Edward Morgan Forster OM CH (1 January 1879 – 7 June 1970), known as E. M. Forster, was an English novelist, short story writer, essayist and librettist. Many of his novels examined class difference and hypocrisy in early 20th-century British society, notably A Room with a View (1908), Howards End (1910), and A Passage to India (1924), which brought him his greatest success. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 16 different years. --Este texto se refiere a una edición agotada o no disponible de este título..

Inexpensive, Easy to Negotiate, A Joy to Re-Read Them I'm delighted with this collection which I downloaded yesterday for the price of £1.50 for the two volumes. The books are arranged alphabetically in order of author, and you can select any book and any chapter within any book - a far cry from the early Kindle collections where you had to basically start at the front and work on from there. The big bonus for me is being able to read these old classics in a larger font - it really does make them less hard going especially if, like me, you have a visual disability. Could not be happier.
Great value. An excellent collection for a knock down price. So good to have these classics in one place at last .
A true literary feast Any lover of the classics could not help but be thrilled by this cornucopia of some of the classic works of literature. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves turning a page.
50 great books I have read some of these books but it was great to catch up on ones I had missed. You can't beat the classics
How can you complain? Both volumes contain 100 of the best literary works in history for £1.50 There's enough content here for maybe 2000+ hours of reading time, that's roughly 80 days. All of the greatest novels that have helped shaped our current culture and all of modern storytelling in all forms. All for the price of a saver menu double cheeseburger.
Everyone should read these. Wonderful variety
Amazing value for money Absolutely worth 75p to get these masterpieces. Some I've read but many I haven't. Made a good start on Little Women which I'd never read. Recommend this purchase
Brilliant I have always wanted these books but was never able to afford them. To get 50 Classic books for 75p is absolutely amazing. Thank you Amazon.
Great What's not to like. 50 classics to read when you want for 1.5 pence a book
Wonderful old masterpieces! I liked it all
