3.0 out of 5 stars OK but read this before buying... 17 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This Theasaurus does not search by clicking menu and 'Search this Book' as you might expect.
you will need to click menu then 'Go to..' then 'Table of Contents' then select the first letter of the word you wish to look up and then scroll through a list of possible words to look up.

The above mentioned method of serching is slow and frustrating but once you have found the word the content is excellent.

hope this helps someone as it took me a while to figure out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Searching 23 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Both the other reviewers are right. I agree, a thesaurus one cannot search is useless, but it is possible to search by word. I'd say it is easier using the Kindle for PC application, but it is possible using the Kindle itself.
On my Kindle for PC application, I find this easily searchable by any word, e.g. 'difficulty'. I used the Kindle for PC application's search box to type in 'difficulty' and a panel opened up with various shades of meaning so one could pick whichever was more appropriate for the task in hand.
On my Kindle, I found one has to go to the table of contents, where one finds either 'list of words by category' and 'a-z index'. Clicking the first gives you what one could call the ideas, e.g. 'means of communicating ideas - natural means'. Clicking the a-z index gives you exactly that, clicking on D gives you a list of words beginning with 'D' which you can page through to find 'difficulty'. Clicking on that takes you to the desired 'difficulty' with its myriad terms exploring the concept.
Everyone is familiar with Roget's Thesaurus, this one seems to be a pretty full edition, with many, several, profuse, various, galore, words and phrases to choose from.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrrrrrrrgh 20 May 2011
By Click
Format:Kindle Edition
Don't bother

Don't waste your 69p

A thesaurus without a search option - what's the point.

Every search I attempt brings up a note saying "This item has not been indexed yet, please try again later" very helpful.

If anybody out there knows if I am trying to do something stupid please let me know.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but poor value for me at least 6 Jan 2012
By Riff
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Roget's Thesaurus [ORIGINAL UNABRIDGED EDITION] [ZHINGOORA WORLDS CLASSICS]is a better bet even though it is not perfect although nearly 5 times the price it works much better.

This super edition has very few words indexed alphabetically so the index is of little or no use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have. 30 Oct 2011
By T. Reed
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
86p for Roget is brilliant. I really can't imagine not having this to hand on my Kindle and am so glad I disregarded the previous (rather dim) reviews. Fully searchable in whatever way you want to, this is a complete must have. End of.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uselss for Kindle 15 Jun 2012
By Richard
Format:Kindle Edition
It was advertised as searchable on the Kindle but this was not the case. It merely gives you a "This title is not yet indexed" error. The table of contents is broken down by letter which is pretty useless. It didn't even have the word I was looking for as far as I could see ("self-absorbed" fyi). If you're looking for something that works like the kindle's dictionary then don't buy this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars a hopeless product 24 April 2012
By john
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is hopeless it is impossible to use it in the way it should be used ie to look up an alternative word to the one you wish to replace. I notified a so called help desk who sent instructions to reset and try again but after numerous attempts it is still a hopeless product . This experience has completely put me off the kindle.
