For what I paid (forty on sale) this thing is amazing. I really love the height, the color, the overall size, and the asymmetrical design. It's not incredibly sturdy, but I never planned to use it for books. The finish isn't perfect, either.
Please note that the package weighs 72 pounds! FedEx would not even carry it up the six steps to my porch. I put it together by myself, with no power tools. The instructions are straightforward and every piece has a letter on it that corresponds with the pictures. It took maybe two hours and was actually a fun challenge - like a puzzle!
In short, it's a great value for the price, and exactly what I needed. If you want something that looks high-end, this is not the bookcase for you. But I love it.
