4.0 von 5 Sternen Politically incorrect 16. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Sensitive souls might take offence at the political incorrectness of Mark Twain’s account of his voyage to Europe and the Holy Land – and yes, he does tend to make rather sweeping judgments, holds strong opinions about a lot of diverse subjects and certainly doesn’t mince his words. He admits: „I may be wrong… my judgment errs often, just as is the case with other men’s but it is my judgment, be it good or bad“ and states: „It may be thought that I am prejudiced. Perhaps I am. I would be ashamed of myself if I were not.“

As a travel book it is obviously dated (having been published in 1869) but thanks to Twain’s ample general knowledge, amusing anecdotes, vivid prose, irreverence and marvellous wit it is still a great read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For the European Traveler 27. Dezember 2011
Von rgd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Reading this is a scream if you have traveled at all in Europe! i hadn't recalled in how many ways Twain was biased in areas of religion, politics, and race. If you can get over this and keep it in the perspective of the time it was written, the book is at times very funny. The souvenir hunters particularly ring a familiar bell.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Around the world with a jaundiced eye 5. April 2014
Von Michael J. Edelman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Innocents Abroad is one of the great works of parody of the 19th Century, as well as a thoroughly modern comedic work. Backed by a newspaper, a relatively young (32) Twain joined one of the "Tours of the Holy Land" that were popular with the newly emergent middle class, and sent back regular reports to his paper that, on the surface, read like a typical travelogue. But Twain's acid pen and eye for hypocrisy and cant were in full force, as was his ability to parody subjects in a sly and clever manner.

Even though this book is over 130 years old, Twain's satiric style comes across as very modern. Fans of Jon Stewart would find a very similar sensibility in Twain observations. I first read this book as a teenager, forty years ago, and I still find passages that make me laugh out loud.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Long but intriguing picture of an earlier time 9. März 2012
Von MamaSylvia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
eBook downloaded from [...]

Twain records his experiences on a long steamer trip to the Holy Land, from the eager journal-keepers on the trip across the Atlantic, through visits to Gibraltar and Tangier, Paris and Rome, Venice and Constantinople, a meeting with the Czar in Yalta, and finally the Holy Land trek itself.

This is a really, really, REALLY long book. The Gutenberg file lists 10 volumes and I think each of them must have been a normal-sized book by itself. I normally read 1-2 books per day, but I got stuck in this one for over a week and still hadn't finished - I started reading it as filler around other books. Be sure to find the version with illustrations, they are wonderful. Twain's self-conscious wide-eyed innocence as he recounts the ad for the trip, offering a few "exclusive" places to the public, was not particularly funny. But the book improved as he described shipboard life and seeing new sights and people, the humor becoming less strained and more situational (at which Twain had few peers). I found myself particularly enjoying three elements of the books. One was simply Twain's descriptions of the Europe of the time: the country, the towns, the people, and the architecture. Even seeing the places today, they are not the same as they were in the 19th century. Second, he makes some astoundingly perceptive comments that would do credit to a 21st century philosopher; he describes the European habit of leaving work at work and compares it to the hustling American who lets work rule his life, and notes that none of the many portraits of the Virgin Mary actually pictured a Jewish woman. And then he ruins the good effect by making ugly-American comments on the laziness or stupidity of other nationalities, as well as the Roman Catholic Church. (Although he later notes that although he has been taught all his life about the Catholic evil, he will not hear anything against the kind monks who run hostels along the route to Palestine.) Finally, although Twain's writing in general fully justified his reputation as a cynic, he approaches the Holy Land itself with a deep reverence. His awe at walking where Jesus walked is undisguised, and his knowledge of Biblical history would put a modern divinity student to shame. But the Twain-lover needn't fear he has gotten soft; he also makes caustic comments on the various relics and how so many of the events of Jesus' life conveniently occurred in lovely grottoes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Careful...this book causes seizures of laughter 12. August 2013
Von The Wolf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Twain accompanies and makes humor of a group of wealthy folks who charter a ship and travel thousands of miles from New York to Europe and the Holy Land...and other places. It is a true story of a trip that really happened...it was Twain's first book and it made him wealthy. It sold more than any other of his books in his lifetime. An example of the humor: Twain was at the Sea of Galilee and wanted to ride in one of the boats some Arab fellows rented out there. The price was high...so high that Twain said now he knew why Jesus had walked across the water.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Innocents Abroad 14. März 2012
Von Miss C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
My husband recommended this as I've been catching up on classic's I've never read before. I found it interesting to look at one of Mark Twain's first visits to Europe thru his eyes myself having been there several years ago and seeing what an adventure it was to travel over the sea's in ships from America when it just wasn't done. I would have loved being an adventurer as was he back then, as I too always kept journals on our trips.
I can't even imagine though sailing in that ship all the way to Greece and Italy and all over in what sounds like little comfort but they made due with games and prayer.
I do enjoy my Kindle and Amazon is the best.
