I order this book for my literature class and the sections, stories, and poems that we have read I have really liked. This book has a lot of different writings in it and hopefully one day I will have an interest in sitting down and reading more in it, I do plan on keeping the book instead of selling it back, it is a pretty easy read and I did notice that at the end of the stories if you still haven't grasp what it is about there is a spot where it gives you insight and helps you understand it. Very nice book

I got this book for school in very good condition. It has a lot of good literature, a couple thousand pages actually, and will keep you busy for a very long time.

I asked for a LIKE NEW book, and I received a book with coffee stains, it was written all over and the cover is practically coming off. This is unacceptable.
