I just love some of those books. They have wonderful stories. You get here a real bargain that is worth the money.

It was nice to reread a bunch of my old favorites, and even read a few for the first time. Previous poster said you can find these for free, but I think it was worth a buck to have them all in one place on my ipad, which keeps my place.

I downloaded this book because I have always wanted to read Gullivers Travels along with many other books that are included. I started reading Gullivers Travels only to find that they had only included the first half of the book. I tried re-downloading the book to see if it was just a error, but nope, only the first half of the book was included. I now have to locate and purchase the whole copy. Very disappointing!

I am so glad i got this. I have no problmes with any page freezing. Its full of very cute stories. The fact you can tell your friends you got a 7000 page book is kind of funny. I did not find any problems yet, but overall its good to get 25 classic books for 99 cent :)

So many books for .99 only all great classics. A little hard for younger kids to read though. This is the best deal a must have!

This is a great collection of good reads, but the app needs better navigation tools.

Oh my gosh! Totally sweet! I'm 11 and i like all the stories I've read so far. Althogh, Anne of Avonle kind of had a drop off ending. Anne of Green Gables was good though. Anne of Green Gables id the first book, and Anne of Avonlea is the second book. Little Princess (at parts) makes me want to cry :) .

This book is a great way to learn about the past what it was like and how things happen good for a 9 year old

This book is a great deal with numerous books which the whole family will adore. The spelling is a little off and sometimes words or letters are randomly capitalized. I was sooooooo excited when I found it with many of my favorite stories. If you loved this story collection I recomend 25 favorite novels volume 1. Check it out :-)))))))

Amazing to find all these classics under one banner for less than the price of a soft drink! We're pleased to have some beautiful hard copies of these in our library -- this version makes it easy to read them on-the-go and not worry about hauling them around or tearing a page. Be aware that this downloads as a single 7000+ page title, so chapter headings of individual books are unavailable in the table of contents (which lists each novel as a "chapter.") Despite such a minor inconvenience, and the lack of any illustrations, this still rates 5 stars for sheer volume of great literature practically for free!

I am 11 years old and love the old classics like little men and huckulleberry fin. I thought this book was an insparation. Two tumbs up on my side. Not a good book for younger kids, that is the only downside. God bless.
