Editorial Reviews

Review

"We chose The Norton Reader for the breadth and excellence of its readings-and for the way those readings foster critical thinking and thoughtful writing. It's a book that prompts both instructors and students to think about many of the most important questions being discussed across the academy today. And it gives our very diverse faculty plenty of choice at a reasonable price." -- Alan Ainsworth, Houston Community College "Still sets the standard." -- Allston James, Monterey Peninsula College "The depth, selection, and range of choices in The Norton Reader are exhilarating. I often feel like I am in a candy store and have to make very difficult choices from all the goodies." -- Linda Goldberg, Stevens Institute of Technology

And it covered so many topics. I especially liked the questions at the end of most of the pieces as it gave you an opportunity to reflect even more and such interesting stories.

It had stories from various authors.
There will also excerpts from the same stories seen earlier/ later in the book.
It was okay.

Not the biggest fans of the readings they thought would be a good collection. Many great essays were left out in my opinion.

I just received this book today! I'm so glad I was able to find it online at a more inexpensive price rather than buying it at directly at my college. This is the first book I received for my first semester of my freshman year. So, I'm really excited! Thanks for shipping it so fast! It was shipped the same day I ordered it, and arrived shortly after, which was great. I also liked the "thank you note" on the inside of the book thanking the customer for purchasing the book. So, thank you so much, this book will always have a special place in my heart! :)

I must say I was exceptionally disappointed with almost every piece in this book. Almost everything in this book was very clearly liberal with regard to selection of what pieces made it in. No surprise that this would be required reading for a course. Wouldn't buy again however I did appreciate the idea behind a collection of short stories and what not, just don't care for the execution.
