Why anybody would need to read a review for a free download of a book is beyond me, but here it goes! I thought that I had read all of Mark Twain's books, but it looks as if I might have overlooked this book.
This fictional story of a stolen elephant is truly a joy to read. Many parts of this ridiculous and incredibly detailed story of an idiotic bureaucracy are just as true today as they were 150 years ago. This is another masterpiece reflecting Mark Twain's imagination and wry sense of humor. I think there was a sentence or two in which the original text was somehow scanned incorrectly, but it didn't raise my hackles enough to warrant the purchase of an original (OMG paper) version of this book! Reading any Mark Twain book in an E-Book form has many advantages over the paper version. In nearly every chapter, Mark Twain used an obscure word that I could not recall the definition of. In an E-Reader (I use a Nook Fire) you can highlight the unfamiliar word, and immediately get the definition of that word. If you like Mark Twain, you will want to read "The Stolen White Elephant".

There seems to be problems with transcribing some parts of books such as this. Throughout, the major turning points of the stories, which are quotes from either letters or newspaper articles, are completely missing. I am guessing that the missing sections appear in italics or some variant form.
This not the only book in which I have seen this -- makes the entire thing useless. The whole development of the story involves newspaper ads -- all of which are missing.

This is not a well done copy of The Stolen White Elephant. As other reviewers have noted, bits are missing throughout the story. Mostly newspaper clippings are missing, but frequently the article bits that do make it in have their formatting a bit butchered. The story is still very good and worth reading in this format, just know that if you really love it here then it is worth rereading in a printing that has the whole thing.

I read it mainly because I heard that my hometown of Monroe, Michigan was mentioned. I was a little disappointed that there was only one line. I had hoped it would be featured more prominently. But it was good. How can you say no to Mark Twain. LOL

Love the book.

I have always loved the stories by Mark Twain. I wanted to find some of the other stories he'd written which I had not read. The Stolen White Elephant did not disappoint. It was a lot of fun.

I tend to like most of Mark Twain's writing, especially his satyrical ones, and this one is no exception.
It was a good short story. There were times to laugh and the story progressed well. I recommend it to any twain lovers. If you don't like twain read it anyways.
