Today，I am going to introduce you a novel called “The Million Pound Bank Note” written by Mark Twain. Through humorous and sarcastic language，Mark Twain successfully described a fortuitous adventure of Henry Adams，a poor American young man in London. Two rich men in London had a bet on him and wanted to see what would become of him a month later if they gave him a million pound bank note which couldn't be cashed. A month later，Henry wasn't starved，nor arrested，but became a millionaire instead. What's more，he even won the love of a pretty lady. This is a brief introduction to the story and I hope you will enjoy reading this representative work of Mark Twain.
