Download Mark Twain's fantastic tale about a 19th-century resident of Hartford, Connecticut who, after a blow to the head, awakens to find himself inexplicably transported back in time to early medieval England at the time of the legendary King Arthur.


Published in 1889, this is the novel Twain wrote right after Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Underneath the entertaining story is a sharp social satire. This novel is read by John Greenman who has voiced over a dozen Mark Twain books over at Librivox.org.

Twain writes a great political commentary in Connecticut Yankee and the story is worth a listen. Granted this recording is not as good as many Librivox offerings with distracting background noise periodically, but this is a 'free' offering of a great story on the misuse of power. BTW Librivox's The Prince and the Pauper is a decent recording and another great Twain commentary on social injustice.
