A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court - Mark Twain I was intrigued by the title of this book and having heard so much abour Mark Twain's work before but never actually read any of it I decided to give it a try. The narrative was way easier to read than I thought it would, except a couple of archaic words here and there but you get used to them soon as the characters keep repeating them. I would divide the book in three parts: the first one was funny (sorcerers battles, silly knights...), the second one is darker (touching subjects such as torture, slavery, plagues, etc.), and the third one kind of tiresome (divine rights, the power of the church, work wages...). My favorite character has to be Clarence, and King Arthur had some good moments too, so I made it through the not-so-interesting parts hoping they would make an appearance. It's complicated giving a rate to such a divided text but I'm inclined to a positive rating based on the fact that it was simple, medium-lengthened, and informative.
