    "Frankenstein is a classic horror book that everyone knows and loves. It's part of the original horror stories such as wolf-man or vampires. Frankenstein is clearly a monster who will no doubt go for revenge on the man who created him."

    "A Study in Scarlet is a great introduction to Sherlock Holmes. I missed it originally, but bought it recently and have to say it is a really good book. If you haven't read any Sherlock Holmes in a while, this is a great way to re-visit Sherlock Holmes. With the vivid imagery and the characters, this book is too good to pass up."

    "One of the best classic revenge themed book that I have ever read. Hamlet is truly a masterpiece and believe that everyone should give it a try. Although the writing style is weird it shouldn't defer you from picking up this book and giving it a try since it has wonderful character filled with a dark theme. Highly recommend."

    "I really loved this book. I'm a Stephen King fan, and this reminded me of him a lot. It wasn't revenge-themed in my opinion, but just a really great book with a lot of suspense and action. The author isn't afraid to take out his own characters, that's for sure."

    "Betrayal, insults, and revenge is the focus of this Greek tragedy. Medea, written by the Greek playwright Euripides, is proof that what goes around comes around. What Medea has planned, no one saw coming."
