Review : First of all, I want to thank M.C. Frank for sending me a review copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
I first loved the book when I saw the cover. Seriously, isn’t it a gorgeous one ? Then, I’ve read the synopsis and immediately understood that all my favorite classic authors would be finally reunited in one book. I couldn’t leave behind the opportunity to fall in love with them and their characters once again. That’s why, as soon as I got the copy, I couldn’t help but read it. It was such a pleasure to rediscover my favorite stories such as Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights or The Importance of Being Earnest. But I have also read for the first time some beautiful love declarations like Evelina by Frances Burney and The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emma Orczy. All these declarations make me want to re-read the books or discover the whole story. Honestly, this collection is like candy for bibliophiles. This contains all the most beautiful love declarations and the strongest and the most wonderful characters that we can find in literature. Moreover, there are stories for everyone as there are not only novel but also theater excerpts. This is the perfect blend to discover or rediscover great authors and their most important works.
I really encourage you to read this one !
