    "It’s definitely a classic and thus one of the best books to read in autumn break. Everyone should read it! The characters are entertaining, the dialogue witty, and the plot satisfying. It was a bit difficult to read because of the old-fashioned style and language. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable read and definitely one of the best books to read in autumn break. "

    "I've read and re-read the Hobbit at least 15 times, the first being when I was eight. It's such a wonderful, engrossing novel. Your imagination fills in the blanks, and then Peter Jackson comes along and films it. I would be sad if I thought there was anyone who hasn't experienced the joy of this book."

    "This is the foundation of the fantasy genre for literature. There may very well be other books out there that preceded this in the genre, but this series established it on the map. This was the penultimate for those of us old guys and gals who grew up playing dungeons and dragons back when parents were freaking out, thinking it would screw us up for life and drive us crazy. This was really ultimate fantasy novel, and many people have probably seen the movies by now, which I am pleased have treated the series with the respect that us nostalgic old guys and gals have for this series. If you haven't read this novel because you're younger and only saw the movie, I believe it's worth a read. There are a lot of things in the novel that didn't make it to the movies, and the movie changed some things. I don't get upset about that, and consider film to be a different literary form, and so changes must be made of necessity to novels adapted to movies. Some hard core Tolkien fans were probably upset about it, but most of us love the films."

    "Wuthering Heights is one of the best books ever. I read it during a Summer break and again during my recent Winter break, so I know it would be great during an Authum break. Everyone needs to read it to capture the essence of romance at Thornfield Hall."

    "The Catcher in the Rye is a classic every one should read. It is perfect to read during a student's autumn break from classes; it's short enough to be read several times if desired. "

    "I haven't read any of the other books, so I didn't really know what was going on. I've seen some of the movies before, but this was much different and very confusing for me. There were also many spoilers for the parts of the series that I hadn't been through yet."

    "This was my favorite book that I read in school. The first time I read it was during our Autumn break at school. It was the book that started my love of reading and also pushed my love of monster books and movies. I'm not sure any new books will every touch this classic by Mary Shelley. "

    "The book I read before this one was Sparkling Cyanide, which, while written in 1942, gives no evidence that Britain was at war. In fact, people are described as recently having visited Europe, which, of course, would not have been possible in 1942. So, I think Christie herself may have been reluctant to give up on the interwar period as the setting for her books. Her early postwar books, while generally not as good as the earlier books, still maintain something like the tone of the earlier books. "

    "On a dark and dreary forenoon in early February I picked up this Everyman edition of the Complete Stories of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849). The book is a joy to read. Contained in this volume are such classics as: The Black Cat; The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym; The Fall of the House of Usher; The Tell-Tale Heart; A Jerusalem Tale; The Purloined Letter; The Murders in the Rue Morgue (the first detective story) and many other stories which may be less known to the reader. Poe was a brilliant man who wrote in an ornate style showing his great erudition, love of science and the possibilities of life after death. This edition is almost 1000 pages and will keep you flipping the pages with wonder and literary appreciation. A five star classic!"
