Q & As

John Lewis Abacus 5 Shelf Bookcase 4.4 5 29 29
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
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
Better than you average flatpack A really nice looking set of shelves. I wanted them for my study and struggled to find shelves that would accommodate box files etc. These are roomy and plenty deep enough for my largest files. Five shelves give ample adjustment, although bear in mind that middle shelf is fixed. I put them together on my own but I wouldn't recommend it. Instructions are a bit vague - make very sure you have the unit the right way up before you fix the middle shelf. Yes - that IS the voice of bitter experience! 29 September 2014
Neat, good looking and capacious Daunting when first taken out of the packaging but actually quite easy to erect by an elderly grandfather and a teenage grand daughter. Very pleased with it 09 July 2014
Very pleased with this reasonably priced unit. Thought the quality might be a little under par but very pleasantly surprised. Would buy other products in the range. 03 June 2014
Solid bookcase, good size Delivery was good, bookcase itself is packed well and once assembled is a solid construction. The middle shelf is structural and is fixed in the middle and for the other two shelves there are about 6 different points above and below the middle shelf to stick the others in so not masses of adjustment on the shelf height, although for books this suited me fine. The shelf holding attachments are a bit counter-intuitive so a careful look at the picture is needed to fit them the right way round first time (or you can stick them on as you think they should go like me and then take them off again). A good size for our house - pleased that there is such a range of different sized book cases so I could find one that fitted well. 27 January 2014
Change in manufacturing - veneer on underside of shelves I have a couple of these already from a couple of years ago and I'm really pleased with them. Easy to assemble, sturdy and look really good as well. I have recently ordered another and the shelves are no longer the same, there is no oak veneer on the underside of the shelves which they previously had. It's just a solid brown colour underneath. Not necessarily a big issue, but it looks unfinished to me and I'll just know it's there! 18 April 2013
Perfect This bookcase is of excellent quality, extremely sturdy and reasonably priced. I am delighted with it, it took about an hour / hour and a half to put together and now looks great in my room. Highly recommend as a cheap (ish) but high quality bookcase. Pay a little bit more then Ikea stuff and reap the rewards in my opinion. 26 March 2013
