Overview

Tom Brown's Schooldays is one of the classics of English children's literature and one of the earliest books written specifically for boys. The book is more than an account of how 'the commonest type of English boy' fares at an influential public school for it also develops arguments about the nature of good government, moral education, and the integrity of the individual. It is a story which is central to a modern understanding of many leading aspects of Victorian life but its earnestness, its freshness, its lack of cant and its relaxed tolerance keep it vividly alive and help to distinguish it from the often narrow schoolboy (and schoolgirl) adventures that it later inspired.

I am afraid that my review is not good. I was extremely upset and disappointed in this book purchase. I had expected a higher quality from Barnes and Noble. The book was printed without ony pictures on poor quality paper and the backing looked cheap, raw, and looked as if it wouldn't last one reading. The contrast between the print and the white paper made it look unpleasant, dull and difficult to read. My 11year old grandson is an avid reader but he didn't even pick up the book to begin. the cover was plain and not inviting. Because I had it sent to my grandson in another city it took a while before I could visit him and see the book. I am planning to return the book as my grandson has saved the packing slip. I only need to return to his home in Dallas for me to collect the book and papers and send it back. If you have any other questions or comments I am very willing to be available jujujon please contact me by email or phone which I will give if I can send this review directly to B & N and not over a large website. Thanks,
