If you've read one Horatio Alger book you've read all of them, though a few at the beginning are different. In general, poor boy makes good by combination of luck, pluck, and good manners. But I'm 67, and last night, feeling tired and out of sorts, I decided to read Horatio Alger again. Yep, same old stuff. But same old GOOD stuff, and I was entertained, especially by the first book, which I hadn't read. I recommend them for homeschoolers, and was delighted to see a review by a homeschooler.
Excellent reading at an excellent price! Alger was truly the master of the rags-to-riches story! His writing has inspired millions of boys to work hard to acheive their goals. These charming morality tales will warm you with their wit and style. Highly recommended!!! High quality, wholesome fiction never goes out of style!
I first heard of Horatio Alger back in the 80s when I was in college. I don't remember exactly where - probably one of my classes. A snarky friend of mine who had read one of his stories thought they were "quaint" and actually "funny." Isn't it a laugh, after all, that hard work and honesty get rewarded? Cynical people everywhere think so.
Back then I was only able to get two stories at my college book store: a volume that had both Ragged Dick and Struggling Upward. Finishing those, I found a used book store that had other volumes for sale, but, as I recall, purchasing them there was simply beyond my means at the time. The owner had them priced as collectors items.
I love Alger. If you need mental inspiration, they're like a warm, comforting blanket and a hot toddy. If you're tempted to lie, cheat and steal, Alger's good at reminding you that isn't the way to get ahead. You'll be a success if you work hard and are diligent.
Two bucks for every novel the man ever wrote? That's awesome! In an ideal world, this edition would include a guide to the books so you could know where to start. It would also include the illustrations from those beautiful editions in the used book store. However, this isn't an ideal world and neither is this presentation.
But it's two bucks! Only two bucks! That's a ganga!
I still hold those traditional American values and enjoy revisiting them through Horatio Alger Jr's timeless stories.
Cheers! - - - P

An incredible opportunity to have this collection at my fingertips!Published 5 months ago by Anthony Colella
It was so fashionable to denigrate Horatio Alger's books when I was in college, that I never actually read them until this collection came out. Read morePublished 7 months ago by A.D. Hopkins
The stories are easy reads, each with a moral message for young boys. The settings in the late 1800s are interesting.Published 11 months ago by Walt

Most entertaining and it gives a good picture of life and action on an English war ship of the line.Published on January 14, 2014 by Jack P. Moore
These afre dated books of rags to riches stories. They are very entertaining and even though you can always predict the ending they have some suspence to them. Read morePublished on May 4, 2013 by victor ross
