    "This is an amazing classic story. I loved reading this story when I was younger and often re-read it again. It is a tale about a boy named Pip and his journey through life. This book is still a page turner even though it is so old. Some tales are timeless. "

    "I first read Frankenstein by Mary Shelley in high school and then again in college. It is still one of the best original horror stories ever written. I found myself sympathizing with the monster that is created by Victor Frankenstein who uses his knowledge for evil purposes. The story itself is thought provoking, emotional, insightful, and tragic."

    "It doesn't get any better than Sherlock Holmes. The book that launched a mythical detective and his sidekick that still is being reinterpreted to this day. This book should definitely be in the short list of best books published in the last 200 years let alone reprinted editions from Wordsworth."

    "This book is a classic everyone should read. It is one of Jane Austen's best works and one of my favorite books overall. The story told here deals with heartbreak and romance and how to get through it all when you've never dealt with it before. Every young girl should give this a read at some point, as you can learn a lot from the story."

    "A classic tale. A madwoman locked away. Her cheating husband gets some new bride while she has to stay tortured and insane. But in the end, well, no spoilers, but she evens the score just little, LOL. A great book for all ages. Wordsworth editions has a glut of quality stuff. This is among them."
