…The Twain Shall Meet, J Guevara

Part philosophy essay, part homage to Mark Twain, part quirky character studies, this book is a light-hearted romp through the Florida Keys in modern times with none other than Mark Twain. See, he never died, he was carried away on Halley’s Comet. Returned to earth with the comet for only a few weeks, he describes our modern times with humor, wit, and biting insight. If you are easily offended, don’t bother reading this book. I don’t agree with many of the viewpoints expressed in this book, but it’s not a diatribe of hate and anger that’s presented. Rather they are expressed with gentle humor, sometimes pointed, but never vilifying.

If you’re looking for something quirky and entertaining but with deep thought, try this book. I had a lot of fun with it.
