Our customer reviews

This is not the classic novel, it is a cheap and highly truncated "retelling" by some other author. As are all the other books in this laughably-titled "Real Reads" line. AVOID. And shame on you, bookdepository, for not making this clearer in the bibliographic data of this listing.show more
