So Disappointed
Review of Wuthering heights - Emily Bronte by FluffNiri

Advantages: You will not take true classic literature for granted after reading this.
Disadvantages: Mind numbing and annoying

What can I say, I am disappointed with this book especially with all the hype that surrounds it, I read until the end stubbornly simply because I do not leave books I have started unread. I don't know how anyone can hold this book in high regard, in my o ... Read review

All a question of taste. Some of us have it. by miloh
Gosh. Who knew that one of the ultimate classics in literature could be so summarily dismissed? Some insight into the plot (without spoilers), a discussion of the writing style and exploration of the major themes would make this into a more helpful review. Xx by tallulahbang

good classic
Review of The Great Gatsby - Scott Fitzgerald by SK1997

Advantages: interesting view on society
Disadvantages: none

Just by reading the first thirty pages, I was really bored and thought that the beginning was rather unnecessary. I didn't even know who was speaking until after ten pages; someone called Nick and I couldn't figure out who he was! But when you think about ... Read review

Good review by mozzie76
I've just finished "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and am about 25% of the way through the "The Girl who Played with Fire". I had no idea there was a bit of a conspiracy theory surrounding these books / the author. I don't really think "Men who hate Women" would have been as catchy a title! by Bollinger28
