educado H coisas que n o podemos descobrir mas nunca perceberemos se s o desse tipo se n o experimentarmos Pois , temos de ser pacientes e perseverar na experi ncia at compreendermos que n o podemos compreender E maravilhoso quando assim , torna o mundo t o interessante Se n o houvesse nada para descobrir seria uma chatice S mesmo o tentar descobr [...]


  • Adam s account of life, first as a bachelor and then as a husband and a father.As clueless as Eve, maybe a little so, he is not as curious and thus appear to have a better footing on his existence If you read carefully, he also has a line to God that Eve doesn t, and knows things that Eve does not, such as the forbidden tree Such clues can be read from Eve s diary too, where she wrote that Adam told on her view spoiler Also fascinating is the exercise he goes through in trying to classify his o [...]


  • As a devout Christian, I reverence the scriptural account of Adam and Eve I also enjoy the humor of Mark Twain, and hope that my enjoyment of his satire via an alleged diary of of Adam and Eve as they discover the world about them is not irreverent Both books were fun and imaginative, and did not harm to my faith.


  • Historia curta p dese ler en pouco m is de media hora na que se narran os acontecementos do X nese desde o punto de vista de Ad n.Boa edici n coas ilustraci ns orixinais.A traduci n de principios dos anos 90 polo que a nda emprega as normas ortogr ficas de 1983 nembargante.







  • Adam s side of the pictureThis is the counterpart to Eve s diary the world accordig to Adam.It s short, lighthearted and very funny.


  • I haven t read Mark Twain s books in years and reading this reminded why I love his works The wit and humor Absolutely loved this short story



  • I liked it It was interesting to see how Adam saw the baby boys and where trying to figure out what they where.
