College freshmen hate reading. They don't read instructions, they don't read their class schedules, and they don't read textbooks. However, if it's short enough to read in a few minutes and controversial enough to cause an argument, they will read. That's the great thing about the Seagull Readers. It offers an enormous variety of topics from authors whose writing spans centuries. It's a great way to introduce non-readers to the idea of analyzing writing. Take a peek - it's entertaining reading just for pleasure too.

I purchased this book as required for an English course. The essays are, for the most part, interesting and engaging. There were a few essays that I did not enjoy, but they encouraged respectful debate among classmates.

I bought the Seagull Reader essay collection a few months ago for an English class, and so far have been very pleased with it so far. Many of the essays I had already read, in whole or in part, by other anthropologies. However, the Seagull collection is extremely user friendly, concise, and features great introductions before each piece. Overall, I am very pleased that I do not have to lug around a 12 pound book every other day like I had to in high school.

Also, the price and cover design is very attractive and reminiscent of "old-school" notebooks. My ONLY real complaint is that the soft-cover can get annoying at times. It seems to bend rather easily, and while it hasn't caused too much of an annoyance, I would have paid a few extra dollars for a hardcover edition (if one such exists).

I got this book as a requirement for class, but to be honest I never read most of it. I just carried it with me so I wouldn't have points taken off for not having it. What I did read seemed interesting enough and I probably would have read it more if I had the time for it (Though honestly I've read through dictionaries before learning new words, so I'm probably just weird and not sure how well my thumbs up for it would be). Problem is with return shipping when it wasn't needed anymore. I returned it and never got any confirmations it was returned or money back for the return. This may not be too big a deal to most people, but for me, who was so tight financially there was some periods where I'd barely eat at all during a week or not eat at all for a few days because I had no damn money for groceries, this could be a serious issue
