    "Requiem for a Dream was a novel that I finished in one single weekend. I didn't want to put it down and years later, the plot is still fresh on my mind. It's heartbreaking but still captivating that causes the reader to want to keep turning the pages. Of course it's one of the best books that begin with r, who would argue?"

    "This "No Fear" Romeo & Juliette little book literally makes you not fear this play. My 9th grader was able to read the actual old English version on the left side of the book and look over the right side for a translation in today's words. It allowed him to fully compare and understand those long monlolgues. This book is definitely student friendly. Very pleased. I highly recommend."

    "Admittedly you have to be interested in history surrounding Germany around the time of the second World War, it's a good read and filled with details. I couldn't give it a higher rating though because a bit too much in the way of opinion in the narration. I actually prefer my history books to be a bit on the dry, neutral side of things."

    "While the title can seem jarring, the book gives detailed accounts of the second World War's effect on art history, as it documents tales of stolen art. The information contained in the book is dense and can be a hard read though for those who are not very interested in the history of the art thefts that occurred in the era."
