    "You can't really go wrong with Molière. The works are impressive and legendary by this author, so to pick a set of best books is challenging, since so many are high-quality. L'Avare is a fun one, but it can be a bit long for less avid followers of his work. This version is in French, so you need to be able to read the language in order to make this purchase worth it. There are translations of his work, but I think the true essence of the story is captured best when in its original French text."

    "My university theater class was assigned to do a Moliere play, and we chose this one to be a bit different. It's really pretty good and was a really fun theater production. I recommend it for someone looking for underappreciated Moliere works."

    "School for Husbands is a great book, and by far the best work by Molière! This piece carefully delves into less commonly charted territory. It does a great job of expressing the views of Molière, and really being accessible to any audience!"

    "The school for wives and The Learned Ladies was a fantastic book for me because I laughed a lot when I read it. It is one of the beast comedy books that I have loved so far and was worth buying. I loved it. The story is about an insecure man."

    "This book is interesting and fascinating at the same time. It's a book that has a rich history and is quite confusing at times due to the fact that it does that on purpose. I would recommend as a good read. "
