5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent and Comprehensive Collection - a Bargain.
Downloaded this in the middle of the night for research purposes and was still reading a couple of hours later. I know many of these poems very well indeed, but reading on a Kindle somehow makes the longer poems much easier.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Works But Poor Presentation
The works of Burns themselves rate as five star, of course - however their presentation in this publication is not up to scratch.

This review is from: ROBERT BURNS COMPLETE WORKS ULTIMATE COLLECTION 300+ WORKS All Poetry, Poems, Songs, Ballads, Letters, Rarities PLUS BIOGRAPHY [Annotated] (Kindle Edition)
Downloaded this in the middle of the night for research purposes and was still reading a couple of hours later. I know many of these poems very well indeed, but reading on a Kindle somehow makes the longer poems much easier. Formatting poetry in eBook form isn't the easiest thing in the world, but if you pay attention to the stanza numbers, reading these is easy enough - and God bless whoever did all the work on this and then published it at such a tiny price for so much pleasure! Thank-you. Massively useful to me at the moment and excellent reading at any time. The notes, detailed and informative and very much of the period, are particularly intriguing.
