Es confuso porque son nombres de libros en su idioma original, igual y aquí los conoces o los has leido pero con la traducción. Es una buena idea

Por favor sea considerado y se abstengan de hacer comentarios a ti mismo a la publicidad y todos los individuales. Si tienes algo inteligente que decir, sólo entonces se debe comentar. Como ustedes saben, es muy grosero con la gente molesta. Gracias.

Can't believe that anybody wouldn't get the idea at first glance.

Perfect for the client, wonder how many titles it took to go through to make 'em work

If you read books/ buy them, then you'd get it. However, I think this may have been done before...

The two name's of classics are not really gelling the way intended and hence failed. Its clear.

I really like this campaign. I think its great for the Target audience. I like how it has a 5 second incubation till you get it. I agree that the titles could have been a little more cleaver and a little more recognizable, but I think over all it works.
