Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jojoke I've bought three!
I had a wider and slim one I bought last year and have been so pleased with them I purchased this one as well!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CS87 Defective Product
The bookshelf arrived in a decent amount of time. The workman ship would have been fine if it were not defective. Directions were straight forward and easy to understand. Biggest complaint is that the parts were defective. The back wooden panels did not fit into the side panel as described in the directions. The side panel holes (in the wood) for the back panel inserts (on the back panels) to stick into were spaced improperly. Awful and cannot be assembled properly due to poor workmanship and quality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DeeH Attractive and all wood
An all-wood bookcase to use for books and display special items without overpowering a small room was my goal with this piece. It worked out perfect. My only disappointment is the finish has more orange (I purchased Honey Oak) in it than expected, but I can live with it. I feel like I got a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lolarich Excellent value
I read previous reviews prior to my purchase - they were all very helpfull. These book cases (I got two) are, simply, an excellent value. I had some difficulty in putting the first together - but realized it was my problem - because when I got to the second one it went together quickly. Perfect purchase for my needs. Advice: read reviews and take with some salt re: ease of assembly - does not take a "carpenter" - just take your time and be 'smart'. I looked in many local stores for what I needed - simple bookcases - found them to be way over priced - and here I discovered good quality (real solid wood) for a great price......I do indeed recommend these units.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by finaleyes Affordable Mission-style Bookcase
I bought one of these bookcases about 10 years ago. It is still standing solid. When I needed another bookcase, I went online and searched for Mission-style bookcase and found the very same kind (or at least I was hoping it was exactly the same). As you can tell from the photo, it IS the same, and I set them up side by side so it looks almost like one case.
I had a little trouble putting it together; it would have been very simple with two people. The directions were good, the parts were all there, and everything fit together just the way it was supposed to.
For the price, I don't see how you could do any better. If I need a third bookcase, this one's going to be it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by abthree Nice Bookshelf, Good Price
This unit is attractive, easy to assemble and reasonably strong. As seems to be true of the whole line, the wrench provided for assembly is of the same brass material as the screws, and so must be handled with care to last through the whole assembly process. It should be replaced with a steel tool.
The manufacturer claims to use all plantation (as opposed to wild) hardwood, and if true, this is a plus. Quality control could be better: I purchased six units, and saw more dents than I expected (none too serious, though.)
Home Decorators shipping charges are high for an online merchant, and should be revised. There are no breaks for large orders, that I could see.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by appletree Not the best workmanship.
The bookshelf looks nice now. BUT my husband had to re-drill the holes for the top because it originally did not overhang evenly on both sides! Also, there are 6 holes on the top shelf braces which should have had little plugs to hide them, as there are for the side holes where the screws went in. The stain was obviously sprayed onto the side walls, but places were missed. One shelf started to crack when he screwed in the screw. So...I do like the style, but the workmanship could have been better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by curleyq Happy, but fingers hurting..
I ordered this bookcase after receiving a smaller version so I would have matching pieces. I like the openness of the mission style, as I have a small apt. and it gives the illusion of more space. Assembly is not too easy; the enclosed hexigonal screw driver was stripped before I finished the first half, and is hard on the fingers. Luckily I kept the one from the last time, so I was able to finish. One shelf was slightly damaged on the edges, but I was able to work around it. All things considered, I am happy with my purchase, the quality of the product and value for the money spent.
