A golf cart dressed up as a Bentley.

The design and make of the Classic plain notebook are great. But the paper quality is really disappointing. The thin paper quality results in so much bleed through and show through it renders the notebook practically useless with pens - ballpoint, roller, fountain - it doesn't matter. Look at the picture I've included of the bleed through with Moleskine's own roller pen designed for use with their notebooks!
Just search Google for Moleskine paper quality and you will see a moutain of complaints about bleed through and show through. I wish I had before I bought this Moleskine. Will not be buying again.
Oh, and don't buy it into the marketing suggesting connections with Chatwin, Picasso, Van Gough and Hemingway. It's all manufactured by Moleskine.[...]
