5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the Kindle
After purchasing previous Shakespeare plays for the Kindle I have been left disappointed with the formatting, layout and overall effort. However, this is a brilliant Kindle read, with clear formatting of what character is talking, as well as an easy to navigate contents page.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
Some years ago I purchased The Yale Shakespeare at a Barnes and Noble store in America. Though packed with very informative analysis and annotation, it is a huge, unwieldly volume running to over 1,500 pages. You can't take it to bed with you. So I was delighted when I saw that Kindle had brought out the Yale Shakespeare, decribed as "illustrated and annotated with Yale...

Having read and studied some of his plays at school and not really appreciating them - in my day we werent taken to the theatre or stage plays for ourselves, we read them and studied characterisation etc, - this edition allowed me to read them for pure pleasure. To relish the fantastic prose in front of me and being just a tad older than when I first read them, to appreciate the different characters and their nuances from a more mature stance. Still have several to read but really looking forward to reading them at my leisure. A tremendous edition.

I love Shakespeare. First time in hundreds of years (only joking) that I have had the chance to enjoy his work. He was definitely a genius in the time he was on this earth. Maisie Thomas (author Bully Boys)

Excellent value at such a giveaway price, and most importantly contains hyperlinks from contents page to all plays. Avoid the other collections without the hyperlinks as they are almost impossible to navigate.

So far, this seems like a good version and very true to the original. It is a book that I shall "dip into" over a very long period.

Just a few things to think about:

- Smaller text sizes aren't supported (Android Kindle).
- Navigation via hyper links is crude.
- The text is huge and very slow to search.
- Searches sometimes fail to find text.

Otherwise, good.

haven't actually read them yet, but they are handy to have, especially when my son starts secondary school, and needs copies of these plays!

Takes a bit of work to get used to the language, but once you`re on top of that,it`s nothing less than enlightening and stunning.
