4.0 out of 5 stars Great Author, Great Novels 11 Sept. 2013
By zurga

'Delphi Complete Works' is a great range of classics, and at less than £2, are almost given away for free. In Kindle form, they are a lot easier for me to read than on paper: no weight, so can carry it about, no book marker which always gets lost, and kindle screen has the advantage over the normal computer screen that it can be read in bright outdoors (in fact the brighter the better!). I have just one criticism of the kindle production: Most of the time one cannot tell which chapter one is reading, and how far one has progressed through the book. All kindle does is to show the percentage of text read, which is normally not a lot of use, but in the case of 'Complete Works' is completely useless as the figure is calculated in relation to the complete work rather than the book.

Please Kindle, if you are listening, give us a status line like "Chapter X of Y; Page P of Q"

5.0 out of 5 stars Version 4 5 Dec. 2012
Delphi Classics again at its best. Complete and well organised into section such as novels and short stories. Great value for money. Now in colour with Kindle Fire. Easy to use with contents pages and using Kindle features search, zoom and dictionary. Updated without two poems wrongly put in.

3.0 out of 5 stars good books, let down by the table of contents 23 Nov. 2014
By Mrs
Verified Purchase
I tend to agree that it is difficult to navigate around the book. The table of contents lists the title of each book, followed by chapters 1 to N, but not saying which book each chapter is in. Since most of the main novels contain forty or fifty chapters (possibly more, I haven't counted), the listing shown is pretty uninformative. I have so far used the search facility to get to the beginning of the book I wanted to read, but this is somewhat time-consuming. It would be much more helpful, I think, if the table of contents was nested - that is, it listed the books as main headings, with the possibility of expanding a more detailed list of chapters under each main title, if the reader wished to expand the display.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great books 18 April 2013
By Hylari
Verified Purchase
The works of George Eliot are superb, and to have them all at this low price is great. Sadly they are let down by some bad typing errors and dreadful punctuation, so bad that at times the passages are meaningless. I often had to reread some passages several times to try and make sense of them. These kinds of errors spoil reading pleasure.
