Twain's birthday already? My how the years have flown.

I actually haven't read too many of his works, but I'll have to say Huckleberry Finn is my favorite of his work as well as being one of my favorite novels period. I only wish Twain had given the story a stronger ending. I think he kind of wimped out to tie things up too neatly.

Definitely 'Roughing It'. I live in Twain country. He's everywhere you look out here.
