A Review for Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is a classic. This is definitely one classic that won't put teens to sleep. Its quick and rhyming pace and interesting plot set this story apart from other classics. The dynamic main character, named Faust, and his deal with the devil, takes the reader on a long ride through the human soul. Originally a German story, this book has been translated into Old English. This gives the story an older and more sophisticated feel to it. Goethe is described as a great author and poet and this story is just another example of that

  1. I love to read also, but unfortunately, don't have as much time durng the school year to read. During school breaks and the summer I am always reading a book. Since school started this year I have read a book about the Amish people, The Pursuit of Honor, and The Case for Christ. I bought The Blindside recently and was given Dear John for Valentines so am anxious for spring break so I can read these. I enjoy historical based novels, mysteries, and CIA or legal type books the most.
