I had a subscription for 6 months to this box, and twice in that time they sent me duplicate books in consecutive months. I notified them the first time and got no response. Several of the books I've received have been good ones (one I even now have 2 copies of!), but others are clearly bargain bin castoffs. Also, I chose the scifi option, and I'd argue that several of the books I've gotten are decidedly fantasy. There's just not enough of a deal here for me to keep stockpiling multiple copies of books I don't want.
i am always happy with this box but not now i never got my dvd with the books
While the idea of this box sounded perfect the execution could use some work. The price is great and it shipped super quick but I was unhappy about the books I received. The fantasy book I got was the third in a trilogy and the science fiction book I got was the tenth in a series. I think that if series are included it should only be the first book. There no way I'm going to the trouble of getting the first books in a series just so I can read the books I got in this box.
The month I bought had two books and a movie, which is typical for each month. They don't go by themes, but rather send out random books. The problem? Because they send random books (that clearly were from a discount place) it doesn't mean you will get the first in a series. I actually received the third in a trilogy and the tenth in a series so it wasn't really helpful for me. Sure, I only had to pay like $30CAD and got a lot of stuff, but now I have to go out and find the other books in the series to be able to read it! That's not a bargain for your buck.
I’ve been subscribing for over a year, waited through a year of bad movies and so-so books for something great. I didn’t receive my March 2018 box and all of my emails have gone ignored. I’m canceling because of this.
