88. Innocent's Abroad

By:  Mark Twain
Rated 4.5
Audio Book from Libravox


I love Mark Twain's dry wit and humor.  And although this book was published in 1869 I can easily compare many of his experiences and reactions to those I have had myself while traveling to some of the same places.

I dearly loved his take on keeping a faithful travel journal since I always attempt and fail to do the same thing.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION: One of the most famous travel books ever written by an American, here is an irreverent and incisive commentary on the "New Barbarians'" encounter with the Old World. Twain's hilarious satire impales with sharp wit both the chauvinist and the cosmopolitan.
