Regardless of the literary merits of Kipling's poetry and prose (and in both genres, he commands respect), this Kindle version of the Collected Works lacks even the most basic active Table of Contents. Consequently, navigating the huge file is a discouragingly laborious process, and rarely worth the effort. It affords the occasional moment of delightful serendipity when one lands in the wrong work and finds it worth the detour, but this does not offset the hours it takes to reach the place one is seeking, and cross referencing is well-nigh impossible. At least the poems are set out more or lesss as poems, unlike in the other Collected Works on offer, where they appear asprose, each line wrapped round to meet the next, and the typeface is also superior here. At least it looks like print whereas, in the other collected, it recalls a poor typewriter that needs cleaning. So there is a real opportunity here for someone to produce a proper, Kindle friendly edition along the lines of the series of Collected Works produced by Delphi which offers the basic tools for navigating an extensive body of work, and then some.
