Well worth every second I invested reading it. Chock full of literary references, this book has something for everyone, whether you are a lover of timeless classics or an English professor looking for a worthy narrative to study.

Even if you are just trying to get into (or freshen up on)reading skills "101" or basic lit education. Again a great book. Also students may find this helpful as a quick review before a test or follow-up to a novel that was enjoyed, leading to want of further material o

I'm using it to review for the CSET exam. It's like having a lovely photo album, but instead of saying "Remember that Easter bbq?" you find yourself saying "Ah, George Orwell...I remember how you ruined my life."
