Excellent collection with hyperlinked table of contents.

Excellent collection with hyperlinked table of contents. This is the fifth or sixth collection that I purchased that were published by MobileReference and they all good.

Classic Literature

Like the other reviewer I also knew I could get these works for free but I'm lazy (something I'm sure mobilereferences counts on) but they are reasonable and timeless. I wanted to re-read Little Women because I'd just finished Geradine Brook's Pulitzer award winning book MARCH and found that I wanted to go back and have another look at Little Women. Thus far I've read a good deal of the collection without quite getting back to Little Women. These stories are timeless but written in a day and time when moralizing in stories was more important that it is today. Alcott's characters are inherently good, the misdeeds they commit seem to pale beside the misdeeds of today's teens. The miscreants always repent and are forgiven, and all is rosey and bright. Normally I don't care for a book unless someone dies in the first chapter, but these stories are a nice reminder of the kinder, gentler side of our human nature.


I know I could get all these books for free, but it was much easier for me to buy this. All the MobileReference versions I have tried are wonderful. With a working table of contents, you can go directly to the book you want to read.
