A novel by the author of 1984 about a man determined to reject middle-class values who finds living in noble poverty more difficult than expected.   Gordon Comstock despises the materialism and shallowness of middle-class life—the worship of money, the striving for dull, stuffy respectability. To live up to his ideals, he quits his lucrative position as an advertising copywriter and devotes himself to poetry and other high-minded pursuits.   But low-paid part-time employment and a constant shortage of cash is not exactly conducive to creativity and happiness. The stress even causes him to lash...

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this bookseller/bookselling based on manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this bookseller/bookselling now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Mariner Books () has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. This bookseller/bookselling has positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This bookseller/bookselling has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that it's gonna stay the same a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from May 11, 2020 to May 20, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this bookseller/bookselling was $10.84, and the lowest price point was $1.99. The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, this product also has a lot of volatility in price. It's likely there are multiple sellers with varying offers, or is subject to seasonal pricing. It also may indicate that it goes on sale often!

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $13.83 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Make sure Mariner Books is a brand you can trust

Mariner Books doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other bookseller/bookselling brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options you might want to check out
