From the reviews:"The book under review evolved from various courses in algebraic geometry the author taught at Purdue University. It is intended for graduate level courses on algebraic geometry over C. ... Every section of each chapter ends with a series of exercises that complement the treated material, sometimes asking to give proofs of stated results. ... This work can serve as a textbook in an introductory course in algebraic geometry with a strong emphasis on its transcendental aspects, or as a reference book on the subject." (Pietro De Poi, Mathematical Reviews, June, 2013)"Masterful mathematical expositors guide readers along a meaningful journey. ... Every student should read this book first before grappling with any of those bibles. ... This is an advanced book in its own right ... . Arapura's knack for doing things in the simplest possible way and explaining the 'why' makes for much easier reading than one might reasonably expect. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (D. V. Feldman, Choice, Vol. 50 (5), January, 2013)"The book under review is a welcome addition to the literature on complex algebraic geometry. The approach chosen by the author balances the algebraic and transcendental approaches and unifies them by using sheaf theoretical methods. ... This is a well-written text ... with plenty of examples to illustrate the ideas being discussed." (Felipe Zaldivar, The Mathematical Association of America, June, 2012)"Book provides a very lucid, vivid, and versatile first introduction to algebraic geometry, with strong emphasis on its transcendental aspects. The author provides a broad panoramic view of the subject, illustrated with numerous instructive examples and interlarded with a wealth of hints for further reading. Indeed, the balance between rigor, intuition, and completeness in the presentation of the material is absolutely reasonable for such an introductory course book, and ... it may serve as an excellent guide to the great standard texts in the field." (Werner Kleinert, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1235, 2012)
