South Shore Gascony 4-Shelf Bookcase is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I should have stuck with the majority of reviews, in that this piece did t get very many positive ones, but I thought I’d see for myself as were all subject to our own opinions. Bad choice. As some reviews state, this is cheaply made, MDF (particle board) with a cheap folded-in-the-box cardboard backing that applies to the back of the bookshelf. It was literally folded, and you unfold it , flatten it out, hammer it onto the back with about 30 nails, and cross your fingers that you don’t perforate the face of the bookshelf walls in the process, or end up with gaps between the backing and the bookshelf body. Very cheap. Parts don’t align the best so you will end up with small gaps. The plastic clips and shiny galvanized screws can be easily seen against the white finish. I was going to use this in the family room if it were a decent piece but it’s going to go into a playroom or kids room, out of sight for the most part. I’d return it but realizing it’s subpar quality about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way into building it I was already committed, so I didn’t want to deal with disassembling, repackaging and coordinate with UPS to get it returned. I’d save your trouble by not getting as far as I did and suggest not ordering it. Spend a little more on something a lot better. However, don’t knock QVC, it’s the product. QVC is still my go-to for other products, just not this piece.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not impressed The quality is not that great. Too much money for what it is. I would have sent it back but it's too much trouble and too much money to ship it back. I wanted it for a spare bedroom but will probably end up using it in the basement for storage. The assembly directions are not the greatest either but I figured it out. Of course with most "assembly required" items the holes didn't line up all that well. Save your money on this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy, stylish, but yes - particle board I gave this four stars because this is a very sturdy and stylish bookcase. It took me about an hour or so to assemble. The pieces are made of particle board, but they are very thick and sturdy, which made up for it. Once put together, it held all of my books and some decorative items (shown in the photo). There was a slight ding in some of the pieces, but they are barely noticeable. The backing is cardboard, but it looks nice once placed on. This is not too high or too low, but just the perfect height for storing things like books and other artifacts. I can even store items on top of the bookshelf (see attached photo)
