Consistent with other reviews, this two volume set is very heavy and well bound. The images are excellent, and it is easy to become immersed in the cartoons! I love this Far Side collection not only for current use but as a book we will have in our family for the years to come. If you are a fan of Far Side, you'll love it!!

I wasn't sure about ordering from this site, but it had the quickest delivery time and was comparably priced to amazon.ca. The books arrived quickly and were in perfect condition — there were no extra fees at delivery, as promised. Be aware that these books are going to give your arms a serious workout!

I ordered this set along with "Calvin and Hobbes" and picking this collection up alone felt like lifting a young child. It's a terrific set that contains everything you'd want as well as a peculiar introduction, insight into the history of Larson and his strip, and of course the cartoons themselves, ALL OF THEM! I was worried when the delivery arrived as the deliverer honked and I saw a huge box in the back of the car. Lifting it was a chore since it arrived packaged with the "Calvin and Hobbes" box set. They weren't very secure in the box and were sliding around in the package. The box nearly broke apart when I picked it up. That would be my only complaint, the flimsy way Overstock shipped the items. I'm surprised they arrived without any damage. But they were perfect. Make sure you've got a table to set the volumes on while reading as your lap and arms will get tired if you choose to just sit and flip through it for any extended amount of time. An excellent purchase.
Just the weight and sie of this book will tell you the quality of the product. Evrything is chronological and detailed. The cartoons are of such clarity; it looks as if you are seeing a proof set. Buy it and keep it for a life time. THANKS OSTK
This is a good price on a great box set. If you are considering purchasing this box set, I would definitely recommend it. The shipping on the item was a little slow and the packaging was not great, I am surprised it wasn't damaged. The product itself is awesome.
Ok there were a few Far Side cartoons I didn't "get" but they are, bar none, the best and funniest strip ever published. Every single page contained a good laugh and the occasional explanations by Mr. Larson and letters from readers were fantastic. I think this collection is worth it's weight in gold!
This is the ultimate Far Side collection. It contains every cartoon and many that were never released. The two volumes are very well made, but are heavy. The two books arrived in the original shrink wrap and were in perfect condition, which is important for a collector's item.
