This is a Masterpiece Collection Book Club Edition publication. We have created an after chapter template for notes, character names, and general summary of the chapter. This helps the reader retain the information better. These books are great for not only bookclub readers. They are great for students, and casual readers as well. Having your own notes to draw from helps when writing a book report. Having a bookclub discussion about several chapters. It is great help remembering characters and their signifigance later in the book. These are not cheat books! We have not done the work for you. You have to read the book and you need to take the notes. Using the templates at the end of each chapter will give you a greater understanding of the work. I love to read and have read thousands of books, but I still forget things that happened hundreds of pages before. These books enable the reader to have a point of reference . Turning the corner of the page and highlighting can help, but returning to your own words helps so much more.
