Description

The riveting novel that explores corruption and poverty in Chicago in he early 1900s. The book's portrayal of the meat packing industry ("they use everything of the pig except the squeal") so shocked the nation that sales of meat products fell by 50% and forced the government to implement food inspections. The book also exposes labor issues such as poor working conditions and the exploitation of women and children.

Simply Superb!

:
You guys are simply superb. I can't tell enough people about you but this! This is simply wonderful.
Make a request, and a no time flat, you have it!
I have been wanting (my brother and I) to read Dr. Jekyell & Mr. Hyde, The Secret Garden and The Jungle!!!! for ever!
but never had the time to do it. I am simply floored that you added this as quickly.

I can't wait to buy my brother his touch Friday (christmas) and load it for him.
Thank You for being great!
Ms. McIntosh

5/5 stars

Fantastic read

:
The Jungle is a great piece of timeless literature and a must read for anyone who has a bit of distrust for the capitalist system. The description of the book completely missed the point, yes the book talks about poor working conditions and the horridness of meat packing, but these were meant to question capitalism

0/5 stars

Bad interface

:
No option to change font size or anything the default font size is wicked small. Still no updates, iBooks is a hundred percent better, I honestly don't know why anyone would purchase this
