Customer Reviews of 501 Must Read Books


Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Own This book is a must-have if you love books, read books, enjoy books or collect books. It takes a scholarly, insightful, honest and poetic look at many of the books one has grown to love as well as some books that one may not be familiar with. There are also notes on the authors and other fascinating bits of information. It is beautifully illustrated and printed on fine paper. It is hard to believe that such an interesting and informative book on books can be had for such a low price. I am an incurable bibliophile and this has to be the best buy I've come across in recent memory. At this price it will soon be out of stock - so don't delay. And it's a hardcover as well. OMG!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What Should be Read Next? Having worked through the seven lessons on creative writing contained in "The Virginia Woolf Writers' Workshop", and duly impressed by the advice given, the suggestion was followed to identify novels from different genres and authors; as examples, to guide an eager writer. This book was a lucky find. It provides quality reviews of 501 publications, describing the genre and circumstances of the authors' work so that a judgment might be made as to the relevance of the novel to a student of creative writing. This is a most efficient and effective source to answer the question, "what should be read next?"
