    2. La nica queja que tengo es que la letra es muy peque a, as que acab comprando la edici n de The penguin English Library Evidentemente, es cosa de preferencia personal, este por el precio est muy bien.


    3. Mi hijo lo necesita para el curso que viene y es lo que ped an, con el ISBN no hay problema de equivocaci n.


    4. The letter size is so minuscule that can t be read As I bougth several books, when I went to read it, it was too late to take back the book.


    5. El libro es grande y pesado, pero el texto ocupa la mitad de la p gina, con una letra muy peque a.Como si fuera la fotocopia de un libro de bolsillo.Eso si, es muy barato


    6. No es la edici n que necesito ISBN 9788853005403 Edici n Vicens Vives de 128 p ginas,Esta es otra que tiene m s de quinientas p ginas.


    7. Lo compre pensando que iba a ser una adaptaci n de la novela original, pero finalmente ha resultado ser la novela completa Muy contento por el precio y por la obra.
