Classics is a great collection of 13 classic novels presented in a fantastically easy to read interface. Great user interaction with a fantastic page turning animation that you have to see to believe.

The list of books includes the following classics -- with more books to be added later.

- A Christmas Carol (illustrated)
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
- Gulliver's Travels
- The Time Machine
- Call of the Wild
- The Metamorphosis
- Paradise Lost
- Hound of the Baskervilles
- Alice in Wonderland (illustrated)
- Flatland (illustrated)
- 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
- Robinson Crusoe
- The Jungle Book

While the design is fantastic, the page turning animation is wonderful, it's also very easy to read these classics, even on the small screen. The one little annoyance is that the page turning does get a little old after a while. Would love to get another way, hopefully quicker way, to change pages.

Overall this is a great app. If you like classic novels this is a great way to read them on the go. Great interface, great books, and a great price.
