Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Easy to put together and looks lovely. Good value for money. 08 September 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well made product Good solid construction...Well packaged...Good assembly instructions..., 18 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sturdy boobcase Good sturdy bookcase, delivered very quickly and easy to put together. Only issue for me ( perhaps I am being a bit thick) but the description says the unit is wood veneer and that the shelves are "wood" for which I assumed solid wood and not wood veneer , I think the description should be amended to read shelves wood veneer, I.e veneer over chipboard. Would have been 5 stars with solid shelves ! For all that it's a strong and useful unit. 17 July 2015

Rated 3 out of 5 by John Lewis Abacus 5 Shelf Bookcase We purchased this bookcase to complement other items of furniture bought from the Abacus range previously. Unfortunately, the bookcase is a different colour to the other items we own. Really disappointed. 28 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great! OK the back of it isn't real solid Oak but that doesn't seem to matter much. It is strong and sturdy and looks like a quality piece of furniture. Worth the money. Would recommend. 20 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value This bookcase was delivered exactly when I was told and placed where I wanted it. It was simple to put together and looked exactly like the picture. It is a solid and robust piece of furniture which does everything it said. Well worth the money. 23 December 2014
