2.0 out of 5 stars Eliot was English, this edition is American! 30 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't argue with the price of this collection or agree with other reviewers about any difficulties navigating. However, I did grind a little more enamel off my molars each time I read the word "color"! If, like me, you prefer to read books in the authors' own words and native languages, then this is one to avoid.

First, a complete collection of George Eliot's novels for 72p is a gift.

Second, these are, as another reviewer has said, among the greatest novels in our language.

Third, navigation isn't difficult. When the book arrives it's open at the start of "Adam Bede". Keep turning back all the way (about four clicks with with the Kindle <) until you reach the list of included books. Bookmark it so that you can easily find it again. Clicking on any title (reached by means of the up and down bits of the 4 way navigator) takes you to the chosen novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bargain but full of typos 18 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given a Kindle recently and this was my first purchase. Unlike some other reviewers, I found no difficulty in navigating to Daniel Deronda, the only novel of George Eliot's that I had not yet read. I seem to recall that when I made the purchase it was advertised as coming with illustrations and footnotes. There are neither and while I am not interested in illustrations it would have been nice to have the occasional footnote to translate German or Italian quotes although their absence is also something of a relief after the ludicrous profusion of them (frequently plot spoilers) in the Penguin editions (Felix Holt is especially bad).

However my chief grouse is with the number of typos. In Daniel Deronda these average more than one a (Kindle) page and obviously result from scanning a not very clean copy (each blemish on the original page is translated to a double quote mark and these are scattered across the text like confetti) and then apparently not even bothering to run a spell checker over the result. While this would not have picked up howlers such as "dung" for "clung", a sophisticated text check could remove unmatched quotes, numerals inserted in the middle of words, random capitalization, words run together, and general gibberish.

But at £1.29 for the complete novels, one cannot really complain. I have to agree with several other reviewers that she is the greatest novelist in the English language so this is a real bargain.

Beautifully crafted writing giving a vivid picture of people and places of the mid-C19. Sometimes a bit too wordy or moralistic for me but I can jump those paragraphs.

I enjoy reading the books, but the rather random layout of the text on my early Kindle makes for difficulties

I have decided that life is too short to read George Eliot. Her style is too wordy for the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life enhancing reading 22 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this because although I had read two or three George Eliot novels when I was young, there were several that I had not read. So I set about those. I was absolutely hooked and read five of them on the trot. Romola was a great revelation, quite unlike her other works. I have just recently come back to the collection to reread those that I read in my younger days. They are just wonderful
