I was expecting the book with 10 "fragments" and 24 stories to read. But instead, I received this book of about 6 stories, in summarized modern English form, more or less like cliff note version of the 6 stories.

I wish the seller or Amazon would have specified the version and what to expect at the time I was buying. In this form that I received, I won't even give it to an elementary school student to read as it has no style nor beauty in the language. And, the stories might have some moral lessons, the correct book version would have told it much better. I felt the urge to report this as I don't want other buyers to fall into the same trap.

I should start by saying this is the first review I've ever written. I couldn't give this 1 star because of course the actual story is a wonderful classic, but the physical copy was abysmal. I'm about half way through and over a hundred pages have fallen out now.

Every time I turn the page a new one falls out. I've finally managed to stop more pages from falling out now only by opening up to the page I'm on just enough to read it but not nearly all the way. I'm very disappointed in the quality of the manufacturing of this book. I actually had to order this book for a college course.

I searched for it using the ISBN code. The book got here very quick and was in perfect shape. So I had to use a classmate's book to read those for exams. However, if you are getting this for fun for yourself, it should be a great copy. One great thing about this copy in comparison to others is it actually has each of the stories in both Old English and Modern English, which is extremely cool! This is a review if the Everyman's Library copy, for which there is no "look inside" feature. This is not a modern translation, but rather the original Middle English.

If that's your bag, this book is for you. But most people will not be looking for the literature professor version, I'm guessing. Don't buy the Kindle version. The formatting is thoroughly broken and can't be read. Go to Amazon. Back to top.
