Reviews - What do customers think about Victor Hugo (Cuadernillos de Poesia) (Spanish Edition)?
A misprinted copy? Sep 16, 2009
I greatly appreciate having these four major plays by the amazing Victor Hugo in a good English translation. The copy I received, however, included none of the introductions announced on the copy and, indeed, no title page or copyright page. Instead, it includes two copies of each play, for a hefty 800 pages.
double printing too Jun 10, 2009
My copy was complete as well, but printed twice. 398 pages printed twice. No notes or introduction. So this must be a defective printing.
Double the value! Apr 22, 2009
Expecting to get 4 plays from Victor Hugo I was suprised that my edition contained 8 plays! Only problem with that is that it was 4 plays printed twice each. The promised introduction was lacking also. There are no notes accompanying the text in this version so buyers may want to check other options for Hugo's plays. The content is quite entertaining so don't be entirely put off.
