The Kama Sutra of Vatsayayana

by Richard Burton

The Kama Sutra--what can I say? Hm...OK. Remaining impartial, I call this one a classic. The Kama Sutra informs and (I speak personally) amuses the reader. As the 'notes' portion up there says (look), it's a "standard work on love in the Sanskrit literature"; I think that's what should entice everyone to read it. 3 stars. No hype.

Daddy-Long-Legs

by Jean Webster

Meant for young girls. Some will find it predictable, disappointingly minimal, or forgettable; possibly all those three. So-so, at best.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Doyle's stories have aged; younger readers who crave big suprises, action, action, and more action will be disappointed with this collection. But if you're a voracious reader, or you appreciate every little Of course! moments, then downloading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes will be worthwhile for you. 3 stars, to avoid misleading anyone. d=

PS

Smart, and very Brit. I have Doyle's entire collection at home, illustrations and all, and I keep it in a treasure chest. =D

The Art of War

by Sun Tzu

Ageless work, brilliant man. Sun Tzu's Art of War is worth all the praise. A must-read. Keep a small book of this in your pocket, and you'll never encounter an enemy you can't beat. d= Just use your "common sense"? Of course, everyone should; but in our time, when stupid is hot and noble leadership is, like, so yesterday, don't we all need something to awake the inner tactician in us? 5 stars.
