2.0 out of 5 stars Ok, if you like reading typescript, 28 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The Works of Rudyard Kipling (500+ works) (Kindle Edition)
I'm not going to be over-critical of this edition. It cost me a song, and no doubt some good people put in a lot of their own time and were well-pleased with the result, but it obviously dates from the early days of Kindle formatting, and it appears on my device as basically just a typescript version of the original works. As some other reviewers have pointed out, it is particularly difficult to read the poetry in such a format (or lack of it).

I recommend that you pay the extra few pennies - and that is literally what it costs: about the price of half a pint of beer - and seek out the Coyote Canyon 'Rudyard Kipling Collection' in the Kindle Store. Rudyard Kipling Collection (500+ Works) The Jungle Book, Kim, Just So Stories, Gunga Din, Mandalay, Indian Tales & more That edition is nicely formatted in the now-familiar Kindle style, and is infinitely more pleasurable to read than this prototype version.

Thanks for pointing out the other version. It's worth the extra small amount of money and it's lovely looking at the photographs and other illustrations, making it very interesting. The table of contents is good as well.
It all works very well on the kindle.

Cheers, Vanessa. Glad to point you in the right direction. I'm soon embarking on a long flight and holiday. The Kipling collection - especially the short stories - is going to be my antidote to the 'Nordic Noir' novels that I've otherwise stocked up on my Kindle to keep me amused on the plane!

Help - not only does the link not work, neither does a word search on Coyote Canyon 'Rudyard Kipling Collection'!
