5.0 out of 5 stars finally going to finish this book!
By jmcdonald01 on October 14, 2018
I've tried to finish reading this book several times (thru the library). but I moved to a tiny town that doesn't have this book! what?! so, I decided it was time to add it to my book collection. why I haven't just done this, I have no idea. I purchased it used. it is in good condition, well read. it came in the mail quickly, faster than I expected. and I have finally finished it and placed it in my bookcase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Staining inside of the pages
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 31, 2019
My friend had told me about this book and said I needed to read it so ... I bought it. The book came pretty quickly in the post which I was happy about but what I wasn’t happy about was the staining inside the pages and crinkled back cover. I get that it’s a used book and all. Just off putting.
