Those extraordinary twins. A man who is born with the novel-writing gift has a troublesome time of it when he tries to build a novel. I know this from experience. I meant to make it very short. When the book was finished and I came to look around to see what had become of the team I had originally started out with-Aunt Patsy Cooper, Aunt Betsy Hale, the two boys, and Rowena the light-weight heroine-they were nowhere to be seen; they had disappeared from the story some time or other.

I had seen a picture of a youthful Italian "freak" or "freaks" which was-or which were-on exhibition in our cities-a combination consisting of two heads and four arms joined to a single body and a single pair of legs-and I thought I would write an extravagantly fantastic little story with this freak of nature for hero-or heroes-a.

Pudd'nhead Wilson (1894) is a novel by American writer Mark Twain. Its central intrigue revolves around two boys-one, born into slavery, with 1/32 black ancestry; the other, white, born to be the master of the house. The two boys, who look similar, are switched at infancy. Each grows into the other's social role. The story was serialized in The Century Magazine (1893-1894), before being published as a novel in 1894.

Mark Twain is best known for his novels and short stories. Twain uses his incredible whit to depict life in America. His books Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn have been read by school children for generations. His life on the Mississippi River has peeked the imagination of boys to go and build a raft and sail off into unknown adventures. Those Extraordinary Twins is the humorous story of Siamese twins who have many amusing problems.

I took interest in this because it was about twins, by Mark Twain and it was free. When I read it, I laughed out loud at the introduction. As an adult twin, I've been asked numerous times, "What's it like to be a twin?" and answered, "I don't know, I've never not been a twin.". I enjoyed reviewing well written details about being a twin. It sounded like the story was going to be a "good twin vs evil twin" story, but showed that both twins had their strengths. The story itself is silly, Twain admits himself that it was pointless. It was a quick and entertaining read.

This is Mark Twain at his silliest eloquence, a highly entertaining story about Italian Siamese-twin brothers who charm the heart of a small American town and end up in court over a brawl.

There is no moral or sociological point to the story--Mark Twain explains in his introduction that he saw a pair of Siamese twins at a fair and decided to write a silly story about another such pair off the top of his head. It's a lot of fun but it was pure entertainment--I did not feel a twit more edified for having spent half an hour in reading it.

The kindle edition is a bit odd--there are parts of the story in parenthesis that don't follow with the story, for example.

Over all three stars. Minus one for the sometimes weird formatting, and minus one for the lack of any real depth to this little tale.

Very interesting book. Love it.
Simple
This book portrays the possibilities of the life of being a twin with the exceptional imagination of Twain. The book simply cannot be put down and brings so much joy through the unique humor and wittiness of its author.

It was fun to read but the situations were too extreme.

"Those Extraordinary Twins" is certainly not Twain's best work. Compare it to the highly under-rated masterpiece "Pudd'nhead Wilson" to see what Twain's best looks like; no comparison. The main character(s?), conjoined twins, starts out seeming silly and the story can't recover. Twain CAN carry far-out story lines (see "
Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court"), but here, he just doesn't.
At one time this was published with Pudd'nhead Wilson. As explained in Twain's introduction, the two stories were originally part of the same tale, but the Twins were later -- um, separated. In some ways I think this is a better and more entertaining story. (Though, of course, Pudd'nhead is a must-read.) Give it a try.
