    "Wuthering Heights is one of the best books for high schoolers. I was forced to read it, but honestly, it was quite good. I was torn up at the end."

    "A very powerful book that gives a first hand account of how horrible and brutal the Nazis were. It's hard to imagine what it was like even as you read Anne Frank's heartbreaking account of her family's last days together hiding from the Nazis. A difficult book to read because it's so tragic."

    "Before there was ‘The Matrix’ and ‘Bladerunner’, before there was even ‘1984’, there was Brave New World. It is astonishing that Aldous Huxley wrote this tale of technological dystopia in 1932."
