100 Classics Nintendo DS

The books on the game cartridge are no longer protected by copywrite. This makes the game cheap but means all the books are pretty old. Also I think it’s somewhat unfortunate that in the UK version they decided to include huge numbers of texts by Shakespeare and Dickens. There are actually 20 of Shakespeare’s plays included – 20! Not exactly easy reading and there are 13 books by Charles Dickens. I think it would have been nicer to include some other authors as they did for the US version.
