4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and mannered 22 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found Wharton's language quite difficult at the beginning, however once you become accustomed to her style of writing the pace improves. Her observations on women in particular is extremely well drawn and what I especially enjoyed is that her characters are not always sympathetic which livens up the plot, really gets you into the narrative, sometimes she invites you to shout out at the idiocy of the behaviour of one character or another! This is a departure from that of most other writers. Wharton is prolific, but her short stories are well worth a read if you can't face an entire novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edith Wharton - Greeting An Old Friend 1 Nov 2011
By Helene Stephens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hadn't read Edith Wharton for some time, so I was happy to find this Kindle offering. Just made my purchase & I note that there is a CLEAR INDEX in the front; it is very easy to navigate and looks just like the side illustration (the one next to the cover pic). For 99 cents, this is a true bargain; many stories here! I'm glad to have Ms. Wharton on my Kindle; it feels just like meeting an old friend again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection - and there is a table of content. Here's how to find it. 27 Jan 2012
By JayDee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am familiar with Edith Wharton's works so it is good to see so many stories in one book. I haven't read them in so long and it will be like reading new books all over again.

For the person who said there was no table of contents - there is but you have to look for it by the same method that so many collections has it listed. The book opens at the beginning. You can either use the BACK feature to go backward and you will see the TOC, as well as all the way back and you will see the cover. OR you can go to MENU and press GO then you will see where it says COVER. Highlight that and press enter and it will open at the cover. Then use page forward to see the table of contents. Most collections work this way, but I have downloaded a couple of books where the TOC does not allow you to choose the book you want; you have to read from the beginning to the end.

If you are reading the book in the software for the PC (and I assume it is the same in the MAC):
The book will open at the first story. Just scroll back up to see the table of contents as well as the cover. OR click on GO up top of the screen then click on COVER.

4.0 out of 5 stars Active TOC leads to BOOK titles, but NOT to s.s. titles 16 Feb 2012
By Librarian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
[This pertains to the H & H edition.] The TOC easily permits you to go directly to those titles which the editors have chosen to include in their TOC. While several of these happen to pertain to specific short stories, the majority of titles in the TOC are of BOOKS. However, there is no direct access to the SHORT STORIES contained within seven of those books which are compilations of such stories -- not even a listing of them so the reader can know what to search for. And there are LOTS of great stories "hidden" within them.

As near as I can figure, there are 7 in "Crucial Instances," 9 in "Descent of Man," 5 in part-1 of her "Early Short Fiction," 6 in part-2 of her "Early Short Fiction," 8 in "The Greater Inclination," 7 in "The Hermit and the Wild Woman," and 10 in "Tales of Men and Ghosts," for a total of 52 short stories. But a number of these stories are duplicated (SOME reappearing -- as mentioned earlier -- as separate entities within the TOC), so the grand total is a bit lower. Some poems are also thrown into the mix, but these appear formatted as prose rather than arranged in stanzas and are uncomfortable to read. These are the reasons an otherwise five star collection gets only four. Nevertheless, at such a low price for so much great content, it's hard to complain too much.

UPDATE 08-11-14: Despite my criticism above, I still greatly enjoy this particular collection and have not replaced it with any other (though Delphi has a set well worth considering).

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Jane Austen... 28 Aug 2012
By Florida Paddler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
...you will love Edith Wharton too! She was 100 years later than Austen & American rather than British, but like Austen wrote of upper class life & manners (in New York City rather than England) with beautifully drawn characters, both male & female. All her books (like Austen's) are page-turners.I downloaded the Works of Edith Wharton to my Iphone which permits me to read in every spare second. I'm currently reading Wharton's ghost stories, most of which are actually about the human spirit (was Wharton using the term "ghost" ironically?) and a few of which are actually about ghosts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edith was a complicated woman..... 13 Oct 2012
By klt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Love the short stories. She has a masterful way of spinning a tale.
Reading her books I tend to get bogged down a bit. Not quite sure what
she means at times while waxing poetically about situations and people.
Lovely writing, you just have to be in her groove to comprehend it all.
