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.

This book is very entertaining. And is great for kids. Every story has a moral to it and is good for little kids that can read.A second grader could easyly read this book.Im twelve and have read almost all of the books.My mom homeschools and before i got the kindle she printed a whole bunch of these books.This kindle is great because I can now read any book from her list almost from the kindle.So if you are thinking about homeschooling your kids get a kindle. It will be cheaper and easier on you.

NOTE: This volume does not contain the complete collection of Alger's works, only 57 of his popular novels.
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!

My 13 yr old son began reading Horatio Alger about two years ago and he quickly became my son's favorite. When we moved from bound books to the Kindle, I was happy to find them individually in the free domain, but the price on this collection was great and it means he has plenty to keep him busy for awhile. I love the fact I don't have to preread them or worry about what's inside as Alger ALWAYS has a hero of great character who has some sort of challenge to overcome. The settings are historical and help my son visualize what life was like "back then." These stories are a great find for boys.

The stories are completely out of order which you can tell as the publisher tells which book is next at the end of every story and which books preceded regarding the main charachter. Alger deserves five stars but this edition doesn't.

I love living in the age of the e-book. This volume is one of the reasons why.

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!

These stories, like the Westerns of Louis L'Amour, celebrate Traditiional American values. In the American dream, good overcomes evil, work and honesty bring rewards, virtue is rewarded, and the good guy gets the girl (I like that). And I do remember that in my youth I sold magazines, shined shoes, painted fences (not quite like Tom's cleverness; it was hard work), and graually advanced in life.

I still hold those traditional American values and enjoy revisiting them through Horatio Alger Jr's timeless stories.

Cheers! - - - P

A great collection of Alger's books. The only downside is the table of contents. You must click "beginning," then press the back arrows to get to it, which was confusing at first. However, this is a great deal for anyone interested in Alger's fiction.
