A for me.
like compares noun of noun phrases.
D compares verb "read".

A. I see no error.
Here we are comparing 'read' - which i think is a noun here (correct me if i am wrong). So like should be used. C is out.
In D, it uses 'like', but by adding the 'does' in the end - makes it look more like an action!?

"seem" in B and C somehow shifts the meaning of the original sentence.
Using " unlike" in E is a little awkward to me.
D is wrong as others pointed out.
I choose A.

Guys can you please explain why D is not correct?

The second does in D is unnecessary. Like makes a perfect comparison, and an additional does adds an extra verb.

A is best.

I think it should be D.

A compares 'read' with 'Work'

'does' in D compared 'read' with 'read' of Apprentice work.
