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
Perfect for my praxis II studying!

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."

Many of the editions by this group of authors are actually guides to books rather than the works.

If the author of the SparkNotes is known, they should be the first author. Please leave these SparkNotes Editors as the second author and the author of the original work as the last author. Do not combine with the original work. Do not put the author of the ORIGINAL work first.
