Kind of reminds me -not unexpectedly- of Jim's dialogues in "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", which I had the unfortunate idea of reading in English as a young boy (I'm Italian!) but which I every now and again I re-read, since incidentally I still consider it to be one of the best books of I ever read, not to say the archetype of modern American travel fiction!
Wow! That is random. I have been wanting to read Twain for a while now. I just borrowed Tom Sawyer from my local library yesterday. I did not make the connection.
Perhaps, it all depends on when you read something...
But I remember enjoing a lot,
Twain's-A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, some time ago!
Thanks to the license's expiration and the web, I have had the chance to appreciate some books that I might have never tryied reading, like Moby Dick, written by the awsome Herman Melville. (note: Only because, I don't study any subject related to Literature.)
