2.0 out of 5 stars Great big chunks in at least one story missing.. 27 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stay away from this edition. Not only are there editorial errors throughout - I may have been able to ignore that as you can usually guess what menat to be said - but in 'The Double' chapter VIII starts with where the middle of chapter 9 in other books normally is - thus great big chunks are missed out of the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars No contents page but still worth it 27 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Contrary to the product description there is no contents page. So you have to manually find the start of each book and add a note. But for one pound it's hard to complain!

1.0 out of 5 stars For the translation, not the stories 30 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have only read Crime and Punishment from this collection and I will not read another. If you feel that saving a few bob by buying the collected works is worthwhile, offset this gain with spending hours reading a classic piece of storytelling in an absolutely dire translation. I thought myself rough and ready enough not to let the odd nuance slow me down but having read just one section in another translation I have discovered how much time I have wasted by being a skinflint. You get what you pay for and although the story still manages to convey the hardship and the dilemmas that FD wanted us to consider, why spend two weeks struggling with language that often doesnt make sense. All that said, the story is brilliant, I was suprised by the amount of humour I found in it and am completely hacked off with myself that, for a few quid, I have sullied my enjoyment of this great work.

3.0 out of 5 stars There is a contents page 11 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As noted, this massive tome appears to have no contents page! However, if you go to Cover and then page forward you can find it there (thank goodness!). However, it does leave one wondering if the production quality of the book is in doubt...

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for the novels, three for the format 13 Nov 2011
By RR Waller TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To rate this effectively, we need a dual star system, i.e. one for the stories which would, of course, be awarded five stars and one for the Kindle format, which I would give three stars. The idea of a downloadable complete works is excellent (in fact, when I first saw it, I was stunned into disbelief!) but, like any of these massive compilations, an effective way to navigate them is critical. Unlike a book in which a quick flick back to the contents will help, the Kindle format is not so easy and the lack of page numbers and chapters does not help although the percentage marker is useful. I have the original Kindle, so bear that in mind. I have little doubt that the newer model will have taken observations like this into account.

Reading one book from "cover to cover" is quite straightforward but a much more dynamic and interactive process is required for speedy movement through the collection, e.g. an effective active table of contents.

A great idea in concept but there is some way to go before it is effective in reality. To be fair, it was an early attempt at such a challenging and wonderful facility on a machine which has now improved and, no doubt, will continue to improve and be refined, especially now with the i (and other) Pad formats in competition. However, Kindle needs to do a little more than take over the Eformat files from publishers and I am sure it will. A good idea but ...

PS Computer users can soon become intolerant and fail to see what is actually in their grasp; the faster they work, the faster we want them to work. This complete works was free so beggars should not make too much fuss unless they are trying to improve future variants of what was a ground-breaking concept. All of Tolstoy, Austen, Dickens, Dostoyevsky, Shakespeare ... On a tiny little machine! All at once! Free! Who are you trying to kid!

What more can you say, for the price of a packet of biscuits you get a great tome of some of the greatest literature in the world from a master psychologist and brilliant literary master. Cheers.
