Te with recommendations of the best editions and translations for every genre from the most enticing crime and punishment to love sex heroes and anti heroes not to mention all the classics of comedy and satire horror and mystery and many other literary genres With featu First off I wanna say how much I love the cover of this book ie Marilyn Monroe reading Ulysses as it showcases a rare look at someone who was considered a dumb blonde than a smart woman all her life so kudos to thatNow the book itself it's a really good list for anyone looking for a start into the classics It doesn't just stop at English Literature but also diversifies itself with literature from Japanese Russian etc It's also categorized into different genres but what really takes the cake is the mention of Screen Adaptations at the end of the summaries for comparison What I didn't like though was there is a severe lack of South Asian and Middle Eastern literature I think I only saw 1 of each in this book There also some authorsbooks that I feel shouldn't have been mentioned but that's just probably meAnyhow highly recommended for anyone looking to expand their bookshelves reading and movie knowledge
