    "While it is a great story, and a wonderfully written novel, it is not illustrated, so if you are looking for illustrations, look elsewhere."

    "Very underrated book with tons of intrigue running through it. I really enjoyed how they focused on the main characters and what their true motivations were through the narration. I could easily have seen this as something Stephen King would have done previously."

    "Dracula is obviously one of the best horror books of all time. The thing that has always burned in my mind though is the incredibly creepy illustration of Dracula in the book. To me, that image just made the book scarier. I highly recommend this book if you love horror novels."

    "While books from Dan Brown prove to be very popular, this particular title has nothing to do with Illustrations. It's possible the novel contains a few pages which have illustrations, I wasn't really able to tell with 100% certainty from the description. Since it's unclear, I would say this is a poor solution."

    "Picnic at Hanging Rock is a work of historical fiction by Joan Lindsay, not an adult illustrated book. For that reason, I am giving it a low rating as it does not fit into this category, otherwise I thought it was a decent book that would have rated higher."
