    It's Nice but...

    I think most of us would agree that we don't just buy these books to read but to add to a collection that we feel is worth our money. I currently have most of the leather bound books from the same series and I was excited to add another. However I was disappointed that the dimensions of this book and others in the single book collection aren't the same as the original leather bound books. Would it have been too hard to make it the same width and height as the previous books in the series? That's my only complaint otherwise it is still beautifully bound.

    I LOVE the new single novels, and Huck Finn is a great addition!

    I have many of the leatherbound classics that B&N puts out, and I love them. They are, however, all larger volumes of collected works of authors. I'm thrilled that they now have single titles, like Huck Finn and others, that I can add to my library. They're just as beautiful in their own right, and a quick glance at the pictures of the books shows that there is no illustration on the cover like some of the leatherbound author collections. I think this marks them as a different kind of book, because they are...and I'm assuming that if it had all the extras it would raise the price too much. I mean, they are LOVELY and great for collecting, but let's face it; the price is also what keeps us buying so many of them. I can't wait to get the others like Dracula, Wuthering Heights, and Pride & Prejudice.

    This is a beautiful book. I would disagree with the other poster

    This is a beautiful book. I would disagree with the other poster who was disappointed that the cover is not illustrated or the edges gold. One thing I like about the leatherbound collection is that each cover is designed by someone who seems to also love the story of what it encapsulates. It seems fitting to me that the story of Huckleberry Finn, a poor boy living by his wits, does not have ornate gold edging. The style of the cover also speaks to me of the time period, very old west, which is when Mark Twain lived and wrote about. I thought the design was very well thought out and appropriate for the novel and collection. I don't think they all have to match in style or size, because the stories certainly speak of their uniqueness, so should the cover designs.

    shouldnt be part of the collection

    I just received my copy of Huck Finn. Im sadly disappointed. Ive read Huck before and am a big fan of Mark Twain, I know the story itself is fine, my problem is with the book itself.
    I have 10 other books in the leatherbound classics collection and couldnt be happier with them. Although this book is advertised as part of the collection its form is marginal at best. It is smaller in demension and lacking the gold page edging. Also lacking are the cover illustrations. A fine book in and of itself, simply not worthy of this otherwise fine collection.

    A good book in an equally good edition.

    I admit, I do not actually own this particular copy of Huck Finn (although next pay check I'm getting, I am!) However, I do own several of the books that have come out this year. Yes, the dimensions are a wee bit smaller. Yes, there is no fancy trimming. But this really shouldn't stop you from getting them. They are just as beautiful! And they still work well into the collection. The books maybe smaller (although no smaller than most hardcovers) but I think they are a little more heavy-duty, with the pages being thicker. And as another reviewer said, the older editions were, more or less, a collection of stories - whereas these are single novels.

    Maybe I'm just not picky when it comes to books, but I thought these new ones were still very nice - they were classic looking.

    As for the story itself, Huck Finn is a good book and a very good present to give to somebody special!
