2.0 out of 5 stars Northanger Abbey paperback from World of Books UK

2.0 out of 5 stars Northanger Abbey paperback from World of Books UK, 9 Mar. 2013

This review is from: York notes on NORTHANGER ABBEY by Jane Austen (Paperback)
The written content of the book itself is exactly what was needed - York Notes is a reputable brand. Indeed, as a teacher, you will probably be familiar with the large - A4-ish - books that adorn the shelves of shops such as W H Smiths and so on. Those books are well-laid out with easy-to-locate and use sections covering: plot and action; characters; contexts and themes; language and structure; and, a 'grade booster' to finish off with. These cost around GBP6.

However, even though the book we were sent has analogous sections, it originates from 1989 and, being an ex-library book, has the original price tag on it which states quite clearly GBP1.99. We just paid GBP14.89, not including the delivery. Even taking into account inflation, 1989GBP2 comes to less than that. For nearly fifteen quid, I would have expected to receive something published this millennium at least but certainly laid out to modern standards for this type of book.

The value of this book, good condition though it might once have been but now, yellowed (browned) around the edges and with a peculiar, faint stain on page 30, I would expect to pay no more than five quid with free delivery. Certainly, if, instead of being on the Internet and sold through Amazon, it was in a local book shop, it would probably have trouble selling at that price.

So, the management summary:
Delivery speed - Acceptable;
Book content - Acceptable;
Price; P**s-taking rip-off - overpriced by a tenner for what it is.

Result: 2 stars and World of Books falls from my own personal list of trusted sellers.
