I bought this for my Introduction to Literature class, and I must say I did appreciate the book being broken down into four smaller books. I cannot imagine trying to handle the text if it had been all in one book. However, the thin pages are a huge downfall, as it makes them very easy to tear and almost impossible to highlight. The highlighting just bleeds right through the page. It's also hard to write with anything but pencil in the books for the same reason. I suspect some of you will cringe when thinking of highlighting or writing in your text, but it was required by my instructor and I personally find it helpful. I would say the pages are about the same thickness as what is in a typical Bible.

The literature in this collection is typical for an introductory class. I found most of it enjoyable and there was a nice variety. I would recommend being very careful if you are planning to sell this book back at the end of the semester as it's easy to damage.

Brand new book and it's actually relatively cheap, compared to some other sites and my school. I thought the fiction and drama parts were actually really entertaining, for being something that I had to read for school. Personally, I wasn't a big fan of the poetry part; however, they had a giant variety of poets, including my favorite, so it's forgivable and I think that if you like poetry, then you'd like that section. I haven't read the writing section because my teacher didn't have us read that, but if it's like the rest of the sections, then it's got to be great!

Not a bad little collection of books. I purchased this for my Lit 231 class and we really only used the Poetry and Fiction books. The books are well written and laid out well however, the pages are newsprint type paper and very fragile.

Arrived within a reasonable time frame. Very convenient to have the textbook broken up into four separate books. Much easier for traveling with and navigating the material.

I got this book for school. I wouldn't have purchased it if I didn't need it, but the price was good and the book was separated into several smaller ones, which was great.

It is very complete and very well structured. The portable edition is very convinient because you do not have to carry all the books with you just the one you need.

All four books came with time to complete my online homework. The books include many literary works, wonderful to add to any book collection.

Good book and was exactly what I needed for class, but you could tell it was used. The corners were bent and the cover was kind of beat up.
