    "I enjoy reading and wanted to find some good free books. I found Pride and Prejudice on Amazon, which is a free ebook. I gave it a try and hated it. It was incredibly boring. No wonder it was free. The typesetting is terrible, too. There are hyphens were there don't need to be any and many pages are just half pages for no reason. I do not recommend this book at all."

    "This is a great classic. Any novel by Charles Dickens is worth reading and this one is one of the best. I enjoyed the drama and the history, accurate or not, that the book gives. History is in the eye of the beholder after all. "

    "After searching for free books on Amazon I came across Oliver Twist which is a book from my child-hood. After reading the description it took me back to when I was a kid, I knew right then I had found what I was looking for. After a few moments, I could download this "free" book right to my Amazon fire tablet. Thank you, Amazon, you made my day!"

If this describes your feeling, then this new edition published by Restless Books could be the one to change your mind . . . This edition comes with some wonderful helps for you to begin to realize why Don Quixote has had such staying power."

    "Some say Joyce's Ulysses is the greatest novel of the 20th Century. I have to say i completely agree. This book is everything, so imaginative, so profound in it's sources and as Nabokov says, it should not be read as an analogue of the classical "Ulysses" but a a piece in itself. Above everything else, I think it is a comedy, one of the most hilarious books ever written and one of the most literate and enjoyable books ever."
