      "A tale of two cities is a great book and in my opinion a must read for everyone. With that being said I think that there are much better books that are offered by penguin. Read this book but know that there are others you should put higher on your reading list."

      "If you're reading this review, you only have one question. You're not looking for a book review, you already know it's a classic. You already know this is the most original, and one of the best, and best-written horror stories in literature. You may or may not like the story, but that's a matter of personal taste. A lot of people don't like Shakespeare, but no one questions whether he was a good writer or not. If you don't like the writing style, it's because you aren't familiar with the English of this period. Nearly eighty years before Stoker's "Dracula" ( an idea stolen from Polidori's "The Vampyre", which was an idea stolen from LeFanu's "Carmilla"), this most-original horror masterpiece was born. So, your only question is, "Is this really the uncensored 1818 version? Because I've only seen one other verified version, and it's over twenty dollars in paperback. All the others claiming to be the 1818 version have been disproved." YES, as far as I can tell, it is. The only preface is Shelley's own original. There is no introduction, no commentary or editorial credits whatsoever. There are no illustrations, and the spelling and language have not been edited. Have a good thesaurus handy. So, here it is, the author's original script, no frills, for a bargain price. Which is exactly what I was looking for."

      "A classic! Romanticism through and through. One of Emily Brunt's masterpieces. Unlike modern day romances this one has a lot of sexual tones but does not get explicit. It lets you imagine and fill in without just bombarding you with erotica. I find this a huge plus."

      "I found The Picture of Dorian Gray to be deep and insightful. It creates a picture of what humanity is really like at it's darker side. There is a good lesson to be learned from the book."

      "The classic story can seem a little old lately. Still an interesting read, but not for the supernatural."

      "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a great classic book. I love the plot of a man that seems ordinary until he develops a split personality and makes him evil. The book is very character driven and interesting."

      "A Christmas Carol is always a true classic to read each year or whenever. It has me think about my own life and how I treat others. It makes me think about how I can help someone in need and not all the time be greedy or think that life should revolve around me. Everyone should read this even if it be your first time."

      "Howl, Kaddish and Other Poems is one of the best books in the Penguin English Library. "Howl" is iconic and the rest of the poetry in this book is equally breathtaking."

      "I've been wanting to read some classics, and I was curious what the best Penguin classics are. I think Jane Eyre is an undisputable choice. It is definitely a classic, and well loved over a long period of time. And, I haven't actually read it so I think it's time I do so. I'm really excited about this suggestion and can't wait to get the book."
