Written in diary form, The Diary of Adam and Eve is an ingenious, witty, and ultimately delightful retelling of the dawn of human creation with many a grain of truth for today's gender disputes. Master storyteller Mark Twain hilariously recreates the very first days, portraying Adam as something of a recluse, and a man who is ill prepared for the arrival of Eve, a talkative, emotional, and highly charged female. Yet in time, and after many moments of conflict, they begin to learn to live together and come to realize that men and women can, in fact, exist in harmony.

I'm going to cheat a bit here because this isn't the edition I'm reading. I'm reading the free ebooks (linked below), but there isn't an easy way of noting "hey, I'm reading both of these." Both are actually short stories rather than what we'd consider books, and my argument is that if you want to r...

2.0 The Diary of Adam and Eve: And Other Adamic Stories
As the introduction states, Mark Twain wrote this at the height of his "gloominess, pessimism, and contempt for organized religion" and it shows. It still has his wit and humor, but it is darker and more sad than his earlier, more jovial works. It was a bit of a slog to get through.
