I discovered these Delphi complete works editions shortly after I was given a Kindle for Christmas and was looking for an inexpensive way to fill it. I've always enjoyed reading Victorian fiction and 'The Classics' and I'm slowly working my way through a degree course in English Literature. Add to that my complete lack of any regular disposable income whatsoever (Kindle books aren't cheap of course) and the fact that these 'classics' are mostly now in the public domain - (they can be downloaded / read free and legally) it made sense to fill up the Kindle for next to nothing with books I knew I would enjoy and that would also benefit my studies. So - if they are free to download, why pay Delphi? The answer is simple - most completely free versions of books I have seen have no contents or chapter guide and can be poorly formatted and prone to error. The people at Delphi have gone to great pains to gather together these exhaustive complete works collections all in one neat little download, with illustrations,full contents list - for the collection as a whole and for each individual book, easy navigation to your novel, short story, play, poem etc of choice and an excellent attention to chronology, plus plenty of relevant bonus texts, criticisms, author biographies etc. In my opinion, just a couple of pounds paid for this incredible labour of love is an unbelievable bargain. Delphi also have, via their own website, a very responsive, friendly and efficient customer service department who respond promptly and personally to any queries raised. Read more ›

For years I confused Anthony Trollope with Thomas Hardy, assuming Trollope to be, like Hardy, a writer of long, depressing books about life's unfairness. In fact he's not - his books are certainly long (as many Victorian novels were), but on the whole they seem to be rather jolly, and he has a light, humorous style. I bought this compilation after enjoying "The Three Clerks" (apparently his most autobiographical novel), and although I'm finding his Barsetshire novels a bit less lively, I'm sticking with it.

This enormous compilation (571,000 Kindle locations!) is well put together, with a comprehensive table of contents and a mountain of material (sketches, biographies, travel writing) beyond Trollope's novels. It's worth the purchase price to have them all 'bound' together, saving you the time of tracking them down individually. However it does also highlight some drawbacks to using these huge files on Kindle. You can't tell how far you are through a book because the percentage indicator shows your progress through the whole compilation, and if you forget which novel you're reading (which can happen if you leave it for a while) it's not easy to find out. Perhaps Amazon could introduce individual book titles and percentages within compilations (if it hasn't already in its updated Kindle format).

Overall though this volume is excellent value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 16 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I doubt that this edition would satisfy a professional Trollope scholar and I doubt that it was meant to. And, yes, you can pick most, if not all, of it up from the Internet in the public domain. But if, like me, you are an enthusiastic reader of the Victorian novel and want to extend your range on the cheap without having to trawl for the individual works, this collection seems very good indeed. The layout seems fine for navigation as well.

One thing which I have noticed is that, although this works well on my PC Kindles, the file is encrypted so will not transfer to the Kindle-compatible reader on my Blackerry playbook. But I guess that is par for the course for purchased Kindle books so I really cannot complain (although I think I just did).

There may be room at the margin for the odd quibble about 'completeness', but for the vast majority of readers this collection offers as much (and probably considerably more) Trollope than you would want in a lifetime. I shall certainly be purchasing a few more of these collections. I might even buy a proper Kindle to read them on, rather than my laptop screen!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money 3 Sept. 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
One of the benefits of being a Kindle user is that you can get hold of many, many older books for very little cash. I like this series of classics because they're well-formatted, without too many of the dreadful typographical glitches that can bedevil other editions. Trollope is one of my favourite novelists, so buying this book was a no-brainer. The only thing I'd improve is the navigation - this, like others I've bought, doesn't include those 'markers' along the bottom bar on screen, which personally I find useful.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Imagine my surprise when I found that the 'Complete Works' behaves as if it were one book! There is no list of the books. The only option appears to be starting at the first book, which automatically opens, and reading through the lot.

A most useful collection of Trollope's work, including some works which are not easy to get in book form. Very helpful to have it all in such a compact form
