Japanese Fairy Tales

by Yei Theodora Ozaki

Its a good collection of the old tales of Japan, and no they are not all the same like the one person said. However I have a problem with the story of Issun-Boshi being left out. Its another major classic and played a huge role in the game Okami.

Great Expectations

by Charles Dickens

Horrid. Like the previous review said, it is just a lesson you are taught at a very early age in this modern culture. I could not bare to read this book. I suffered through thinking it would become better. It did not. I can tell why mostly everyone loves it so much and that is because of how everything and everyone gets tied back into the story in the end. Overall it was an awful strung out story that is learned at a fairly young age. 400+ pages to tell you money doesn't buy happiness is excessive. Dickens failed.

Wow! It is really so fascinating to me that this book was first published in 1883! This book is pretty graphic...so be prepared...good stuff!

Emma McChesney & Co

by Edna Ferber

The Sex and the City of the Edwardian Era! Some of the dialogue is dated-sounded, of course, but that's part of the series charm -- trendy and edgy for its time, Emma the Charming, Single Career Woman is the Carrie of her time, only much too business savvy to go into debt over a pair of shoes.

Love it!
