5-0 out of 5 stars perfect condition
The book didn't take long to come in and when it did it was in perfect condition. Trust worthy site and thank you to the shipper for being trustworthy!!

2-0 out of 5 stars not sure what all the buzz is about...
I'm not myself at all sure why this book gets so much buzz. I mean, could any story be more boring? It's just about a family of ruthless animal-killers who get shipwrecked on a non-existant island. They either slay or keep animals as pets and give them a lot of stupid names like "lightfoot" and I don't remember what else, but, mark my words, they're all stupid! This book is pretty plotless and is full of a lot of scenery and activity descriptions without really telling a story of any sort. This book really reads like a documentary on animal-murder and taking brutal advantage of the natural course of things happening on that "fantasy island" that they're living on. I'm quite surprised that a family like this even has the gall to pray so much, the way they constantly disrupt the ecosystem of the island they are on. I'm surprised the "god" that they pray to doesn't give them what they truly deserve. Well... the answer is easy. That's because this is a story, why else? It's just fiction.

Truthfully, I had to force myself to finish this book. At some point it just got too repetitive with all of the endless animal slayings and domestications. This is definitely not a book for kids (at least the unabridged version certainly isn't). On the other hand, it may be good for putting kids to sleep quickly, I suppose. This book is better-suited for people who like nature videos or watch the discovery channel.

1-0 out of 5 stars Everyman's Children's Classics Screwed Up This TIme
Everyman's Children's Classics really SERIOUSLY screwed this up.If you are going to advertise a classic, you should publish the original unabridged version.Otherwise what's the point.I got taken in because I figured the series would respect the books.It was beautifully produced and a quality product for a mere physical object, but I felt totally ripped off when I opened it to see that it was NOT the original book.Now I have to figure out who to give it to.Certainly, no-one I really like.

What a disappointment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great reading material for 6-7th graders
I have purchased this book for my homeschooling 6th grader as a reading comprehension material. The language level of this book is 6th to 7th grader material with good amount of challenging vocabs.I liked the introduction of this book a lot. It gave a lot of "behind a scene" story of the author and also, it is a perfect example of a great book report.I strongly recommend to read the introduction, then start reading the book.You will enjoy this book from different perspective.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic from the 19th century
I originally read this when I was 10. Diffucult going for a 10 year old, yes. But it was worth it. It's stayed with me my entire life. It's still a great story. All the 1 and 2 star reviews don't surprise me. The mentality of the average American today is laughable. If it doesn't have the story line of some blockbuster movie, it's boring. If 19th century man's scientific knowledge and need to survive is not rewritten to conform to their 21st century, tree hugging, animal rights, urban yuppie/hipster mind set, then it's considered barbaric. If the story doesn't move along at the frantic pace of the latest xbox or wii rendering, then the author is a hack. It's just amazing how poorly educated and developed adults and children of the last couple of generations are. In regards to reading a book, and understanding the context and timeframe it was written in. My suggestion to the mental midgets: stop reading books, your not furthering your own appreciation or knowledge of literature. Turn your HDTV/cable back on for a few hours until your hand recovers from the marathon xbox session. After this your mind should be numb enough to stop writing book reviews. ... Read more
