Apart from a few typos this is an excellent anthology, I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to catch up the classics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dickens 5 - Kindle Edition 0
Who in their right mind could fault Dickens; I certainly would never dream of it.
My problem is with the company who created the electronic version.

What slipshod practices are afoot when there does not seem to have been much, if indeed any, attempt to proofread the final copy. Errors and omissions abound: and that is only on the first tale I have read...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dickens 5 - Kindle Edition 0, 22 Feb 2013

This review is from: CHARLES DICKENS | THE COMPLETE WORKS [Special Illustrated Edition] All the Major Works of Charles Dickens in a Single Volume (Illustrated) (The Complete Works of Charles Dickens Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Who in their right mind could fault Dickens; I certainly would never dream of it.
My problem is with the company who created the electronic version.

What slipshod practices are afoot when there does not seem to have been much, if indeed any, attempt to proofread the final copy. Errors and omissions abound: and that is only on the first tale I have read (The Old Curiosity Shop) so it is almost a certainty the whole book will be of similar ilk. I will not further tarnish the image of Dickens, or that of the reading experience, by continuing with this copy.

I'm off to the High Street to buy myself a hard copy by a reputable publisher.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Dickens, 6 July 2013

This review is from: CHARLES DICKENS | THE COMPLETE WORKS [Special Illustrated Edition] All the Major Works of Charles Dickens in a Single Volume (Illustrated) (The Complete Works of Charles Dickens Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
As far as content is concerned, marvellous. How could it not be? I do find it, however a little fiddly navigating from one book to another. Also the Kindle treats the collection as just one book, so it is difficult sometimes to know how far through an individual book I have read

What a cornucopia, what an abundance of the finest literature in the English Language and how fortunate we are, how privileged are we who can dip into it whenever the impulse prompts us.

This review is from: CHARLES DICKENS | THE COMPLETE WORKS [Special Illustrated Edition] All the Major Works of Charles Dickens in a Single Volume (Illustrated) (The Complete Works of Charles Dickens Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
The works are of course wonderful, my problem is that there appears to be no index or any other method of selecting any particular work. Reading the complete works to find a particular novel seems a mammoth task.

It is the complete works of Dickens - what more needs to be said? His work cannot rate less than 5 stars in character and narrative depth.
