    "This serves as a wonderful and bitter reminder of the differences between rich and poor in the nineteenth century America, and the thoughts in perspectives from the former kind during the time. Anyone who feels they're following the status quo or neglecting their personal desires will take interest in this novel."

    "There are a lot of different books from the Gilded Age but I think my favorite has to be The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. This book was really informative across a few different subjects and the story was really entertaining."

    "Compelling and exciting, this series of Sherlock Holmes stories leaves you guessing on the whodunit mysteries. Can you figure it out crimes before the actual suspect is revealed? If you're a fan of Sherlock Holmes or mystery stories then this is for you. Even if you aren't a fan, give this a look over, you may find yourself milling through the stories for hours. I know I did."

    "The Glass Menagerie is a timeless story about a dysfuntional family in the 30s. It is a play, and is written in that style. The story is great, and I have read it many times over the years."

    "The gilded age is an age that goes back to the 1800's. This book occurs in the 1888 which is proper. I never have read it but it fits the topic."
