Conclusion: The market for electronic book readers is pretty competitive. Even the iPod offers an app that lets you download and read classic books--for free. But 100 Classic Books gives you a hundred books that are worth reading without any immediate need to mess around with Wi-Fi. It's no alternative to the Kindle, but it's a relaxing, hassle-free way to re-visit a few of the better books you read throughout your school career.
Excerpt: I am really not sure if 100 Classic Books is a game or not. It is on a Nintendo DS cartridge, but to me it is not really a game. It is the natural growth of this hand held machine to something more. I am absolutely astounded that Nintendo could put this many classics on one cartridge. Books like A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, The Time Machine and many more are included.
Excerpt: When the Nintendo DS first came out everyone was excited about the world of possibilities it opened up. Indeed, as time went by players saw some truly fascinating and innovative game titles that redefined the videogame experience. So far, however, the possibilities the DS could offer outside of the gaming universe haven’t been exploited.
Summary: 100 Classic Books transforms the Nintendo DS into a library of timeless literature, highlighted by 100 works from authors such as William Shakespeare, Jules Verne, Jane Austen, Mark Twain and more.
Summary: 100 Classic Books is one of the best ideas Nintendo has had in a while. While it is no Kindle killer, this cart is a great alternative to the more expensive e-readers out there, collecting some of the most famous works in the English language for a fraction of the price you would normally pay for their electronic or paper equivalents.
The themes and content of these masterpieces vary greatly.
