Summary

Mark Twain (Samuel L. Clemens) is called sometimes “the father of American literature”. He was a journalist, lecturer, boat pilot, inventor and, of course, writer. His wide life experience allowed him to depict different aspects of life very realistically. The most famous writings are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. This book became a national treasure. But there are also many worthwhile tales by Twain. One of them is "My Watch". The plot is very witty and amusing - the hero speaks at length about his precious watch. It had been working for months without gaining or losing, but one day something went wrong and he had to bring it to the watchmaker. Then it happened many times. Eventually the hero killed the next watchmaker. Everything is described in such a funny way you can’t help laughing. This story makes you smile even when you read it for the tenth time. All the experiences of the poor guy with almost broken watch are depicted very expressively and caustically. The ending is tricky in its best Twain’s style. Spend some minutes to get to know with this fascinating tale and you won’t regret it.A SmartTouch Media production.
